Eric Mena of “Love & Hiphop” has been removed from the show after the reality star called a Black woman a monkey.
The franchise officials posted on Instagram Saturday that Mena would be removed.
In an episode released on MTV recently, Mena is seen arguing with costar Spice, who said Mena’s son did not love her. In response, Mena, in a rage, flipped a table and called Spice a monkey.
Spice is Black, and Mena is Latina of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent.
“The ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise has never shied away from hard conversations in our community. Working hand-in-hand with our partners, viewers will see the impact of Erica Mena’s remarks play out in the final three episodes of the season,” the post said. “Effective immediately, she will not appear in the next season of ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.’” View this post on Instagram
