Tamra Judge’s son Ryan Vieth went on an explosive rant on January 17 where he suggested the murder of a transgender person. The Real Housewives of Orange County star initially didn’t respond to the transphobic comments, but some fans believed she agreed with her son. On January 21, Tamra posted a statement on Instagram to address the hurtful remarks.

Tamra continued, “Admittedly, I had a concerned 'mom' moment when referring to a post about a 5-year-old making life altering decisions. My comment did not come from a place of hate.”

On January 15, Ryan shared an article about Britain’s first transgender family transitioning their 5-year-old son along with the caption, “LETS BE F**KING REAL, THE WORLD IS F**KED. COMPLETELY F**KED.” In the now-deleted post, Tamra commented, “Wow that’s sad. 5-year-old cannot make a decision like that.”

Fans then slammed Tamra in the comments section of her Instagram. "WOW! Transphobia @tamrajudge ???? You liked and commented support for your homophobic son's post??? You've been the only person that saved RHOC for me. Orange County has been such a scary place for me growing up: large amounts of white supremacy, racism, homopohobia and Republicans etc. I always admired your supposed support for my community while going against the grain. So disappointed in you,” one person wrote.

Ryan’s Instagram account has since been deleted after he suggested a murder plot against someone who sued a Colorado baker for refusing to make a cake celebrating their gender transition. He wrote, “Hopefully this guy goes on a rampage and kills whatever transgendered f**k head took him to court. Ooops did I just say that.”
