Stassi Schroeder Admits She Was a 'Karen,' Discusses Cancel Culture After Being Fired from 'Vanderpump Rules'

Stassi Schroeder has given her first interview since being fired from the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules and she’s discussing the racial misconduct incident that caused her to be canceled.

The 32-year-old reality star and her co-star Kristen Doute both were called out by their other co-star Faith Stowers back in June, when she brought up how they both reported her to police for thinking she was a woman who was robbing places after an article was posted on a website about the crimes.

Stassi and Kristen were both fired from the show and they last their jobs and representation. In a new interview on The Tamron Hall Show, Stassi was asked about what happened and even admitted she was a “Karen” in the past.

“I do absolutely understand,” Stassi said after being asked if she understood the ramifications of her actions. “I’ve spent the last three months working with a teacher and learning about everything. And there was so much that I didn’t know. I didn’t understand that just because something wasn’t about race for me, doesn’t mean it’s not about race for the other person because I’m bringing my experience as a White privileged woman to this situation and she’s bringing her experience as a Black woman into this situation. And because it’s about race for her, it is about race. And that’s something that I’ve realized.”

“I am the reason why I’m in this situation. I think a lot of people wanted me to focus on cancel culture and whether I was a victim or not, and it’s just not how I feel at all,” she added.

Stassi, who is pregnant with her first child, doesn’t plan on returning to reality television.

“That ship has sailed,” she said. “And my life feels very different right now, I think when something like this happens and you get pregnant on top of it, you take inventory of your life and you think what is going to be the best for my future child and I think getting drunk and starting conflict and misbehaving on a reality show isn’t my journey anymore.”
