Diana Jenkins sues ‘bots’ who attacked Garcelle Beauvais’ son

Diana Jenkins filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Thursday in an effort to expose the “bots” who cyberbullied Garcelle Beauvais’ 14-year-old son Jax — since she’s been blamed for the attacks.

“Dozens, if not hundreds, of people have posted messages attacking Ms. Jenkins for an act she never committed,” Jenkins’ lawyers said in the lawsuit, obtained by Vidak For Congress.

“This action is the only way for Ms. Jenkins to fight back against the faceless coward who decided to put her reputation, livelihood and life at risk.”

Jenkins, 49, previously revealed that she had to hire 24/7 security because she reportedly received death threats from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” fans.

In August, Jax revealed on Instagram that he received hateful messages from viewers angry at Beauvais, 55, over her feuds with Jenkins, Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne on “RHOBH” and drama that played out around an “uneducated” comment. Jenkins made about a creator of black content.

“I’m a 14-year-old, please leave me alone,” the teen previously wrote in a video that showed a slew of racist comments from fans, including one that read, “You’d drop your neck on your knees if that was the case.” so was.” t for your white daddy, [Michael Nilon]. Tell your mother to leave Diana alone or deal with us.’

Jenkins — along with Rinna, 59, Jayne, 51, and other “RHOBH” cast members — reposted a statement from Bravo rejecting the social media comments sent to Jax.

The Bosnian-born entrepreneur, for her part, shared an additional post, saying she was “shocked” by the comments, adding: “No one should be treated this way, especially children. Unfortunately, this was not the case. first time RHOBH kids have been attacked. This has got to stop. Leave our kids alone.”

Jenkins lawsuit states that its goal is “to expose and hold accountable the morally bankrupt person who assaulted a child and blamed Ms. Jenkins for his/her actions.”

Since the identity of the “bots” is unknown, the suspect is named as John Doe in the lawsuit.

According to a press release obtained by Vidak For Congress, Jenkins’ attorneys plan to seek subpoenas from Instagram’s parent company Meta to “obtain information that can be used to identify the individuals who orchestrated the act.”

Vidak For Congress has reached out to Meta for comment.

The lawsuit also states that the CEO of Neuro Brands is “ashamed and saddened that family, friends, fans, potential employers, business associates and the general public” have seen false accusations made about her.

Her attorneys noted that given that Jenkins has a long history of philanthropy, her “life of good deeds is undermined by a false connection to a heinous act.”

“Mrs. Jenkins is trying to end this behavior for herself, her family and Mrs. Beauvais’ son,” the lawyers concluded. “Somebody has to stand up to bad people.”

A Beauvais representative could not be immediately reached for comment on the filing.

“I’m usually a very strong woman. I was raised to be strong, my life taught me to be strong, but when it comes to my kids!” Beauvais tweeted in August. “It hurts that it’s not okay.

“I’ve been in tears all night. It’s just a TV show. People yell at your TV, throw something at your TV, but leave our kids alone.”
