Chris Harrison the host of ABC’s The Bachelor and Bachelorette should be fired! No sympathy for him.
Did Harrison think his apology for having the guts to stand up to a radical woke crowd would be accepted or even wanted? He was wrong.
Harrison found himself in hot water after calling out individuals attacking one of the show’s contestants, Rachael Kirkconnell. Kirkconnell is white and attended a themed Antebellum party when she was in college. Somehow the Antebellum party story surfaced after viewers saw that she was possibly in the running to being picked as a love interest for the show’s first black bachelor, Matt James. No big deal one might think, but the woke race police decided to put the word “Antebellum” on the list of things that should be considered racist.
Harrison appearing on an entertainment show hosted by Rachel Lindsay, who was the first black Bachelorette, tried to make sense of it all. During his appearance, he said he didn’t understand why Kirkconnell was being attacked for attending a party that happened some time ago. He called for compassion and that the woke police was going too far.
To say the least, the woke police weren’t having any of it. They went after Harrison with vengeance and labeled him a racist. Feeling the pressure to be politically correct he stepped down from his hosting duties and resurfaced with an apology to black people for being white and insensitive. Well, one would have thought this would be the end of it, and he would be welcomed back to the fold as a convert of the woke police having denounced being a racist. Unfortunately, he was wrong.
The all too bubbly Lindsay, who appears to have become a social justice police, wasn’t buying his apology and neither was gap-toothed Michael Strahan. Harrison appeared on Good Morning America with Strahan to deliver his mea culpa. It didn’t work.
What is clear though both Lindsay and Strahan are gunning for Harrison’s job as host of The Bachelor/Bachelorette now that he has been socially wounded by the woke race police. What an idiot Harrison is to think an apology would appease the woke race police. After all, he did nothing wrong but try to explain things as he saw them.
Anyone giving into a rabid mob and apologizing for stating his opinion should be ousted.
These people can’t be satisfied. Everything to them is about racism and it offends them if you don’t see it that way. They are offended by history because it’s racist. Offended because Harrison a white man dared to explain a period of history that our first black president, Barack Obama, seemingly recognized and gave respect during his first inauguration by inviting them for an appearance.
There was nothing Harrison could have done to make things right. The racial sensitivity classes he is taking with a coach won’t satisfy this mob. And what the heck is a race sensitivity class anyway? This entire matter is stupid. What Harrison should have done was stood his ground and said screw you all.
