Thurston was accused of queer-baiting after she posted a photo of her kissing fellow Bachelor contestant Casandra Suarez. “To my followers: I’ve removed my most recent post after realizing how many people from the LGBTQ+ (community) I hurt,” Thurston wrote on her Instagram Stories in response to the backlash. “I am so sorry. I’ve read the comments and better understand why my post was offensive. I will continue to learn from my mistakes. I want to always be an ally and today I’m sorry I let you down."
