Erica Mena took an argument too far.
Now the mother of three is fired from the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast. On a recent episode, Erica caught major heat after calling her cast mate, Spice, a racist slur.
While some of the cast mates were out eating, Spice and Erica got into an argument. Spice accused Mena of “acting like she's the first woman to be divorced" and told her that her son doesn't like her. Then, Erica reacted by flipping a table and calling Spice a "blue monkey” during the heated argument.
Earlier in the episode, Erica told Spice she should have died while she battled a health issue. People reports that Erica used racial slurs in the past. For example, in 2015 she called Johnni Blaze a “black monkey.”
The network posted a statement over the weekend and said as a result, Erica won’t be returning to the show. It read:
“The Love & Hip Hop franchise has never shied away from hard conversations in our community. Working hand-in-hand with our partners, viewers will see the impact of Erica Mena’s remarks play out in the final three episodes of the season. Effective immediately, she will not appear in the next season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
