Bethenny Frankel is known for being a very controversial woman, and it sounds like she isn’t apologizing for her latest stunt. Over the weekend when most of New York was snowed in, Bethenny headed out to Kmart to pick up some things and she tweeted about her experiences. Frankel’s tweets shocked the world and she was labeled a racist. According to a new report, Bethenny Frankel is now defending her decision, claiming that she’s not racist and people don’t have to agree with her.
“People don’t always love me. They may even hate me, but they know that I’m telling it direct,” Frankel revealed to US Weekly at her candy launch, adding, “I would never be one of those celebrities that just wants to please everybody and wants to say exactly what everybody wants to hear and tiptoes around. If you want to hear my opinion, go on Instagram or Twitter and it’s there. You don’t have to agree with me.”
The tweets made headlines because of her discriminatory tweets. In case you missed the tweets, she wrote the following to her thousands of followers.
“Wow @Kmart has 2 registers open w 5 other employees standing around two speak no English whatsoever. Shoes are sapatos right?” Bethenny previous revealed on Twitter, adding, “Not even attempting kids’ snow boots in Spanish.”
Frankel is currently living both in the Hamptons and in New York City, and she’s busy with her Skinnygirl business and The Real Housewives of New York. One can imagine that she will be talking about this controversy on the show, because they have been filming for months. On the other hand, this may be another pointless controversy for her.
What do you think of Bethenny Frankel’s decision not to apologize? Do you think she could be getting into more trouble by standing by her comments?
