Chris Harrison Had Defended The Past Racist Actions of A Contestant

Chris sparked indignation after he defended past racist actions of a contestant on The Bachelor during an interview with former Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay, on Extra. The contestant was under fire after old photos surfaced of her attending an Old South-themed party with her sorority sisters in college. However, rather than call Rachael out for glorifying a time in history where slavery was prevalent, Chris defended the 24-year-old.

Chris Harrison Took to His Instagram And Posted an Official Apology

Just hours after the interview aired, Chris issued an apology on Instagram. He wrote, “I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful. My ignorance did damage to my friends, colleagues, and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I said and the way I spoke. I set standards for myself and have not met them.”

Rachael Kirkconnell Issued Her Own Apology

She wrote, “At one point I didn’t recognize how offensive and racist my actions were, but that doesn’t excuse them. My age or when it happened doesn’t excuse anything. They are not acceptable or okay in any sense. I was ignorant, but my ignorance was racist.”
