Now former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Hazel-E recently got canned. She wants to make it clear that it was because she went on a homophobic rant, and not anything else.

Okay.

Reports TMZ:

Sources connected to Hazel-E tell TMZ … she got a letter delivered by FedEx on Saturday, informing her the show wasn’t picking up an option on her contract. The letter was sent on Friday, October 20 — that’s 16 days AFTER producers say they decided to drop her.

The letter was sent one day after her homophobic comment — saying all gays should burn in hell — earned her swift Internet backlash. We’re told Hazel thinks the timing makes it obvious she was only cut due to the Instagram post.

We contacted ‘L&HH’ producers about Hazel’s letter, and they’re standing by their initial statement — they decided to can Hazel on Oct. 4. Point, blank, period.

And there you have it. The struggle is timely.
