Rachel Lindsay Accepts Bachelor Host Chris Harrison’s Apology!
While GMAs Michel Strahan points out that Bachelor Host Chris Harrison’s Apology seemed to be surface, Rachel Lindsay will accept it. Read on to see why Rachel Lindsay accepts Chris Harrison’s Apology…
CelebnReality247.com reports that Rachel Lindsay, who opened up recently about her decision to deactivate her Instagram account is back in the headlines.
As Rachel Lindsay put it, Chris Harrison said he made a “mistake” by defending current Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s past racist actions and issued Rachel Lindsay — and the Black community — an apology on Thursday.
Although. Lindsay spoke with fellow Extra host Billy Bush hours later, Lindsay, 35, said she accepted Harrison’s apology.
I do accept the apology, Billy, and I think it’s important for me to say that because I haven’t really talked about, you know, Chris and the statement because I’m not trying to make this a Chris-versus-Rachel. But the fact that, once again, you know — this isn’t the first time he’s apologized to me — he apologized again on GMA today and I do accept that and I think it’s important for me to say that because we need to move forward.
And for me, for us to move forward, I need to accept the apology, so we can all be better from this situation, which is what we want.
Rachel said she appreciated that Harrison addressed the harassment that she’s been receiving in the wake of their interview.
I wasn’t expecting him, you know to address what’s been going on with me because this is the first time we’ve heard from Chris, but the fact that he did address the harassment and the hate that I’ve been receiving, I really appreciate that.
Lindsay also pointed out Chris leaving The Bachelor was the right move the “right decision.”
He needs to take time to get educated and on a profound and productive level to use his word,” she told Extra. “And I think he needs to understand what was done, what was wrong, and what he said in that interview, and he needs time. He’s stepped away to do that.
