It’s no secret to Real Housewives of Atlanta fans that Kenya Moore and Kim Zolciak can’t stand each other, but one joke from the former beauty queen towards her nemesis has the LGBT community up in arms.

While Moore discusses new hubby Marc Daly with the girls, Zolciak repeatedly says the restaurateur isn’t real because none of Kenya’s friends had ever met him at that point. Moore responded by asking why the reality star was so concerned with her life while joking that Zolciak was born a man who underwent gender reassignment surgery.

“Why do you have such a hard-on for me? Didn’t they cut it off during your reassignment surgery,” Moore quipped.
