Chris Harrison said he made a "mistake" by defending current Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell's past racist actions and issued Rachel Lindsay — and the Black community — an apology on Thursday
"It was a mistake," Harrison said. "I made a mistake."
In a preview of his interview on "GMA," Chris Harrison says he "made a mistake" defending Rachael Kirkconnell.
The Georgia native asked that people defending her actions "please stop."
Bachelor Nation had no sympathy for the contestant, whose alleged history of racism recently surfaced.
The former bachelorette told CNN's Don Lemon about her "baffling" interview with the longtime Bachelor host.
The contestant has faced accusations of racism since last month.
"People are just tearing this girl's life apart," Harrison said of Rachael Kirkconnell. "It's unbelievably alarming to watch this."
