“I see the criticism,” Underwood said on the Call Her Daddy podcast. “I know that people are upset that I have white privilege and I got a series after coming out.” Asked if he was using his Netflix reality show to erase the controversies in his past, Underwood said: “I would say there was a lot that went into that version of myself. And since coming out, I in no way, shape or form am trying to make people look the other way or forget about anything. I will own my mistakes and I will own who I was at that time in my life. … Me doing this show was never to flip the page or start a new chapter. It was for me to say and to show, like, ‘I f*cked up, I made mistakes.'” ALSO: Tayshia Adams accuses Underwood of making up an "elaborate" story of their Bachelor fantasy date for Coming Out Colton.
