Reality star Brandi Glanville has apologized for taking a controversial photo with a nativity scene that caused outrage on social media. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum posed for a photo in a San Diego nativity scene where she is crouching over Jesus as if she just gave birth to him. Apparently the joke did not fly with her Christian social media following.

“Never forget the reason for the season,” she wrote under the Facebook picture, which she posted on Friday. She has since deleted the photo, but the internet never forgets. So here it is, thanks to the Daily Mail:

The photo immediately wracked up hundreds of comments and people were pissed. "Wow, just wow!! You managed to offend practically everyone with this post. Are you stupid or something?" wrote one commenter, who didn't mince their words.

Another weighed in:​ "I liked you but this is definitely not appropriate and vile. In poor taste and offensive. Go to Church! Get some manners and money can't buy you class! Disgusting!" A third called the photo "vile" and "offensive."

Ooooooh boy. Glanville, 44, responded on Twitter, first with a passive aggressive non-apology (lest we forget she's a Real Housewife):

But then she must have come around (talked to her PR rep), because she decided to apologize, kind of, by insisting that God already forgave her:

She did not clarify how she knows that God forgave her, but apparently she has insider info. Then today, she returned to Twitter, this time creeping very close to an actual apology:

I think it's time we forgave Brandi Glanville. She may not be the mother of Jesus, but she has connections to the (way) higher ups and can confirm that God gave her a free pass this time around.
