Chris Harrison says he’s sorry in ‘GMA’ interview but doesn’t explain why he defended contestant’s antebellum photos

-

Harrison spoke with “Good Morning America” co-host Michael Strahan in a pre-taped interview in which Harrison was pressed to explain why he defended contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s antebellum plantation-themed photos from 2018 during an interview with former “Bachlorette” star and current “Extra” host Rachel Lindsay.

“It was a mistake. I made a mistake,” Harrison said on Thursday morning. “I’m not a perfect man, I made a mistake and I own that.”

Later in the interview he added, “I’m sorry to Rachel Lindsay and the black community.”

When pressed by Strahan about why he defended Kirkconnell in the first place, Harrison did not answer, he only replied that now he believes, “Antebellum parties are not OK. Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

When Strahan told Harrison that now Lindsay is being bullied online, Harrison had a message for Bachelor Nation fans, “To anyone throwing hate at Rachel Lindsay, please stop.”

When asked by Strahan if he was the right person to continue being the face of the “Bachelor” franchise, Harrison said, “I want to be back but this interview is not the finish line.”
