ABC was praised for finally showcasing the first-ever black lead on “The Bachelor” franchise this season, but just two weeks into the historic season of “The Bachelorette,” the network is in hot water for casting a contestant whose alleged racist tweets surfaced online.
Bachelor alum Leah Block was slammed on Monday night for posting a tone deaf tweet about the current season of The Bachelorette.
A student has been praised for her courage after hitting back at a racist Twitter user who said she would be more attractive if 'she was lighter'.
Mimi Mbah, 19, who is from Cameroon and lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland, exposed the man by sharing his tweet with the reply: 'No thanks I wouldn't trade my skin color for the world'.
Though it seems a broadcaster would thoroughly check social media during casting, Garrett’s accounts are private.
Garrett is a 30-year-old singer/songwriter from Nashville, Tenn., who is still in the running on the ABC dating show, vying for “Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay’s heart.
