Jax Taylor is Stepping Down From the Company He Cofounded With Lance Bass
Jax Taylor is apparently distancing himself from the drink mixer company he co-founded with Lance Bass, Just Add X, as Vanderpump Rules fans are calling for his firing over some insensitive comments.
During a recent episode on Lance’s podcast Daily Popcast, costars Giggles and Turkey began to discuss Jax’s behavior. That’s when Lance stepped in to clarify that his working relationship with Jax has suffered.
“It’s gonna cost him everything and he’s stepping down from Just Add X, which you know, we have to,” the singer said. “We can’t be involved and associated with any of this going down. We have to do the right thing.”
Of course, Jax has recently come under fire for insinuating that his costar, Ariana Madix, is a lesbian. He also hired a pastor with a history of making anti-LGBTQ+ remarks to officiate his June 2019 wedding, before Lance stepped in to do the honors. Jax also accused former cast member Faith Stowers of committing crimes.
In a nutshell, Jax has become slightly unhinged.
While he has not been axed from Bravo yet, nearly 2,500 fans have signed a Change.org petition calling for him to be fired.
Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired last week after past racist behavior resurfaced. Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were also let go over racist tweets from 2012.
Oy! We’ll certainly keep you posted.
