We bet Hannah Brown is super grateful to have someone like Tyler Cameron in her corner right now! Over the weekend, Hannah faced major backlash for getting caught saying the n-word while singing to DaBaby’s Rockstar on Instagram Live. Now, despite issuing an apology, several Bachelor alums have come out condemning Hannah for her words!

First, the Alabama native denied saying the word during her live-steam, but fans were quick to point out she skipped over the word “f**k” yet still uttered the racial slur. After some back and forth, she finally wrote this apology on her story:

“I owe you all a major apology. There is no excuse and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt that I have caused. I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better.”

We’re not sure if it did her any good because alums like Rachel Lindsay, Nick Viall, Bekah Martinez, and Mike Johnson all seemed to agree the former Bachelorette should have known better!

But Tyler took to his IG Story and asked fans to respond with love instead of hate and give Hannah a second chance. He said that she is learning and growing from this mistake and he wants this to be a teaching moment for us to never use the n-word again. 

Lindsay, who is the ABC franchise’s first and only black Bachelorette, also chose not to drag Hannah for her comments. However, she did call out Brown for issuing a written apology that seemed a little insincere instead of saying sorry on camera the same way she messed up in the first place! She voiced her opinions on the matter in this lengthy but informative and well-spoken video:

What do you guys think? Can Hannah’s reputation recover from this or is she on her way to being cancelled for good? Let us know in the comments and we’ll see you tomorrow with another Bachelor News Daily.
