#TheBachelor Rachael has expressed her regrets, apologies, and what should be enough explanation, as well as her deep love of Matt to include his being Black. His commitment phobia was showing before the controversy. His refusal to forgive is just his excuse to run.
Last thought on this season: BN is extremely problematic and toxic. It is not Matt’s job to educate or forgive Rachael and no one has a right to judge him for ending things. I hate all the crap he’s getting right now, and only hope the show actually learns from this #TheBachelor
@BachelorABC lets talk about #MattJames hypocrisy.He dumps Rachael and is extremely cold to her at the finale yet is still close with HannaB who went to the same type parties and said the N word .he didn’t wash his hands of her did he 🤷♀️!? #TheBachelor #TheBachelorFinale
@BachelorABC The Producers should be ashamed for allowing @EmmanuelAcho to accuse Rachael of racial insensitivity and racial ignorance while she was on stage. That was classless and inhuman. Was a far worse thing than the picture she had taken in college.

And I don’t believe the racism thing is the real reason that Matt broke up with Rachael. I’m pretty sure he’s already banging one of the runners up, and he’s just using the race card as an excuse for being an asshole who’s not ready to commit to anyone. 🥀@BachelorABC
ABC was REALLY going to let Chris Harrison sit there and ask Matt James why he couldn’t give Rachael another chance and grow with her.
Today and every day, thank god for Rachel Lindsay and to the best of Bachelor Nation who stood their ground. #TheBachelor
I feel like there were things Matt wanted to say but couldn’t bc of “political” reasons- Rachael reposting QAnon theories, how she chooses to surround herself with Trumpers, photos she’s liked recently, etc. The political ecosystems ppl CHOOSE to live in matter! #TheBachelor
What Rachael said to not further offend POC: “I’m sorry I hurt you. It must’ve been hard for you.”
What Rachael feels inside: “I wish you loved me enough to stand by me through all of this. I’m in pain too.”

@EmmanuelAcho @mattjames919 Matt's hurt is deep and his reaction to Rachael is revealing that something else was said to him in their private conversation that made him realize who she really is. He seemed disgusted and hurt by her. #TheBachelor
If Rachael was blindsided by Matt breaking up with her and never thought about the pictures being out there once, then how was she not the person she was in 2018? I’m sure she can change but she hadn’t ALREADY changed.

@BachelorABC Rachael is beautiful and she can do much better than Math. He needs Therapy. This was not about black people. it was a fun show that now is changed to black people drama . I am sick and tired of watching this. Let's boycott the Bachlor show if Chris Harrison won't come back.
also the excuse about Rachael being from “the south”... when you grow up in “the south” you’re MORE aware of racism and our racist history ..and you KNOW from a very early age about things like the confederate flag being a dog whistle and symbol for racism. #TheBachelor

I think Matt feels pressured not to be with Rachael since he was on tv and in the spotlight right now, but he’d be with her if this hadn’t been on tv. He seems torn #afterthefinalrose #ATFR #TheBachelorFinale #TheBachelorABC #TheBachelor
*Cancels the date with Rachael to get some clarity on his decision*
Chris right before the final rose: Do you know what you’re going to do?
Matt: No, but I’ll know when I see her
What the hell were you and Neil Lane doing all day that they didn’t air? #TheBachelor
After this season of #TheBachelor I'm done! It is sad how people can demonize someone for past mistakes that they own & apologize for. #ChrisHarrison & #rachaelkirkconnell r still being demonized & all of u doing so act as if u r perfect & none of us r! 🛑 being hypocrits!
I hope Rachael will learn in the future when she ever have another interracial relationship is that she actually understand, have empathy and educate about that person's cultural background and what comes with that and their personal experience.
