"I've been in a position where I've received so much hate before," she explained of being "canceled" in 2020 for racially insensitive comments made in the past. "I don't like where we're at, like, in society where, like, that's how we punish people."
"It's like emotionally beheading people," the Next Level Basic author continued. "Who's to decide what the punishment should be? Like, who makes someone the authority on that? What makes this person on their computer the authority on what they think is enough hate for him to receive? I don't get down with that. I really, I don't like it."
Although she can relate to the disgraced TomTom cofounder — who infamously cheated on ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix with their friend Raquel Leviss — she and Sandoval have never been the best of friends.
"Do I like Tom Sandoval? No. Do I think what he did is disgusting and -- like, f*** him!" she said before clarifying, "But, like, see now I feel like I'm even adding to it. Like, the online vitriol."

However, that does not mean that the OOT Day founder did not relish in watching the rocker's downfall. "I felt like he was always so beloved, and I would even say to my producers, I'm like, 'When is he going to get the edit that like I feel like the rest of us see?'" she explained of her time starring on the show with Sandoval.

"Why does he keep like getting away with being just this dude who just wants to like, 'Give people things and help people out, man,'" she continued. "That's not what I'm seeing. I'm seeing somebody who's constantly blaming others for things and dredging things up from the past, and like, just deflecting constantly. If the rest of us look bad, then he looks good. And I've always felt that way."
