Garcelle Beauvais had fallen out with Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna and Diana Jenkins, castmates of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” which comes with Bravo series territory. Unfortunately, Beauvais’ son Jax Nilon found himself in the middle of the drama when Jayne exploded on him during an episode that aired July 5. “Get out of here,” Jayne yelled at the teen (via Page Six). Afterward, the Coming 2 America actress cast a slight shadow at her RHOBH co-star on Instagram while praising her sons. “You show people respect even when they don’t deserve it,” Beauvais wrote on July 5, alongside a snap of her three sons.
Shortly after, the “The Jamie Foxx Show” alum discussed Jayne’s mistreatment of Jax. “It’s unfortunate that had to happen… But he’s good. He’s good,” Beauvais told Us Weekly on July 13. However, she was upset with how her “RHOBH” castmate was treating him. “That definitely crosses the line. No doubt,” she added.
The next month, Rinna also said a line was crossed when she realized several children of “RHOBH” stars were the target of online harassment. “Why on earth can’t you treat it like wrestling? Love us love hate us but leave the kids alone,” the “Melrose Place” actress wrote on her Instagram stories on Aug. 23 (via Us Weekly). It was around this time that Beauvais’ son shared some of the inflammatory news he received from mad fans.
Garcelle Beauvais’ son releases statement on online harassment
Garcelle Beauvais’ son, Jax Nilon, took to his Instagram stories on Aug. 23 to share a handful of the trolling comments he’d received online. One particular comment was of particular concern as the teen shared a screenshot. “Your neck would be kneeling if it wasn’t for your white daddy. Tell your mom to leave Diana alone or you take care of us,” the comment read. The ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star’s son issued a statement about his mother’s on August 24 Twitter account about being harassed. Jax mentioned that being bombarded with hateful messages wasn’t how he envisioned the beginning of his high school career. “I have not signed up for this show, nor do I have anything to do with the drama of the show,” he said in the statement. “However, it wasn’t what I expected for my first week of high school, middle-aged women showering me with racist and rude comments about my family.”
Most of the replies to Jax’s statement – posted on his mother’s account – offered words of support for the family. Although a Twitter user recommended Beauvais and her son just turn down the noise and “go private or turn off the comments.”
A day earlier, on August 23, the “RHOBH” star was seen tweeted a heartfelt message while asking viewers to stop the malicious trolling. Beauvais wrote, “It’s just a TV show, people yell at your TV, throw something at your TV, but leave our kids alone.”
