Tyler Cameron is now defending his fellow Bachelorette contestant Luke Parker after the recent Men Tell All episode.
Here’s what he wrote on Twitter.
“I can’t help but have respect for anybody who goes on this show and puts themselves out there. You’re immediately placed on the chopping block for the world to come at you.
I have made a lot of jokes about Luke, myself, and other cast members on this show. They were meant to be taken lightheartedly and not seriously.”
Tyler then went on to wish him well.
“Luke, we may not agree nor do we have the same beliefs, but I wish you nothing but success and growth in your future and hope that you achieve all that you want to achieve in this world. No one should be condemned forever.”
Luke appreciated Tyler’s post.
“I want nothing but the best for you to brother! I appreciate this,” Luke replied.
“I truly believe Luke at 30 years old would have handled things a lot differently. We mature and grow so much in our 20’s. I know I’m a different person from the kid I was at 24,” Tyler went on to defend Luke in another tweet.
Connor Saeli also took to social media to defend himself after some fans called him out for ‘bullying’ Luke on Men Tell All.
Here’s what he wrote:
“I want to give everyone some context on what I said to Luke P tonight before they are quick to judge myself and the other guys,” Connor wrote on Instagram.
“What you did not see on tv, is that I was one of the only people to give Luke a chance and at times the only person who would speak to him later on in the season. I gave him words of encouragement before his dates and discussed with him how he was feeling.”
“Week after week some event occurred with Luke that impacted the time everyone had with Hannah, and even though that happened I gave him the benefit of the doubt until it reached a point where I was honestly just over it like everyone else.
It was incredibly frustrating to live through that and watch it back on tv because of how he negatively impacted everyone’s experience, including Hannah’s. Throughout the show I only focused my attention on building my relationship with Hannah and not getting involved with the drama surrounding Luke.”
“I wish I had said what I said in a different way, but I along with all the other guys are 100% allowed to speak our minds. There is a difference between bullying and calling someone out who has been toxic to this entire experience. We all said what we needed to say and have now moved on. Although it may not seem like it, every single guy on the stage tonight supports each other in growing from this experience and becoming the best men we can be.”
