“They ask me what Asian I am because my eyes, they squinty"

US Magazine reports that Real Housewives of Dallas star Brandi Redmond has apologised for a racist video in which she mocked Asian people.

Originally posted three years ago, Redmond’s 2017 Instagram story has just recently resurfaced after Steve Kemble, wedding planner of castmate LeeAnne Locken, shared the clip on Twitter.

“Take A Seat #BrandiRedmond Remember this!? I Do! with your kids in the video,” Kemble captioned the old video. “If @BravoTV @Andy @BravoWWHL #stephaniehollman #karybrittingham & #dandrasimmoms want to call @LeeAnneLocken ‘racist’ then either apologize to LL or LABEL BRANDI REDMOND RACIST too!”

In the clip, the reality TV star speaks in an exaggerated Asian accent and says “they ask me what Asian I am because my eyes, they squint.”

Redmond has since apologised via Twitter, stating she also apologised when the video was first shared.

“A video resurfaced of me from three years ago which at the time I had posted and quickly deleted and then immediately apologized for my insensitivity,” she wrote on Twitter.“I would like to once again sincerely apologize for my offensive actions.”

In an episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Redmond herself called out Locken for racist language.
