ABC ‘The Bachelorette’ Spoilers: Hannah Brown Wants Reform Following Chris Harrison’s comments
She told her fans on Instagram the following: “I’ve been catching up and reading about everything that’s been going on in Bachelor Nation, and Lord knows, I’ve made mistakes. But I have learned this past year if we wanna move forward, we have to confront where we have fallen short, and it’s so important that we lift up and listen and value and encourage underrepresented voices.”
Hannah continued by saying that the show should take a different angle: “We just have to be better, and while being accountable has helped me evolve so much as a person, I am still not a perfect person. But I do remain committed to the work and am so humbled and truly grateful to be on this journey and can only hope that I encourage others to educate themselves to go on the journey as well.”
But Chris’ comments were not just isolated to Rachael. In fact, he also commented on Hannah’s use of the N-word. Looking back at the controversial interview, Rachel Lindsay said: “He threw in Hannah Brown. Now, we all know how I feel about that situation. Not once, but twice [Harrison] said that we didn’t give Hannah Brown space, we didn’t give her the grace that she needed. Y’all remember Hannah Brown said the N-word, right?
“And then disappeared for two weeks before she formed together a written statement that disappeared on her Story after 24 hours? But I’m supposed to have grace for that when I’m the one who’s offended [by] it. I don’t even need to get into that because we’ve already talked about the weight of that word.”
Hannah at the time, though, apologised immediately. She told her fans: “I don’t want to be ignorant anymore. I don’t want to [be] an ignorant white girl who uses the N-word. If you want to support me, do not defend me. What I did and what I said was indefensible.” It looks like the show has not learnt from its previous errors, but there is still time for change.
