Rachel Lindsay is shutting down the “angry Black female” label as soon as once more.
The former lead of The Bachelorette appeared on the June four episode of The View, through which she weighed in on the scenario surrounding Real Housewives of New York‘s Eboni Ok. Williams. In an episode that aired earlier this week, Eboni, the first Black cast member on RHONY, accused Luann de Lesseps of labeling her an offended Black girl throughout an argument over a earlier dialog about intercourse. Following the dialogue, Eboni introduced on Instagram that she could be taking a brief break from social media.
Rachel stated she pertains to Eboni’s emotions about being referred to as offended.
“In my season finale of The Bachelorette when I was sitting on stage with my runner up, my runner up told me that I was going to live a mediocre life if I didn’t choose him and my response to him was, ‘Actually I’m living my best life,'” Rachel stated of her dialog with Peter Kraus. “When I came back from commercial break, the host [Chris Harrison] said to me, ‘Rachel, you seem angry.’ I looked and I said, ‘That’s a strong word.’ And he said, ‘Well, you seem upset.’ I hadn’t raised my voice, I hadn’t yelled, I hadn’t said any type of curse word.”
When he was requested for an evidence as to why he felt attacked by Rachel, Peter could not supply one.
“I have been labeled an angry Black female in Bachelor Nation,” Rachel continued. “It follows me around to this day.”
