from the franchise for “a period of time,” causing some “Bachelor” fans to direct hateful comments toward Lindsay.On Friday, Lindsay’s “Higher Learning” podcast co-host Van Lathan released an Instagram clip confirming that Lindsay has deactivated her account and condemning the attacks.
“My co-host on ‘Higher Learning,’ Rachel Lindsay, disabled her Instagram earlier today,” Lathan said. “She did it because that’s how much hate she’s getting from Bachelor fans, who are spamming her with all kinds of rude, hateful things to say.”In his video, Lathan said that people should “get a fucking life” and are misdirecting their anger at Lindsay, when they should be outraged at Harrison for his defense of Kirkconnell.

It’s not her job to make excuses or provide cover for somebody who doesn’t understand what the fuck triggers people in today’s world.” headtopics.com
