Former ‘The Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay, 35, says there was a “racist” contestant during her season of the show.
During a ‘Watch What Happens Live!’ appearance yesterday, Lindsay revealed to host Andy Cohen that her first time experiencing racism was during the show. Lindsay reveals: “From the audience. I definitely experienced it. More so when it came to picking the men, and then at the end, my husband is Colombian, so I got a lot of racism towards the fact that we were in an interracial relationship. Just a lot of nasty messages, trolling.”
She added that the season “did have a racist contestant” who may be contestant Lee Garrett…Garrett was revealed to have written nasty tweets about feminism, Black Lives Matter, and more.
