Back in June, it was revealed that one of the men competing for Rachel Lindsay's heart, Lee Garrett, had tweeted a string of racist and sexist remarks throughout 2015 and 2016. He has a documented history as a liar - he finally admitted that the "Kenny tried to pull me out of a van" story he told Rachel was made up. One question is why ABC cast him in the first place, let alone this season, which features the franchise's first black star, Rachel Lindsay. Both DeMario and Lee have been at the center of controversy after the season filmed - DeMario was involved in a murky interaction with Corinne Olympios resulting in the suspension of Bachelor in Paradise, and Lee's past racist tweets resurfaced shortly after the season began airing. "It's not that I'm desperate to get rid of it, I just think that it's a bit chauvinistic to expect a woman to take the husband's last name", he explained. As the suitors call him out, Chris Harrison decides he'd like to provide clarity to the viewers and reads three insanely offensive tweets that Lee sent out suggesting proof that he's a racist misogynist. According to her, they'd been in a relationship until he was casted and when he learned he was on the show, ghosted her. DeMario drops lines about Beyonce, Rihanna and The Weeknd and basically he's everyone I hate for using song lyrics to caption their Instagram photos.
The audience cheered after DeMario told Lee, "I want to sit you down and give you f***ing history 101!" But I feel like I'm in such a unique position, I have the opportunity to be a spokesperson for African-Americans, for women. I'm not going to describe them here, because bloopers really need to be witnessed. "I feel like America didn't get to see their true worth, because they're such awesome guys", she confessed. Maybe Lee thinks of himself as a conservative internet troll who exaggerates and says outrageous things because he likes that they make liberals angry, not because he totally believes them. It's a brutal watch that's mostly guilt with little pleasure and the only way I see fit to digest what went down in the episode is to rank five of these clowns from simply awful to all-out garbage monsters.
That being said, Chris Harrison got some solid time to shine (AKA screen time), which is more than I can say for most of these randos, which included... You can boo me.
Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard removed from the App Store
Those are impressive results for an app that launched initially on Android in 2010 and arrived on iOS less than two years ago. Word Flow's most striking feature was the optional curved keyboard called Arc, meant for easier use when typing one-handed.
Did any of those heavy conversations while filming ever make you feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed?
Lee: I did things that were wrong. Lee's response: "I don't like racism at all". "I wanted to see what she had for us".
The Bachelorette has made mistakes around race this season - namely having Lee on at all - but this was handled well, largely because the show turned the reins over to Anthony and Will and Josiah and Kenny and Rachel at the end, who all knew how to handle the situation.
