FORMER Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder begged Bravo to “never fire” her just four months before the network let her go over “racist” accusations.
Bravo announced Tuesday that the 31-year-old, along with her cast mate Kristen Doute, will not return to the series after it was discovered they once called the cops on VPR alum Faith Stowers.
Stassi, 31, has not yet commented since the firing but pleaded with the network to never give her the axe just months ago.
In a post from February 5, the TV personality smiled for the cameras seated between Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen, 52, and Summer House’s Kyle Cooke.
“Dear Bravo, please never fire me, because I love this s**t so much,” she said of the on-set snapshot.
Fans have called out the photo’s caption for “not aging well” as she was given the boot soon after.
“This is POETIC JUSTICE,” one follower commented on the post.
Another fired off: “Maybe you shouldn’t be racist if you wanted to keep your job you love so much!”
“Thank you getting rid of the trash,” someone wrote before tagging Bravo boss, Andy.
Some users said “Bye Karen!” as a reference to the popular meme that criticizes certain white women’s behavior.
Earlier today, Bravo issued a statement that also revealed newcomers Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not return after racist tweets were uncovered.
“Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules,” the TV giant confirmed.
It comes after Stassi and Kristen were accused by former cast member Faith, 31, of reporting her to the police for a crime which she was not connected to.
The duo – who had been best friends for years – had a falling out on the latest season over a fight about Kristen getting back together with her ex, Brian Carter.
After the allegations came to light, Stassi was dropped by multiple sponsors, as well as her agent and publicist.
On Sunday, she posted a lengthy note of “remorse” to her 2.1 million Instagram followers.
"Racially insensitive comments from my past have resurfaced. It is important that I continue to take accountability for what I have said and done, while pushing myself to do better," she shared.
“I have grown significantly from the person I was then, and I am still filled with remorse and regret for the hurt I caused,” she wrote.
Stassi then addressed her ex co-star specifically: ”What I did to Faith was wrong. I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness. I am also sorry to anyone else that feels disappointed in me.”
Brett first apologized for his tweets in January, in a statement which read: "I want to express my deepest apologies for the insensitive, ignorant, and hurtful comments I made.
“I am incredibly ashamed and accept full responsibility, and acknowledge that this language was as unacceptable then as it is now.
"Please know that I have learned and grown since then and would never use this language today. From the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry.”
On last week's reunion, Brett apologized for a second time.
