5. Greer Blitzer’s Blackface Apology

When season 27 of The Bachelor began filming, some of Greer’s old tweets defending someone wearing blackface resurfaced. She took to her Instagram story to apologize. “The journey to love is filled with lessons and these lessons are also made on our journey of growth,” Greer wrote. “In my past, I have made some uneducated, ignorant and frankly, wrong, comments on my social media accounts. In particular, I used misguided arguments on Twitter to defend a student who dressed in Blackface as Tupac for Halloween. I am deeply sorry to those I have hurt, especially those within the Black community, not because these screenshots have resurfaced, but because I ever shared these harmful opinions at all. Time and age do not excuse my actions, but this is not a reflection of who I am today.”
