At the time, fellow Bachelor Nation star Rachel Lindsay weighed in on the video and Brown’s language.
Lindsay, the franchise’s only black lead, recorded a lengthy Instagram video addressing the situation. She noted in the video, Brown was conscious not to use the f-word while reciting the lyrics, yet was able to let the n-word fly.
“I hate that I have to do this. I never wanted to speak on this. I never wanted to say anything,” she said. Adding, “I’m honestly tired of feeling like I have to be the one to speak because other people won’t.”
In the end, Lindsay says she reached out to Brown to help educate her on the word.
As we reported, this morning on ‘Good Morning America’ Matt James was announced as this season’s ‘The Bachelor.’
