Stassi Schroeder dropped by brands after calling police on Faith Stowers
Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute are under fire for a 2018 incident involving former “Vanderpump Rules” cast member Faith Stowers.
While the pair have been posting in support of Black Lives Matter on their Instagram pages this week, fans pointed out their past contradictory behavior in the comments.
During an Instagram Live chat with “Floribama Shore” star Candace Rice, Stowers recalled when Schroeder, 31, and Doute, 37, tried to get the cops to investigate her for allegedly drugging men and stealing watches.
“There was this article in the Daily Mail where there was an African-American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. I guess this woman was robbing people,” Stowers said in the Instagram video.
“And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview.”
Schroeder proudly recounted the incident during an interview on the “Bitch Bible” podcast in 2018. According to People, she recalled that she and Doute compared Stowers’ hair and tattoos to the security footage and contacted the police because they saw a resemblance.
“We are like, we just solved a f—king crime,” Schroeder reportedly said on the now-deleted episode. “We start calling the police. The police don’t give a f—k.”
Doute shared the photo on social media, tweeting, “I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there.” She later posted a photo of Stowers as “proof.”
Since Stowers spoke up — and outraged fans amplified her statements — brands have begun dropping Schroeder from partnerships.
Buzzy shaving brand Billie confirmed to Page Six Style that they have severed ties with the star, writing on their Instagram that the company is “ending all of our partnerships with anyone who isn’t supporting the fight against racism.”
Hip vitamin startup Ritual is also dropping Schroeder, Page Six Style confirmed. “We were not aware of her actions and realize that is unacceptable and part of our responsibility. We have ended our partnership with Stassi, and we are committed to doing more thorough diligence on all our brand partners going forward,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
“We stand against inequality and racial injustice and under no circumstances will standby and promote partnerships that reflect otherwise.”
The reality star has also been contributing a bridal-themed column to Glamour magazine ahead of her wedding to Beau Clark. However, the magazine has not published any content from her since March 11, and has no plans to continue at this time, Page Six Style has learned.
Reps for Schroeder and Doute did not immediately return Page Six Style’s request for comment.
