Bravo Fires ‘Below Deck Mediterranean’ Star Peter Hunziker For Alleged Racist Posts On Social Media
Peter Hunziker, who stars on the reality TV show Below Deck Mediterranean, has been fired by Bravo for his alleged racist posts on social media. Hunziker joined the show as a deckhand in season five which just premiered earlier this month.
The season has only aired three episodes so far, but Hunziker was already off to a rough start. He was reprimanded by the ship captain Sandy Yawn for referring to his boss as “sweetie” and “sweetheart.”
A Bravo spokesperson said, “Peter Hunziker of Below Deck Mediterranean has been terminated for his racist posts.” The network then released a statement that said, “Bravo and 51 Minds are editing the show to minimize his appearance for subsequent episodes.”
In the wake of George Floyd’s death and the national unrest that has followed, Bravo has already fired a number of its stars from different shows. Last week, Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni were all fired from their roles on Vanderpump Rules. Each was let go due to past racists comments or actions.
