Bachelorette: Katie Thurston Responds to Rumors That She ‘Took An Edible’
Bachelorette star Katie Thurston is responding to a tweet that she didn’t take very well. Katie, 30, had taken to Twitter on Sunday, August 22 to reveal that she had eaten a THC-infused edible while relaxing to meditation music.
“I just took an edible, laying on the floor of my living room surrounded by responsibilities, all while listening to meditation music on Spotify,” she tweeted, adding, “And how are you?”
Bachelorette: Fans Give Mixed Responses
Her tweet quickly garnered a lot of input from Twitter users, some good, some not so good.
One fan wrote, “You are my person! Edibles, meditation music, zoning out avoiding responsibilities…..sorry Blake, I’d like to steal your girl and be her BFF.”
After a fan asked Katie if she intended to use the word “meditation” she responded, tweeting, “Hahahahah yes but in some ways I guess it’s medication for the mine. Or maybe this edible already hit [sweating, smiling emoji].”
One very judgmental fan tweeted, “C’mon Katie! Be better. You really don’t think stuff through very well,” and still another judgy fan slammed Katie with, “Not a very good role model to the younger viewers of @bachnation.”
But, not one to sit and take it Katie responded snarkily with, “Because I’m consuming a legal drug at a legal age within a legal state?” to which she added a woozy-face emoji.
One fan hilariously tweeted, “Katie in about 10 minutes,” adding a GIF of a woman dancing crazily, mouth wide open to which Katie responded by tweeting, “I said edibles not bath salts” and tacking on a flushed face emoji.
Katie is no stranger to the criticism and, from what we can tell, she has handled it smoothly and without vitriol which is more than can be said for some of her fans.
