The new season of RHONY has not even aired yet but new Housewife Lizzy Savetsky announced she’s quitting the show because of anti-Jewish hate she’s already received.
“I will not be continuing on the Real Housewives of NYC. As a proud orthodox Jewish woman, I thought participating in this series would be a great chance to represent people like me and share my experience,” she wrote on Instagram. “Unfortunately, from the time of my announcement in the cast, I was on the receiving end of a torrent of antisemitic attacks. As this continued, I realized that this path was no longer right for me and my family.”
A source close to her also confirmed the news to Page Six.
“As soon as she was announced, she was getting insane threats and anti-Semitism on social media,” a source said. A second source added that she had “experienced hate from fans for being pro-Israel.”
