These uncomfortable conversations are important to Bachelor Nation, which is experiencing a reckoning, of sorts.
In recent weeks, multiple contestants from past and present have had to address social media posts, which were offensive to various minority groups.
Rachael Kirkconnell, who participated in Matts’ season, was accused of bullying a high school classmate. Additionally, social media users found photos of Rachael at an antebellum plantation themed fraternity event in 2018.
Bachelor Nation’s Rachel Lindsay spoke about the controversy surrounding the 24 year old with Chris, who defended her from being attacked by what he described as the “woke police.”
He also questioned the validity of the criticism Rachael faced over the resurfaced photos, asking, “Well, Rachel is it a good look in 2018? Or, is it not a good look in 2021? Because there’s a big difference.”
