Nick Viall Slams Hannah Brown's Apology Over Using Derogatory Term

Former The Bachelor star Nick Viall is slamming The Bachelorette‘s Hannah Brown for her apology over using a derogatory term during an Instagram Live.

“Listen, Hannah Brown has a massive platform. She has been very outspoken about her desire to be a role model specifically to young women out there. She has talked about it a lot. ‘When I was a young girl, this. When I was a young girl, that.’ And quite frankly, her going on Instagram Live—whether she was inebriated or not—and using that word in any context whatsoever is not being a role model,” Nick said on his podcast (via E! News). “Certainly not a good one. And she has to be held to a high standard. We all do. And it is very disappointing to see. Honestly, her initial response was disappointing.”

Nick continued, “She has since posted a written apology on her Instagram Stories that is set to expire. As Rachel said on her Instagram Live, that doesn’t read as sincere. We don’t know whether that came from her heart or if it came from her publicist,” he shared. “The only authentic reaction right now, as it stands as this Monday morning, is what she just said on her Instagram Live. Frankly, that’s a really, really terrible apology and really insincere and it comes across as, again, ignorant to what she’s speaking on.”

Hannah used the word while singing DaBaby‘s song “Rockstar.” Find out what her ex Tyler Cameron thinks of the controversy.
