Chad Johnson is not going quietly. The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise alum may have ended his short-lived stint on ABC’s primetime schedule, but he continues to offend fans of the franchise. After his drunken outburst on the BIP premiere, Chad Johnson went on a rampage on social media. If fans weren’t alienated by Chad’s polarizing personality before, they surely are now.
After explaining that he is a “real person” and sometimes drinks too much, Johnson posted a tweet in which he “joked” about murdering the families of his haters.
Johnson later compared himself to Breaking Bad character, Walter White, if he were to try to look “unmurdery.”
Us Weekly posted a since-deleted tweet by Chad Johnson, in which he mused about what would happen if he murdered someone.
“If I murder someone does that kinda make me capable of hanging out with their dead body? Slightly? I’m so bored,” Johnson reportedly wrote.
Johnson also told Bachelor alums to stop following him on social media. As for anyone who dares to stay on his feeds, Chad offered a warning that they may want to turn off their “offendometer.”
Chad Johnson offended all of his castmates on the Bachelor in Paradise premiere, and his drunken antics got him booted from the show by host Chris Harrison. Johnson made “jokes” about murdering his fellow contestants and ripping off their body parts.
At one point, Chad talked about his Bachelorette nemesis Evan Bass, saying, “I didn’t murder him, so that’s good. I didn’t rip his head off and shove it down his own mouth. Like yeah, I still kind of want to rip his head off and throw it in the water.”
Johnson also threatened to throw his short-term makeout partner, Lace Morris, under a bus and “duct-tie” her up. And then he threatened to off everyone in general.
“I’ll murder everyone here,” Chad ranted. “I’ll kill your children and murder your family. Dolla, dolla bills, yo.”
While his behavior was appalling, Johnson swears it was all in good fun. Chad told Entertainment Tonight that he got his bizarre sense of humor from his late mom, who passed away shortly before he was cast on The Bachelorette.
“My mom was the same way,” Chad told ET.
“We always made messed-up jokes. Me, my mom and my sister always had a terrible sense of humor. …. I kind of played into it. It’s not like I’m actually going to murder somebody on camera.”
Not that he’ll have then chance to anyway. Johnson was kicked off then show by Chris Harrison after his rampage, so his days on then ABC franchise are presumably done. According to E! News, Harrison later said that while he wasn’t afraid for the cast, he didn’t want to allow Chad to ruin then Paradise experience for everyone else.
“I wasn’t really scared for anybody, I don’t think he was going to hurt anybody, although he threatens violence and says horrible things,” Harrison told reporters in June.
“He was taking away from everybody’s chances to actually make this work. He was just a black cloud hanging over everything. He had really been verbally abusive to some of the staff, some of our crew and was rude to me.”
Harrison said Chad added fuel to the fire by acting cocky when he sat him down to address his inappropriate behavior.
“It was a chance for him to be contrite…he was really glib and really arrogant and really pissed me off,” Harrison said.
“In the middle of it, I just made a decision, I’m like, ‘You know what? I’m done. You’re out.’ I see how you’re making everybody feel, now you’ve pissed me off, I’m done. Get out of my house.”
Chris Harrison said he’s not angry with Chad, saying he believes The Bachelorette bad boy’s behavior comes from a deeper place.
“There is a reason he behaves the way he does. I would go so far as to say it comes from some sort of hurt insecurity…there is an issue there.”
For now, Chad Johnson continues to offend. The big question is, when will his Bachelorette 15 minutes end?
