Over the weekend, Chris Harrison announced that he is temporarily stepping down as the host of "The Bachelor" following his controversial interview with Rachel Lindsay earlier this week. Several Bachelor Nation stars spoke out amid the scandal, some even calling for Harrison’s firing. Taylor Nolan, who appeared on season 21 of "The Bachelor," started an online petition to get the host removed from his position. More than 30,000 people signed it. Bryan Abasolo also defended his wife Rachel Lindsay following her Chris Harrison interview which created the controversy. In a recent podcast, he said that it was tough to see this happen after the franchise seemingly began making changes by casting James, 29, as the first Black Bachelor. But what upset him the most was when Chris asked Lindsay “Who are you?” to decide when Rachael Kirkconnell should apologize. “It didn’t feel good watching my wife sit up there and get disrespected like that,” Abasolo said. “I’ll tell you who she is, Chris. She’s Rachel bleeping Lindsay. A strong Black woman, a pioneer in this franchise, the realist Bachelorette who tells it like it is and quite frankly, the best thing to ever happen to this franchise. That’s who she is. So that’s what I have to say about that. That’s what upset me the most.” No word on when Harrison will return to the show, but it won't be for the end of this season when they have the live shows. Will he be back for the next season of the Bachelorette? We'll have to wait to find out.
