The Bachelor Matt James Makes A Powerful Statement

In a powerful statement posted on his Instagram account on Monday evening, Bachelor Matt James stated unequivocally that “The Bachelor franchise has fallen short” when it comes to its handling of race. After host Chris Harrison defended a contestant who had a troubling history of racist behavior on “Extra,” James said the current moment of reckoning for the franchise “has also pushed me to reevaluate and process what my experience on The Bachelor represents.”

Essentially the statement says that he was finding details in real time and after finding out details it seems like Matt has decideded to break up with the contestant he ends up with after the show ends.
