JoJo Fletcher finally broke her silence on Bachelorette contestant Chad Johnson, and fans aren’t the only ones who think he’s a creeper.
Refinery29 reports that the Bachelorette star felt compelled to address Johnson’s actions during the latest episode. As fans will recall, Johnson angrily ripped another contestant’s shirt and then turned around and tried to charm Fletcher a moment later.
Although she admitted that Johnson was right to be angry, she also explained how his outburst actually scared her when she watched it unfold on television.
“When Chad stepped up there, he was angry,” she wrote to People. “And now, watching it back, I understand why. But that doesn’t excuse what happened when they left the stage. Watching it back now, it scares me. I had no idea what was happening backstage with the guys. I do know that violence is never the answer. Putting your hands on someone else is never the way to resolve conflict. And boy was that some conflict.”
Fletcher did attempt to settle things down with the two men after the incident. In the end, she decided to hand her rose to Alex, which only made Chad more upset.
