Rachel Lindsay: If Becca Kufrin Picks Garrett, She Owes The World an Apology!!

If you follow The Bachelorette Spoilers, you already know who Becca Kufrin picks. If not … you must be on the edge of your seat with worry.

Major concerns are that Becca will choose Garrett Yrigoyen, whose bigoted social media history was exposed … but after the finale was filmed.

Well, Rachel Lindsay is no stranger to being Bachelorette or to having a bigoted suitor. And she has some advice for Becca if Garrett is her man.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay has advice for Becca — if she should choose Garrett as her fiance.

“I want to hear more than just an apology,” Rachel says, speaking for a large swathe of the Bachelor Nation.

Garrett apologized for his hateful posts, but a lot of fans felt that he was just sorry that he was caught.

Rachel explains that an apology isn’t enough: “I want to hear an explanation.”

If Becca does choose Garrett — who was one to watch from the first day and who has now made it to the very end — Becca won’t want this cloud hanging over her engagement.

“They have to talk about it,” Rachel advises.

Rachel talks about why Becca, in particular, will need to explain why she’s engaged to Garrett — especially after Becca defended Garrett.

“Becca’s a liberal,” Rachel points out. “And the things he was liking were very conservative, far right.”

Rachel thinks better of her words and corrects her characterization of the content that Garrett was enjoying on Instagram.

Rachel adds that it was “more than conservative [and] a little offensive.”

As multiple bloggers commented when it first broke the news, the material that Garrett seemed to love so much transcended party lines.

“So,” Rachel says. “I think they need to address it now.”

You don’t want this kind of thing to follow you to your wedding day. Assuming that Becca makes it that far with whichever new man she chooses.

Rachel says that Becca should step up “and have a game plan of how they’re going to face the media.”

“People will read through the BS,” Rachel warns.

So she cautions them: “Don’t try to cover it up and put a Band-Aid on it.”

“Just say what you did, why you did it,” Rachel advises. “People will forgive you.”

Rachel even delves into how she would address the situation if Bryan Abasolo had been exposed as a bigot.

“[I would handle it] probably the same way I did with Lee,” Rachel says.

Lee was, of course, a contestant on her season. She was the franchise’s first-ever black Bachelorette, and Lee … well, Lee was racist.

“I addressed it,” Rachel reminds the world. “I said, ‘If you need a history lesson, I can give you one backstage.’ That’s how I would deal with it.”

Of course, Lee absolutely did not make it to the end of Rachel’s season. Garrett is another story.

Rachel says that, if she were in Becca’s shos, “I would have to address it head-on and I’d be pretty tough about it.”

People had a lot of concerns about Rachel Lindsay’s own choice last year.

As you may recall, she picked Bryan Abasolo, whom many people perceived as a liar who would say whatever she wanted to hear, over Peter Kraus.

But Rachel and Bryan are still together and seem happy. Sometimes, people do know what’s best for themselves.

Perhaps Becca sees something in Garrett that the rest of us, who have known for quite a while what sort of man he is beneath the surface, do not.

But … regardless, they’re going to need to face this head-on.

Kendra Wilkinson Picks Cotton, Gets Accused of Racism

Kendra Wilkinson is the outspoken star of We TV’s Kendra on Top

We say outspoken because, well, she has no filter. Whether she’s posting a sultry selfie on social media, or just appearing on her reality TV show, she’s always stirring up some sort of controversy. 

We’re not even sure she knows she’s doing it, and that’s likely why she’s such a draw with viewers. 

The 32-year-old was on a road trip with her husband, Hank Bassett, and thought it would be fun to stop by a cotton field in Texas because “she always wanted to pick cotton.”

Have a look at the picture in question below. It shows Wilkinson posing with some cotton and a whole field of cotton behind her. 

People took offense to the post and immediately started slamming the star in the comments section of the snap. 

“Racist piece of s–t,” one user wrote. Added another: “People are upset because you are joking about history that you are just simply ignorant about. Some things just keep to yourself.”

While some chose to go on the offensive, the star’s legion of fans also came to her defense. 

“Been watching Kendra from day one, she’s a free spirit,” one fan commented. “You are just combing through social media praying for anything to pound on and rip it to shreds… Hello her husband and children are part black.”

“Don’t give the haters the benefit of explaining what ur doing like picking cotton,” said another. 

One final fan wanted the haters to disappear: “Keep your head up. Ignore the ignorance. I have always liked you and your real fans know you are not a racist and you love everyone equally. Live! Laugh! Love!”

The hatred did not go unnoticed by Kendra who returned to social media to clap back at the people assassinating her character. 

“Lol. I just wanted to pick cotton from a plant cuz I’ve always wondered how it really felt. Never in my life thought of color or race at the time,” she wrote on Wednesday.

“I was trespassing n ran up to grab some cotton. I am not racist. Was just having fun n wanted to feel n wondered how it felt. Hahahahah. I can’t believe I’m getting accused of being racist when I’m sitting here with my black father in law rt now baffled at the accusations.

“F–k off to anyone who don’t know me n know what I’m about. Just cuz I picked some f–king cotton. It’s a f–king plant. Omg I can’t.”

Like we said, Kendra is not afraid to hit back at people throwing shade her way. The star was very likely on the trip why she recovered from a mysterious hospital visit. And, no, it had nothing to do with handjobs this time around … we hope. 

The star has been acting in Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man, and disaster struck when some of the shows had to be canceled after she found herself in hospital.

“Super sick. Going to have to cancel the late show tonight. My heart couldn’t cancel both. Sorry late show,” she said at the time.

“Sooooo sorry guys gotta cancel both shows tonight. Going to ER. Hurtin bad. I’ll make it up to you.”

What do you think about all of this?!

Sound off below.
