Rachel Lindsay is speaking out after the interview she held with "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison, where they discussed contestant Rachael Kirkconnell.
"I’m glad he’s taking the steps to move forward," said Lindsay, who revealed Harrison reached out to her personally to apologize. "I’m happy to see that he’s getting education to be more productive and more profound in his level of understanding in regards to this issue. I’m happy to hear that."
"I’ll be one of the many that’s going to sit back and wait and see what happens with all of this," she furthered, noting that the longtime host has already vowed to "make steps" in the right direction.
Harrison previously expressed sympathy for the current season's frontrunner, Kirkconnell, when speaking with Lindsay last week on Extra, where he alluded to Kirkconnell potentially being a victim of so-called "cancel culture."
Kirkconnell has been the subject of intense media scrutiny after old photos and comments from the reality star resurfaced, depicting her in unflattering instances, such as attending an antebellum plantation-themed party in 2018.
After Harrison's response, Lindsay pushed back, saying the contestant's past actions are "not a good look" because she was "celebrating the Old South." Many took issue with Harrison's stance and responses during the interview.
Harrison has since announced he is "stepping aside for a period of time" from Bachelor Nation following intense backlash from fans and admitted his comments were "so wrong."
Harrison, who is in the midst of Matt James’ season of The Bachelor, will not be joining the show’s After the Final Rose special -- revealing he doesn't want to further detract from the current season.
