Kaitlyn Bristowe SLAMS Bachelor Producers For Choosing Zach as Lead & Erich’s Finale

Kaitlyn Bristowe is not the one to hold back and she’s speaking out once again.

The former Bachelorette wasn’t happy with the producers after the finale and she’s making the world know.

In an Instagram post, she wrote her concern over the new lead.

“Nobody asked for Zach as the next Bachelor,” Kaitlyn said on her Instagram story.

“Zach is absolutely wonderful and sweet and kind. I also want him to find love. I just think they had so many options for the Bachelor and should let the voting system pick who America wanted.” she wrote. “With that being said, I’m already having empathy for Zach, knowing this will be extremely overwhelming for him and will always be here if he needs my help.”

She then went on to slam the Bachelor producers for not speaking about Erich’s blackface controversy.

“The show, Erich, and Gabby, had a real opportunity to use their voice and acknowledge blackface,” Kaitlyn continued in her post. “I don’t think we needed to read texts from his ex, or set up a fake mansion for Zach. I think we needed to continue to evolve and show up with that many people watching. Michelle, myself, and Becca [Kufrin] were all under the impression this would be addressed. It wasn’t and that’s not OK.”

“Am I happy for them being happy? 10000%. I’m always rooting for love. I hope we hear more from them on this.”

“This show has given me so much. I am so grateful, yet I still want to hold people accountable. Please bachelor nation, listen to voices that need to be heard. That deserve to be heard. I don’t want to speak for Michelle, but I know she committed to being the lead with a promise of change. To brush over black face, and act as if we didn’t have time? What message does that send? Didn’t Rachel Lindsay already show us how important this is?”

Meanwhile, Erich has apologised for his blackface photo on Instagram.

“I wholeheartedly apologize for the insensitive photo of me in Blackface from my high school yearbook that has been circulating,” he wrote via Instagram at the time. “What I thought at the time was a representation of my love for Jimi Hendrix, was nothing but ignorance. I was naïve to the hurtful implications of my actions to the Black community and those closest to me, and will forever regret my offensive and damaging behavior. I am deeply ashamed by my actions and understand that my apology is only the first step in taking accountability.”
