Bachelorette's Becca Kufrin Breaks Silence on Garrett Yrigoyen's Support of Police

Becca Kufrin is breaking her silence on her fiance Garrett Yrigoyen‘s support of the police amid the police brutality protests across the nation after George Floyd‘s murder.

If you missed it, Garrett posted, “With so many friends and family in law enforcement I couldn’t sit back and not support them and the hundreds of thousands of men and women of all races that represent this Thin Blue Line as well. It’s important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line each and every single day for humans of different race and ethnicity, including those who hate them. The Thin Blue Line represents each officer protecting protestors, properties, and businesses while being threatened, attacked, shot, shot at, hit with vehicles, and other forms of brutality. There have been over 300 injured, shot, or killed in just one week. They are suffering the consequences over an act they didn’t commit.”

“Remember when they put on the badge they’re still humans, with raw emotion, the more brutality they face the more on edge they become, they make mistakes, they have compassion, and no matter how terrible they are treated or whatever negative is said to them, they still show up for us when we need them! Remember these men and women who hold this Thin Blue Line; strangers, friends, family, neighbors, or your enemies. They will always be out there protecting us, no matter what!” he added.

Becca responded on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast.

Garrett is my fiancé and I love him and to his core, I believe that he is a good person,” Becca said. “I don’t align with and I don’t agree with” his social media post.

“I don’t think he meant it in a malicious way,” she added. “I do think it was tone-deaf, and it was the wrong time and message and sentiment.”

Rachel Lindsay added on the podcast, “To me, this is what Garrett thinks, this is what Garrett is. He posted a black box. He never said ‘black lives matter.’ He posted fists of every color, which to me is like, ‘Everybody, all lives.’ And then the very next post is the ‘thin blue line’ with a heartfelt, thought-out caption that he said with his chest. And to me, that is what you feel, and that is what you believe. I don’t think Garrett is malicious, but Garrett is what the problem is.”

Rachel just called out The Bachelor franchise for lack of inclusion and diversity.
