“Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” star Rachel Lindsay has put producers on notice that she’s out of future appearances if they don’t address the shows’ perceived lack of diversity.
Rachel was a contestant on Season 21 of The Bachelor in 2017, then later went on to turn out to be The Bachelorette.
The 35 year old has spoken out in regards to the injustice of George Floyd’s demise, in addition to different victims of police brutality — now says that she’s going to not assist The Bachelor franchise in any respect except actual adjustments in direction of inclusion are made.
In a recent interview with Afterbuzz Tv, Rachel Lindsay says, “I can’t support. I’ve to see some kind of change. It’s ridiculous. It’s embarrassing. At this level, it’s embarrassing to be affiliated with it.”
Some people are also criticizing Rachel about her recent comments on diversity. Some others are respecting Rachel for trying to change the culture in the Bachelor and Bachelorette.

I’m so thankful for @TheRachLindsay for pioneering this movement to end the formula that @BachelorABC has used for over a decade. Now, more than ever, we need to speak up collectively. We’ve seen how speaking out creates actual change. So it begins. #BIPOCBachelor

ABC shared a message of solidarity and acknowledged that they assist Black voices since the death of George Floyd. The question is will they actually make changes about it.
