AceShowbiz - Eva Marcille angered fans with her comments during the latest episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta". People deemed the TV star "colorist" after she called co-stars Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore "nappy heads," prompting some of them to start a petition to get her fired.
Eva made the comments during a phone call with fellow "RHOA" cast member Cynthia Bailey. During the conversation, Cynthia told Eva that Kenya felt offended that she didn't bring her kids to her daughter Brooklyn's Barbie-Themed birthday party.
"I am not here for the s**t with these little nappy heads this year, I'm telling you," Eva said to Cynthia. "I will get all the South Central out on that a**."
The derogatory comment didn't sit well with most viewers who took to social media to express their anger. "Nappy heads?! #Bravo #RHOA can do without @EvaMarcille and these type of remarks. Thanks," one fan ranted. Calling Eva racist and disgusting, another one added, "#RHOA I was absolutely disgusted when @EvaMarcille called one of her Co Stars a nappy head. She is so racist against black women. She repeatedly bashes African American women. Disgusting."
Initiated by Elite Twirl, the Charge.org petition seeks Eva's firing, adding that the Bravo personality "seems to have an issue with dark-skinned women and women with naturally kinky/coily hair." The petition also labels Eva as colorist due to her comments on her black castmates in addition to the majority of black women.
This isn't the first time that Eva made a racially derogatory remark against a brown-skinned Black woman. Last season, she landed in hot water after she said that Shamea Morton, a friend to the show, "is Black, but not with a 'q' " while comparing her to Blaque singer and former season 11 co-star Shamari DeVoe.
