If he has confessed, he can't be burned at the stake, I think. But his properties  can be confiscated. And he should wear a yellow sackcloth with one eyehole over his head in his way to the pillory in order to be whipped.
Yes, he was twenty-something when he made those bad jokes and this will seriously affect his career. But being a mindless young man looking for attention is no excuse for black humour. And sins never expire.

Im surprised the network did not do a deep social media background check on him before he was hired. He has only been on the show since 2017 and such a thing was not unheard of then.

MTV (1 from The Challenge) and Bravo (4 from Vanderpump Rules) have also fired people for past racist comments and actions.

However, the one fired from The Challenge was fired for something they did last week, not years ago. Sadly, its not the first time someone has been fired for racism, and that person was fired in 2017 and hasn't been seen since. 

Two of the people fired from Vanderpump Rules are no big loss, because they were new and despised by most fans to begin with. But the other two have been on the show since the beginning, and it was a shocker. The situation they were fired for would have been sketchy at best if both hadn't already admitted to it. 

(I won't be surprised if the two original VR cast members are eventually back on the show, but the two new ones and the one from The Challenge are most likely done.)
