It seems there might not be any love left in Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, after one of the reality show’s stars, Hazel-E, went on a racist and homophobic rant on social media.

The 27-year-old raptress dug herself a pretty deep hole this week, after getting into a feud with comedian Jessica Robin Moore (otherwise known as Jess Hilarious). Following Moore’s claims about Hazel’s beau Rose Burgandy having a secret relationship with another man, the couple took to social media with their responses, which had severely racist and homophobic connotations.

While Hazel took to her own Instagram account to defend her man against claims of a supposedly secret gay relationship, Burgandy posted to his page as well. Both attacks included anti-gay comments, as well as some racially charged words.


“You really want to know how I feel about gays so bad well here you go I hope all gays die and go to hell thats where I’m come from,” Burgandy captioned a photo of a burning gay pride flag, followed by a comment from Hazel echoing the sentiment. “Burn in hell just like God said in the Bible!” she wrote.

The LGBTQ community, who were unfairly dragged into the feud, immediately expressed outrage. But beyond the homophobic comments made by the two were some harsh words toward Moore, as well as Hazel’s LHHH co-stars regarding the color of their skin. In a photo of Moore and her son posted to Hazel’s page, the reality star made negative remarks about the comedian’s dark skin — but she wasn’t the only one who received Hazel’s wrath. A collage of the star’s LHHH cast mates was posted immediately afterward with more racial comments comparing her light skin with their darker complexions.

“Sorry mom you kept me away from these type of girls all my life,” Hazel wrote, “you said they would hate me because I’m light skin…you were right!”

Social media reactions to the rant were intense. However, the consequences went far beyond hateful comments. Hazel was dropped by partner ShoeDazzle and is now facing possible firing from the reality show.


The online shoe retailer previously partnered up with the reality star as part of their celebrity brand ambassador program over the summer. According to an Instagram post already deleted by Hazel, the deal was meant to last only four months but was nonetheless cut short after her homophobic statement.

According to TMZLHHH creator Mona Scott-Young is attempting to get Hazel off the show. But in the meantime, Scott-Young took to social media to express her intolerance of such hate.


Hazel recently issued an apology for her hurtful words, saying that they weren’t directed toward the entire LGBTQ community. But for most of her former fans, it seems that her “sorry” isn’t cutting it.
