Erica Mena fired from ‘Love & Hip Hop’ after calling co-star ‘monkey’

Erica Mena will not be making an appearance on the upcoming season of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” after using a derogatory term towards her co-star, Spice, during a heated argument. The VH1 series released a statement on Instagram, stating that they have always been willing to address difficult conversations within the community. They mentioned that the impact of Mena’s remarks will be seen in the final three episodes of the season. The announcement concluded by stating that she will no longer be a part of the next season of the show. TheFantasyTimes has reached out to Mena’s representatives and the network for comment but has not received a response yet.

During Tuesday’s episode, Mena got into a heated confrontation with Spice. The musician told Mena that her oldest son dislikes her, to which Mena responded by flipping a table and calling Spice a derogatory term. Fans had been calling for Mena to be fired from the show after the incident. They found her use of the racial slur offensive, especially considering the predominantly Black cast of the show.

Several viewers expressed their opinions on social media, with one user stating that Mena should be fired from the show for using such language. Another user questioned whether Mena was also referring to her own children, who are biracial, when she used the term. The general consensus among fans was that Mena’s actions were racist and that she should face consequences for them.

While Mena herself has not publicly addressed the incident, Spice mentioned in an interview with Forbes that she is in a better place following the altercation. She stated that she is on a journey of personal growth and feels that it comes with the territory of being on the show.

Mena joined the cast of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” in 2018 after appearing in multiple seasons of “Love & Hip Hop: New York.” Aside from her eldest son from a previous relationship, she also has two children with her ex-husband, Safaree. The couple tied the knot in 2019 but recently ended their marriage in 2021 after having a daughter and a son together.

Erica Mena will “not appear” on the next season of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” after she called her co-star Spice a “monkey” during a heated argument.

“The ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise has never shied away from hard conversations in our community,” the VH1 series wrote in an Instagram statement Saturday. “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,’” the announcement concluded.

TheFantasyTimes has reached out to Mena’s reps and the network for comment but did not immediately hear back.
