    ‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay is ‘extremely disappointed’ with Hannah Brown’s apology for using the N-word

    Rachel Lindsay is setting the record straight on numerous conversations that she had with fellow Bachelor Nation star Hannah Brown after the Season 15 Bachelorette was caught using the N-word during an Instagram Live. Now, Lindsay explains why Brown’s apology was “extremely disappointing.”

    It all began on May 16 when Brown, the 2018 Miss Alabama titleholder, was singing DaBaby’s “Rockstar” while live streaming to her 2.8 million Instagram followers when she used the racial slur and attempted to pass the blame onto her brother. The following afternoon, she posted an apology to her Instagram story, where she wrote, “I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better.” That same day, Lindsay, a fellow Bachelorette and the only black woman to lead the show, took to her own platform to discuss why Brown was wrong to use the word and even to critique the way that Brown apologized.

    “When you’re bold enough to say the N-word on camera, on your platform … then you need to be bold enough to use your face on camera and apologize in the same way that you said the word,” Lindsay said to her own 889,000 followers in a video on May 17 that has since been saved to her IGTV. In an episode of former Bachelor Nick Viall’s podcast, Viall Files, which was released on Monday, Lindsay explained her response.

    “I didn’t have a conversation, I had multiple conversations, over the phone, text and direct messages,” Lindsay said of her communication with Brown after the incident over a week prior. “When Hannah and I talked, she wanted to know what my thought was as to what she should do, she said, I wanna ask you. And she was very remorseful, she was very upset, she was embarrassed, she was admitting she was wrong. And she said she wanted to go on a [Instagram] Live and she was going to go first and then bring me on. Twice, she got off the phone with me to tell me, ‘I’m gonna go do it, I’m just gonna go get ready.’ Hours later, nothing.”
