Rachel Lindsay Returns To Social Media After Online Trolling
A special announcement everyone, Rachel Lindsay is back on the “gram” like she never left!
The former “Bachelorette” marked her return to social media on Saturday with some inspirational quotes. Her first post after her return is a photo of a sunflower arrangement.
In the caption, she wrote an inspirational quote that read, “I want to be like a sunflower plant so that even on the darkest days, I will stand tall and find the sunlight.” Lindsay had taken a break from social media and deactivated her account over a week ago.
Love And Light
Many of Lindsay’s fellow “Bachelor” franchise alum showed their love and support for her return in the comment section of the post.
Prominent among them was “Happy Hour” co-host Becca Kufrin. Kufrin sent love to Lindsay by writing that she loves her “beautiful, fiery spirit so incredibly much.”
Season 25 “Bachelorette” alum and model Chelsea Vaughn also commented that she was happy to have Lindsay back on the social network. Not finished announcing her return, the attorney shared a clip and photos from her first hiking experience on her Instagram stories.
On The Fence In Times Of Crisis
She captioned the photo with a message saying, “good vibes only,” which may be referencing the situation surrounding her deactivation in the first place.
The 35-year-old’s return to social media comes after “Bachelorette” alum Andi Dorfman blasted the “ABC” series producer for letting the current racism controversy slide without addressing it.
In a chat with Entertainment Tonight on Friday, Dorfman shared her opinions on why the show’s producers mishandled the situation. She shared that despite the cast and contestants of the “ABC” show coming together to support one another on social media, the franchise is holding back its support because they are scared.
What Set The Ball Rolling?
In a backstory, Lindsay deleted her Instagram account weeks after her “Extra” interview with Chris Harrison. During the interview, Harrison defended contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s previous racist action.
After Lindsay called out Harrison for his remarks, she faced tons of online harassment. Van Lathan reported that the “Ghosted: Love Gone Missing” host decided to take a break from social media after internet trolls were spamming her with hateful and rude remarks.
Earlier in the week, Lindsay spoke about her break from the “Higher Learning” podcast.
Taking A Break From Hate
The former attorney shared that she needed some reprieve from all the negativity she was getting. She also shared that she woke up one morning to all the negativity on her social platform and decided to do away with it.
Lindsay continued that it was the best decision for her as she detached from all the hate and felt much better for it.
For his part, Harrison has issued a public apology to Lindsay via a Thursday episode of “Good Morning America.” He also pleaded with his followers to stop “throwing hate” at former “Bachelorette.”
