Slightly OT - Ames Brown was in the financial industry and his company didn't care for him being on a reality show when he was on Bachelorette. When he was being considered for Bachelor, his company nixed the idea. Ames declined and kept his job. IIRC.

However,  I am saddened that she, as a reddit subeditor, exposed Garrett's IG likes without giving him a chance to explain...as she asked of Ben.
I DO NOT condone Garrett's likes. But, I  wonder if Ashley,  after receiving the backlash over the twitter exchange, has anything to say to Becca and Garrett and their families?
These are very different things, but know one knows what kind of "head space" Garrett was in when he liked a photo.  Social Media can be a dangerous and very hurtful place very much without the benefit of understanding.  

AND after the emoji fun and playful exchange of B & G...I think they have a very loving and playful relationship.  I have been married 30 years, and my husband still thinks I am hot AND visa versa!  
So over people being so judgmental off of stupid social media, that took exactly 2 seconds to react or respond to and I was glad that Ben gave Ashley the opportunity to respond.  Just wish the same grace had be extended to others.  I wish people would just slow down and attempt to think the best in people and not expect that all is said and done with hate.

I thought the discussion regarding Becca & Garrett for this should be here.

Not to re-litigate the Garrett SM issue too much, since I know it's been discussed ad nauseum, but I'll try to address the previous comment in why I think the situations are different (without veering too too far off topic). The Twitter exchange between Ben and Ashley developed into something that it didn't need to be, but they both seemed to come from good intentions. From my memory, Ben said something to the effect of darkness will never prevail over light and everyone's opinion is valid. Ashley countered in saying that he has the luxury of saying that due to privilege, and that it's difficult for those who have been oppressed in some fashion to find hope in words that don't appear to equate to action. TL;DR Both sides meant well.

Following several accounts and liking many transphobic, fat-shaming, etc. memes, I'm not sure what "headspace" can excuse that, and I fail to see any good intentions in doing so. He was enjoying humor at the expense of others. For what it's worth though, while I do believe that Garrett now realizes that liking those memes will result in scrutiny and could be hurtful, I have not bought the excuse that he was originally merely "mindlessly double-tapping" based on the pattern and frequency of his hateful likes and accounts followed. As for whether Ashley should have "exposed" this...I suppose that's based on individual judgement. I don't wish hate on anyone ever, but I think reasoned backlash can be constructive and productive. Just as Ashley only realized the error of her delivery after the intense backlash she got, I do think that the backlash Garrett got was the impetus for him potentially revising his way of thinking and behaving online, something that I'm far from confident would have occurred had he never been called out on his actions. Assuming Garrett has changed, which I don't know if I'll be able to tell yet, if I ever will (not that he should care what I think laugh out loud), this also probably has strengthened his relationship with Becca.

All JMO.

Very well put. I agree with you in a lot of ways. I would like to believe the best in people and extend a lot of trust to Becca. I just think there has been a double standard for so many in the Bachelor nation that it makes me feel that the current political discord made Garrett's situation heightened.
Ex: Garrett and Becca not asked to be on Ellen.
Jordan was asked to be on DWTS with Joe. He TOLD 2 women on air to F off.
Nick fat shamed and looks shamed 3 or more people whom he did not know, nor did they agree to be photographed at the I heart radio festival in Las Vegas on his ig...for which he has sooooo many followers. He is still invited on all podcasts about B nation etc...

I think the assumption that Garrett is transphobic and racist over likes is a jump. Sorry, I just do. I guess that stems from having 3 sons 28, 26 & 24 and know how mindless their ig is.

Everyone has a right to express their opinions, some may like it others don't.

Some people I know are all for the new regulations in Canada when it comes to Pot. I'm not one of them. I know everything I need to know, and regardless of their opinions, it won't change mine. I'm not going to "wish" they change their opinions. I still like them, some are good friends.

I really don't care why Garrett liked those posts. To me the fact that he did makes me dislike him. Those likes are in no way comparable to liking the new regulations of Pot in Canada. If he has grown and learned from that, and has done a complete 180 in his beliefs that's great. It makes no difference to my opinion of him other than giving him credit for realizing that all people need to be treated equally, his actions were cruel, if that's in fact what he believes and isn't sorry just because of the backlash he got. There are thousands of people that get called out on SM for various reasons, including the Nick Viall's the Arie Luyendyk's the Brian Abasolo's and many more, they get blocked and never to be followed again and never given the benefit of the doubt. That's not affecting them, nor is it affecting those that blocked them. It doesn't appear to me that Garrett cares that I've never looked through his IG or that I don't follow him. That's the way it should be.

Becca and Garrett seem happy, that's all that should matter to them their family and friends IMHO.

I always says this that every person is different. We can see what others cannot and vise versa. Everything happened for a reason is what i always believe.

I know it’s been discussed multiple times regarding Garrett likes. As a person that like him even he has those likes because i believe that he is a good person and he did sorry and apologize for everything.

I think it is just part of human nature that each person tend to like or dislike this person whoever it is. So all is well.


I’m enjoying Becca and Garrett journey until now and more in the future for sure. Well they are the only couple in BN that i follow the journey.
