He said, “Going forward, I honestly don’t know how this will all shake out, but for myself for example, if they have future shows and if they were to ask me to be on Bachelor in Paradise or something like that — and I’m sure a lot of other contestants feel this way as well — I wouldn’t feel comfortable if Chris is there, to be quite frank. “[I’m] not saying he can’t make a recovery, can’t learn from all of this, but, you know … it would just be too soon, really.”
He went on to say of Harrison, “I think he needs to take some time really look into himself and really just have a lot of tough conversations and understand why he believes the things he believes at this point in his life.”

Harrison brought up this issue during an interview on Extra with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay. Lindsay was the franchise’s first Black lead and during their conversation, he said people should have, “a little grace, a little understanding, a little compassion” about the controversy.
He then received negative feedback and attention for his remarks; Harrison issued two apologies and said he was leaving the franchise for an indefinite period.
