Becca Kufrin & Garrett Yrigoyen Discuss His Controversial Instagram Likes on 'Bachelorette' Finale

SPOILER ALERT – This post contains spoilers from the season finale of The Bachelorette!

During the reunion part of the finale of The Bachelorette, Garrett Yrigoyen and his new fiancee Becca Kufrin addressed the controversial posts that he liked on Instagram before he went on the show.

“I put out an apology. I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I apologize for that still. I’m very sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings or do anything like that,” Garrett said. “I stand by everything I posted in my apology and I’m just trying to grow as a person and be a better person on a daily basis. She’s helping me through everything. We’ve been honest and open and transparent with one another since the beginning and when all that came out, we attacked it because I feel like, when I was liking things, it was going against what she stands for. And that made it really hard on us as a couple. We got through that and we’re growing, we’re progressing, and we’re moving forward.”

“There have been struggles and that was a major thing that we had to talk about early on in our relationship,” Becca added. “I luckily got to know him for who he is. On the show, we don’t have phones, we don’t have social media, so I got to see who he is, his heart and his soul.”

Becca added, “That Instagram situation, I don’t condone that and I know he stands by his apology and he feels so bad for everyone that he did offend and he didn’t mean it but I just want to move forward and to learn and to grow and to continue to educate ourselves. That’s all you can ask for in another person, is that someone who recognizes that they make a mistake and do something wrong and want to learn and grow from it. And that’s what he showed me.”

Garrett said he was worried that he could lose Becca over the situation, but she knew who he was as a person and that he’s a better person than he presented on social media.

    At no point did he say he did not believe in those opinions. Just that he didn’t mean to harm. Which everyone knows is bs. He’ll revert back to his old self in six months.

    I agree with Plez, he did not say he didn’t believe in those heinous things, just that he was sorry if he hurt anyone by it. He also said it went against everything Becca believes in. It won’t be long before he’ll make a comment about something and she’ll look at him like ‘what just came out of your mouth?” and that’ll be it.

    Becca, sorry you don’t like all of Garrett’s opinions but you guys shoulda figured that stuff out way before you got engaged. Big time incompatibility flag. And Garrett, to let Becca school you like that in public like a disobedient little boy is sad. You need to grow a pair dude and you both need to grow up.

    The sooner the better.

    They’re both entitled to their opinions. The difference is that the progressives are the ones who constantly espouse moral relativism- “right” and “wrong” are just a product of one’s culture or one’s opinion.

    There are no absolute standards of right or wrong for the progressive, so stop assuming the moral high ground just because “you don’t like it”.
