The Bachelor has been full of drama, chaos and some next level bullying this year, with Bachelorettes Cat and Romy being labelled the villains of the season.
This week saw both girls leave the show - with Nick asking Cat to leave and Romy deciding not to accept a rose - and many fans were happy to see their negativity leave the mansion.
While the girls were accused of being the bullies for their actions, what has come next is shocking and needs to be stopped, because fans of the show are taking their threats towards these girls too darn far.
A lot of editing obviously goes into The Bachelor to angle a story, but there’s a lot to these girl’s personalities we probably didn’t get to see - the good, touching sides.
But we were only shown the bad and Bachie fans have taken their hate so far that Cat Henesey-Smith has opened up about the intense hate she has received, even resulting in death threats.
Cat took to Instagram Stories to speak up about it all and to call for a stop to the hate.
“Hey guys I just want to address some of the things people are saying to me, I know that how I was portrayed to Australia has not necessarily been great.
“So throw 25 women in a house together trying to fight for the one guy, no social media, no family, no friends, you are completely cut off from the world and you’re in a situation you’ve never dealt with before.
“I did lose myself in this experience but I also have learnt a lot, by all means this has probably been one of the most difficult things I’ve ever dealt with in my life.
“Every day I’m getting hundreds of messages telling me to kill myself, telling me I’m a waste of space, getting death threats that they want to ruin my life and end me, no matter what I did and no matter how bad, no one deserves to be spoken to like that, it’s not okay.
“I’m struggling really hard with this and I’m so lucky to have a great support network around me but people have got to understand that there is a lot more that goes on behind closed doors and a lot more to my personality that you didn’t see and a lot about me that wasn’t shown.
“I was pigeon-holed into a villain role and obviously they aren’t going to show me having a good time with girls."
You don’t stop hate with hate.
You don’t stop bullying with more bullying.
Don’t let the bullying continue.
