She also said she and Chris have not spoken directly since his interview on Good Morning America, but she watched it. She also said they spoke about three weeks ago, and he apologized directly then too.

If you didn’t know, during an interview with Rachel Lindsay, he said that the “woke police” was out to get contestant Rachael Kirkconnell against claims that she had been racist in her past behavior, and that there is a difference in how one behaves in 2018 vs. in 2021.

“I am saddened and shocked at how insensitive I was in that interview with Rachel Lindsay. I can’t believe I didn’t speak against antebellum parties, what they stand for. I didn’t say it then and I want to say it now: those parties are not OK, past, present, future. And I didn’t speak from my heart. And that is to say that I stand against all forms of racism, and I am deeply sorry to Rachel Lindsay and to the Black community,” he said. Find out what else he said in the apology.
