‘The Bachelor’ Spoilers: Jordan Kimball And Jaclyn Swartz Back Chris Harrison Following Scandal
In a post to his fans on Twitter, Jordan attacked the so-called cancel culture in light of Chris’ decision to step down from his hosting role on The Bachelor. He said: “Cancel culture attacks and allows zero forgiveness, let’s bring God back into our culture. God Forgives. You are not above GOD. If Chris Harrison is removed for good, I’m going to raise absolute hell.”
Jordan then attacked those who suggested that Chris needed to be educated on such issues. Rather, he questioned people’s lack of empathy and understanding for the human condition, which does involve making mistakes. He added: “Educate yourself on something called the human condition. We are not perfect, none of us. So stop condescendingly telling ppl to educate themselves.
“Simply put, Chris can keep his job, and Rachel can have support. Cancelling Chris doesn’t really count as support for anyone. Get some more clout before you come at me. And the show’s other star, Jaclyn, has also defended Chris for taking a step back from it all. She said: “I think [Chris] taking a step back is definitely the right thing he should be doing.
“I think that he’s so closely tied to the show, and he’s an executive producer that [he] kind of just brushed it off. Like, he would take a quick step back, but that he would absolutely be returning for, like, Paradise or the following seasons.”
She then revealed why Chris sought to defend Rachael Kirkconnell, which may not have been evident to the viewers. And her answer was quite telling. She continued: “I think the reason why they’re being so sensitive about it, and I honestly think the reason why Chris was defending it is because she must be one of the finalists. She must be the one that matches this, and that’s why they’re trying to protect her, but in doing so, they’ve really alienated a lot of their audience.”
With people continuing to be divided on this issue, it does not look like the conversation will be slowing down anytime soon.
