Should Evelyn Lozada be fired from “Basketball Wives” on VH1? After a recent on-camera incident where she confronted a co-star with a racial epithet folks want Evelyn fired.

Apparently, some fans are upset that she referred to CeCe Gutierrez as “Lee Lee” and have started a petition to get Ev canned from the show.

Evelyn has responded by saying:

“In the heat of a verbal battle things are sometimes said that are hurtful, untrue and totally out of character. It’s not cool – but regrettably it happens. I understand why many are upset by my derogatory, stereotypical reference of another woman of color – and for that I’m so sorry.”

She went on to say:

“I extended a heartfelt apology to my cast mate CeCe Gutierrez a few weeks back in which she graciously accepted. Moving forward….I have to do better.”
