Several members of Bachelor Nation have spoken out after Hannah Brown used the n-word during a recent Instagram Live video, and now, her ex Tyler Cameron is making himself heard, too.
After catching wind of the video, Cameron posted an Instagram Story, urging fans to send Brown love rather than hate. "In these moments, you have the opportunity to [bury] someone or lift them up. We need to lift HB up from this," he wrote. "She is learning and growing just like every single one of us. Love rids hate. Hate only makes more hate. Let's learn and lift each other up with love."
That being said, not every member of Bachelor Nation was so forgiving. Former Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay posted a more critical response to Brown's use of racial slur. When sharing an IGTV video, she explained, “My reason for doing this is because I want to educate people on the word and encourage you to hold people accountable. “If you feel offended or you feel wronged, don’t give them a pass, hold them accountable for what they did, and that’s what I did today."
Brown's controversial moment came while she was singing the lyrics to DaBaby's hit song "Rockstar." She issued an apology for the misstep, telling followers, "I owe you all a major apology. There is no excuse and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt I have caused," however many people believe a simple Instagram Story is not enough for her awful actions.
