Thank you to all of the fans who shared our journey with us and supported us in everything. We love you. Stay tuned, we can’t wait to let you know what we have planned. Have a nice weekend.”
Jax did not disclose the reason for his and Brittany exits, and HollywoodLife has asked Bravo for a comment. After his co-stars, he is the newest star to leave the series Stassi Schroeder, Kristen doubt, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were fired from the series in June 2020 due to separate controversies – but unlike those castmates, Jax never stated he was fired.
However, Jax became embroiled in his own controversy over a re-surfaced racist comment Ashley MartsonThe comment was left on a photo of Ashley, 33, and her husband Jay Smith, 22, – who is black – about the appearance of his nose. “Your husband’s nose is the size of his head …” Jax wrote at the time, which Ashley revealed in re-released screenshots on Tuesday, June 9th.
“Did you see Bravo fired four actors? Well, @bravotv isn’t leaving out old Jax Taylor who pestered us when our show first aired, “said the 90-day fiancé star. “If you don’t understand why I find this racist, please take a look at my story. Education is the key. “She went on to explain why Jax’s comment on her Instagram stories was derogatory.
“If your nose or my nose is said to be big, it’s probably just a big nose,” Ashley began her long and informative post. “Black people have historically been dyed a monkey or ape, which is supposed to be derogatory … One of the most popular racist stereotypes is related to a black person’s nose, which in turn suggests that it is similar to that of a monkey.” While some commentators initially looked confused by Jax’s comment, Ashley quickly clapped back.

“We’re happy to send you literature from the history books to help you understand why a white person should NEVER comment on the size of a black person’s nose or lips,” wrote Ashley.
