Chris Harrison will remain on racial insensitivity ice as ABC Entertainment and Warner Horizon announced he will not host the upcoming season of “The Bachelorette.”
Instead, the network has tapped two former contestants, Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe, to handle the hosting duties of the show’s next season.
You may recall Chris stepped down from hosting “The Bachelor” in February after he was vehemently caping for “Bachelor” contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, who was exposed for her history of dressing up at Native Americans and attending an antebellum planation-themed ball.
ABC and Warner Horizon expressed their support for Chris Harrison saying:
We support Chris in the work that he is committed to doing. As we continue the dialogue around achieving greater equity and inclusion within ‘The Bachelor’ franchise, we are dedicated to improving the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) representation of our crew.
That’s the politically correct way of saying, “We’ll hold your job for you until the dust settles.”
