Rachael Kirkconnell Father: On Monday, February 22nd the controversial Bachelor’s family will see Matt James in the Bachelor episode as Rachael Kirkconnell continues making headlines. After the premiere of season 25 on January 4, a 24-year-old graphic designer was fired when a TikTok user accused her of being racist in high school. Screenshots of Instagram photos that Rachael “liked,” featuring her friends who later appeared in social media in front of the Confederate flags.
The mother of Rachael was defending her daughter at that time via her Instagram account, which has already since been deleted, according to Reddit users. “The Confederate flag is against us. It’s only incomprehensible, I don’t understand, how you could say that her or anybody in her family agree on the Confederate flag, because it “liked” a picture of her friend.”
“The ‘like’ had nothing to do with the Confederate flag’s pleasure. We are not of any kind in favor of racism. It’s 100% mistaken. All people should receive fair and dignified treatment, love, and kindness. Matt warned the bachelor nation previously that “rumors are dark and bland, and that people can destroy their lives” and on February 2 he told Entertainment Tonight that he hoped Rachael would “have time to talk.”
