Last season’s controversy began when photos resurfaced of contestant Rachael Kirkconnell attending an “old south” party.

Rachael K. competed to win over Matt James on The Bachelor, while she eventually won the season.

Chris defended the contestant while being interviewed by Rachel Lindsay on Extra, stating: “We all need to have a little grace, a little understanding, a little compassion. Because I’ve seen some stuff online… again, this ‘judge, jury, executioner’ thing where people are just tearing this girl’s life apart.”

Following backlash, Chris stepped down from the show and publicly apologized to Rachel.

While talking to GMA’s Michael Strahan, Chris said: “I am saddened and shocked at how insensitive I was in that interview with Rachel Lindsay. I can’t believe I didn’t speak against antebellum parties, what they stand for.

“I stand against all forms of racism, and I am deeply sorry to Rachel Lindsay and to the Black community.”
