On Monday, James McCoy Taylor, a veteran of JoJo Fletcher's Bachelorette season, tweeted that he had ABC and The Bachelor producers' blessing to participate in last week's rally that turned into the takeover of the U.S. Capitol. A source tells Yahoo! Entertainment that his comments are untrue. It's unclear if Taylor actually stormed the Capitol or even participated in the rally since he didn't post any photos from Jan. 6. "Big thanks to #TheBachelor family for supporting me during this time... from top to bottom," he tweeted. This morning Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss tweeted: "Whoever that former cast member/idiot jerkoff is that went to Trump’s treasonous rally, got a message for ya... You are officially exiled from #BachelorNation !!!...Thanks all for letting me know. @JamesTaylor_com
shame on you."
