The former Bachelorette's role in the Chris Harrison racism controversy that resulted in him stepping aside has led to online harassment, her Higher Learning podcast co-host Van Lathan said on Instagram. "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," he said, adding that people should "get a f*cking life" and are misdirecting their anger at Lindsay, when they should be outraged at Harrison for his defense of Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell. "Leave Rachel the f*ck alone," Lathan captioned his post. "This harassment is going too far. My co host has zero today with the words of a grown a** man who still doesn’t get it. @chrisbharrison are you okay with people getting at Rachel to the point she can’t even exist on IG. Is anyone from the entire 'Bachelor Nation' going to stand up and condemn this harassment of a Black woman? Yo it’s just a f*cking TV SHOW, y’all need to relax for real. I love you RACH. F*ck these people." ALSO: Bachelor Nation stars show their support for Lindsay following her Instagram deactivation.
