‘Bachelor’ host Chris Harrison has now announced that he will not be returning to his duties on the long-running show after being engulfed in a recent racism controversy.

As The New York Post reports:

The longtime host of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” is not coming back to the popular reality franchise, as was confirmed by him on social media Tuesday.

“I’ve had a truly incredible run as host of The Bachelor franchise and now I’m excited to start a new chapter,” wrote Harrison, who hosted the ABC series and spinoffs since 2002.

“I’m so grateful to Bachelor Nation for all of the memories we’ve made together,” he continued. “While my two-decade journey is wrapping up, the friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime.”

Harrison reportedly received an eight-figure settlement and is stifled by a confidentiality agreement, according to Deadline.

Harrison was engulfed in controversy in February when he tried to defend a former contestant who had formerly attended a Southern-themed party.

I feel the same way. Too much wokeness to enjoy. I am a southern woman and wore clothes like that to many parties. It was sign of the times. No undertone feelings. I will never feel ashamed to be southern.

So there are plenty of blacks who made it out of some city areas that are mostly black people.They became athletes , singers, or celebrities.Tell me if you have ever heard of 1 losing their job for a racist remark they made long ago.Guess no black said racist things.You can sell me a bridge now.Give me a break digging up trash on whites to destroy their lives.

Your so right. Just like BLM they bitch and complain only when a policeman is involved with a black offender.. otherwise you don’t hear a peep from them. Little black child shot in New York.. not one word from the BLM I guess he’s not news worthy. What a joke

What is “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette”? Who really watches that crap? The name alone shows it is for lonely people.

This should concern us all. The cancel culture is real and on it’s way to your state, neighborhood and company.
This is ALL WRONG IN A MILLION WAYS.

Typical woke B.S. Do they really think that they have the only opinion that counts? They need to get all the true information they try and rein a person. GROWUP and get a grip on reality. Good for you Chris. May you have great success. (A completely P.O.’ED passed viewer)

That’s one show I’ve given up for good. Very soon they will be having the gay and lesbo show. It’s just a matter of time.
Sorry, no will do. Chris should of been a big boy and stuck with his convictions.
Ahhh, Hollyweird.
