‘Bachelor’ star in hot Water Over Confederate Flag Photo

Another member of the “Bachelor” nation made headlines this week when one of her past social media posts came back to haunt her.   

Just days after longtime host Chris Harrison announced he was taking leave from the show after “perpetuating racism” by encouraging “compassion” and “understanding” for a female contestant who attended an Old South party in 2018, Demi Burnett, who appeared on both franchise originator the “Bachelor” and spin-off series “Bachelor in Paradise,” came under fire when a photo of her wearing a green jacket adorned with the Confederate flag resurfaced online.  

Burnett addressed the photo in a two part video apology on Twitter, mentioning that it was made by rapper Kanye West’s Yeezy brand, which she believed was cool during its 2013 product release.  

“So there’s this picture that’s been resurfaced of me wearing a jacket with a Confederate flag on it. That jacket was given to me by my ex. His dad actually gave it to me. I had no idea the weight that the Confederate flag held whenever I was wearing it. I just wore it for that one night,” she began.  

She went on to claim she wore the symbol out of ignorance and was “embarrassed” by her actions.  

“I didn’t even pay attention to that. That’s ignorance. That’s ignorant of me not to pay attention to the Confederate flag. Even more ignorant of me to not even know how harmful that is to people. So, like yeah, I royally f—ed up wearing that. I am so f—ing sorry.” Burnett remarked. “I’m disgusted with myself. I’m embarrassed. It doesn’t even matter how I feel, I’m just so f—ing sorry because that is not what I stand for, that is not what I’m about and I’m really mad that I wore it.”

In a follow-up video, she heavily laid on the self-flagellation. “I’ve been an ignorant, self-absorbed sack of s— for most of my life, so I genuinely had no idea what I was representing by wearing that jacket. I have no excuses other than ignorance, self-absorbed sack of s—,” She spat out. “Disgusted with myself, I suck for that. I suck very badly for that.” 

“I know better now, did not know better then. What I can say now is be better than me, don’t look up to me. Look up to being better than me because I f—ing suck and I really f—ing hate myself for being ignorant,” She urged followers. “This is the time to change the world and make it better and I made it worse. So, I’m really, really sorry.”

Wallow in self-pity and disgust as those you “Think” you offended are Laughing their A$$e$ off watching you Wriggle and Writhe at your Horrible, Unforgivable, Disgraceful, Racist Display of a Historical Artifact that is so Hurtful to Look at Many People have had to make appointments with Therapists for “Treatment” to help them deal with your Blatant “In Your Face” display of this Racist Item! just Kiddin, I don’t think anyone except maybe a few S.J.W.’s took offense to your display since you don’t harbor any “Racist ” thoughts and or actions, You just weren’t aware or “Woke” enough to realize you were screwing with someones brain waves or dredging up some awful historical event that cost so many lives attempting to garner “Freedom” for those folks who desperately needed it whether they knew it or not!

Hey babe the flag is NOT racist…..This is MSM telling you that it is. You obviously have a lot to learn. Oh and by the way a lot of Northern blacks owned slaves. So how do you square reparations?
