Vanderpump Rules' fired Jax Taylor mocked by fans after he promotes $10 frozen dinners as new season airs without him
JAX Taylor has been mocked for promoting $10 frozen dinners as the new season of Vanderpump Rules airs without him.
The 42-year-old was allegedly fired from the Bravo show after making "racist" and "transphobic" comments.
Season nine of Vanderpump Rules premiered on Tuesday night without Jax or his wife Brittany Cartwright.
But Jax ignored the return of the show, flogging healthy frozen meals for the brand Evolve instead.
Standing in his kitchen, the reality star wore a flannel shirt and held a meal in each hand in a video on his Instagram Stories.
Jax told the camera: "I live in Hollywood, I go out to dinner all the time.
"And I take this way over the stuff that I eat in Hollywood. It's absolutely amazing."
Bravo viewers ripped Jax as "desperate" after Instagram fan account Cocktailsandgossip shared a video of his ad.
One wrote: "Because who wouldn’t rather promote a random food service to being on a top reality TV show."
Another added: "He takes a prepackaged meal over any other place you could eat at? It's giving desperate vibes but hey it pays the bills boo."
A third posted: "This is the definition of, 'I’ll take any work I can get.'"
Jax and his wife Brittany were allegedly axed from Vanderpump Rules ahead of the new season.
The couple simultaneously posted similar messages announcing their sudden departure on Instagram on December 4.
'FIRED' BY BRAVO
A spokesperson from Bravo confirmed that “Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright will not be returning to ‘Vanderpump Rules,'” to Variety.
Jax had been cast on the show for eight seasons.
Days before their announcement, 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson has spoken out to fire Jax for a past "racist" comment he made about her husband, Jay Smith.
She posted on Instagram: "Did y’all see bravo fired four cast members? Well @bravotv don’t leave out old Jax Taylor who harassed us when our show first aired.”
VPR alum, Billie Lee, who is transgender, has accused him of being transphobic.
Last week Billie tweeted at the network: “What about Jax Taylor? He refused to film with me because I was trans and called him out on his white cis privilege.
“Stop celebrating his disgusting actions,” she fired off along with a “cancel Jax Taylor” hashtag.
Jax’s comments cost him a lot – as it was reported he was the highest-paid earner on the VPR cast with an alleged salary of $25,000 per episode.
Earlier this year, The Sun exclusively revealed that Jax owed over a million dollars from several outstanding tax liens after just purchasing a $2M Los Angeles home with Brittany.
More than six months later, The Sun has confirmed with both the California State Tax Board and officials with the IRS that Jax, 42, has still not paid off his debts.
The ex bartender – whose real name is Jason Michael Cauchi – has an unpaid history that goes all the way back to 2014 – where he also owes nearly $23,000 from the tax period ending that year.
