Problems continue for reality TV star Stassi Schroeder, who is dealing with the fallout from the resurfacing of racially insensitive material found online and through her social media channels.
A day after further audio resurfaced of the Vanderpump Rules star, 31, speaking negatively about black people, and after losing several endorsement deals over the past week, Schroeder has now been forced to part ways with both her agent and her publicist, Variety reports.
A spokesperson for UTA, where Schroeder was represented, has confirmed she is no longer a client of the agency.

Additionally, a representative of the PR firm Metro Public Relations told the publication: ‘[Schroeder] became a client when her publicist joined our company in July 2018. We made the decision this weekend to part ways with Stassi.’
The moves by her former reps come after Schroeder apologized for past ‘racially insensitive comments’ and for a particularly demeaning stunt, in which she purposefully misled the police in an effort to get her black former costar Faith Stowers – whom she didn’t like – in trouble.
Schroeder was vocal online recently about her support for the Black Lives Matter movement; however, the gestures seemed significantly different to her output from three years ago.
She claimed that black people demanded special treatment in her March 2, 2017 podcast in which she talked about the lack of diversity of Academy Award candidates, referred to on social media as #OscarsSoWhite.

‘Maybe you weren’t nominated because you didn’t do that great of a job in your movie,’ said Schroeder. ‘Like it’s not about race. It’s literally like not about what you look like at all. It’s like your acting ability, so like, what the actual f***?’
The New Orleans-born reality star said on the podcast (which she later deleted from her site, according to US) of black people: ‘When they get upset, everybody has to go above and beyond to then make them happy.
‘I’m like, really sick of everyone making everything about race – I’m kind of over it.’
Despite the take on race, Schroeder had plenty more to say about the topic: ‘Like, everyone giving their impassioned speeches about race and all of that stuff, I’m like, “Why is it always just about African Americans?”

Speaking out: Stassi said she’s refocused her mentality amid the career crisis, which has seen her lose sponsors and admit to ‘racially insensitive comments’
