Kaitlyn Bristowe Reacts To ‘The Bachelorette’ Men Tell All Special, Talks Online Slut-Shaming

The latest episode of The Bachelorette saw Kaitlyn Bristowe come face to face with all the guys she has turned away so far on the show. With that in mind, some of her interactions went well, particularly with the men who departed on civil terms, but others didn’t take it so well.

“It’s about to get real. Real weird,” Bristowe tweeted before the episode, titled Men Tell All, aired.

Although things got a little strained with Kupah, Bristowe did manage to work things out with Ian, who apologized to her on one knee. “Apologies go a long way with me,” she wrote on Twitter. “Weirdest apology ever but I like it.”

At the same time, Bristowe shared some tough words for Kupah. “Kupah I also think you didn’t handle yourself the best… Did you see your exit?” she wrote, adding “Kupah… You wanted to bring someone else as the bachelorette to find a trophy wife… Why do you care what I was looking for?”

One of the more emotional parts of the episode was when Chris Harrison decided to revisit various hate-filled messages fans had posted on Twitter about Bristowe and the show. “ALOT of love pouring in right now which is a nice change,” she wrote in reaction to Harrison’s readings. “I’m all for opinions and chirps, but the kind of hate I’ve been getting is sick.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe has been one of the more controversial stars on The Bachelorette, in large part due to her sexuality. Bristowe, unlike some of the past bachelorettes, wasn’t afraid to openly make out with the men on the show and even slept with a couple of them. Even some of the men on the show were outspoken about her activities.

However, Bristowe received most of the hate online from fans who just couldn’t take what she was doing. “We’ve always had a fair amount of controversy, especially around issues of appropriate behavior, gender roles, what should and shouldn’t be shown on television,” Harrison stated during the episode. “These have always been issues that we’ve embraced here on The Bachelor.

“What you’re dealing with is something completely different,” Harrison went on to tell Bristowe.

“I’m so fine with people disagreeing with me or having their opinions — that’s OK,” Bristowe stated in return. “The hardest part is it affects my family. I like to think that it doesn’t matter what people think about me, but when it’s thousands and thousands [of comments] just pouring in of people hating … I get death threats.”

“Could you imagine if I read mean tweets on @jimmykimmel about myself? Bleep central,” she tweeted after the show.

Watch Kaitlyn Bristowe choose her man when the season finale of The Bachelorette airs Monday, July 27.
