Sunday night’s Real Housewives of Atlanta took an ugly, seemingly transphobic turn. Ugh.
While we normally love the shady shots the RHOA ladies throw at one another, this week, the insults were particularly intolerant when Miz Moore accused Zolciak-Biermann of being transgender in a derogatory manner. It all started when the Don’t Be Tardy star made vicious quips about how Kenya’s husband, Marc Daly, doesn’t exist.
In case you missed it, the former Miss USA winner has kept her marriage away from the limelight and has yet to introduce him to many of her costars. Understandably, this fact has caused tension amongst the ladies as, during the episode, many pressured Kenya to bring Marc out of hiding.
“It ain’t gonna fucking happen, bitch, because he don’t exist… It’s all a bunch of lies, a bunch of bullshit – he don’t exist!”
This clearly didn’t sit well with Kenya as she lobbed the following at Zolciak-Biermann:
“Shut the fuck up, OK? Why do you have such a hard-on for me? Didn’t they cut it off during your reassignment surgery?”
Oh snap. Although Kim walked away from this confrontation, it seems the feud has continued on Twitter. During the airing of the controversial episode, Kenya wrote on the social media site:
Unsurprisingly, the Bravolebrity was ready to offer up a heated response, as she hit back with:
Sweetie Ive been married 6 yrs move on… BUT you call your man “baby” to try and be like me, you have a white Bentley that I had YEARS ago to be like me! Remember Sweetie Im on 2 shows and you aren’t even on one!! #Fired https://t.co/C3D3jkFz5l

Kim also made sure to highlight criticisms that Moore’s remark was, in fact, transphobic (below).
Man, oh man. Nonetheless, Kenya has since defended that her comment was in no way transphobic. She added:
Both Kim and Kenya have shared various social media messages defending their respective stances.
What do YOU think?? Was Kenya’s remark transphobic??
SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
