Fans, uh, weren’t impressed with Victoria’s interview.
Victoria Larson showed up on Good Morning America to discuss her status as the resident villain on Matt James’ season of The Bachelor—and basically spent her time defending herself.
“Snatching the crown was not my best moment looking back, but I meant it all in good fun,” she said during the segment. When asked if she regrets calling other girls names, she added, “They knew me and knew my heart and knew that I really never have ill intent, so I think they viewed it differently just because they know me.”
“Honestly, it was all in good fun. If my words or actions hurt anyone, I sincerely apologize and I’ll do better and hold myself accountable. I’m not a bully. I'm really not.”
She said she actually anticipated being “well received” by fans and was surprised by the negative reception, saying she doesn’t think her “kindness really got to show through” on the show.
Many Bachelor fans weren’t impressed with Victoria’s quotes about her behavior on the show, accusing her of bullying and toxic onscreen behavior while questioning why she was given a platform over other contestants.
Victoria does nothing but shit on these other women. Endless name calling.

@GMA @BachelorABC I saw the segment on Victoria Larson. In the interview it was said that Victoria called it as she sees it. Victoria displayed inappropriate behavior. She purposely went after other women she knew Matt liked more due to her insecurities.

Victoria from #TheBachelor on GMA saying she never sees herself as a bully and is truly a kind hearted person is a fucking the joke of the week and it’s only Tuesday

@GMA I can't believe you are entertaining Victoria from last night's bachelor. Here's hoping you do NOT glorify this bullying and toxic behavior!

Honestly disappointed in @GMA for giving Victoria air time tomorrow. Don’t give someone who doesn’t understand (or care) how their words and actions affect others publicity. Our 2021 mental health does not deserve this. #bachelorabc #BachelorNation

Drama between Victoria and her fellow contestants aside, she’s also been dealing with some very uncool body-shaming from Matt James' friends and recently issued a pointed response on Instagram.
