Chris Harrison steps aside from The Bachelor indefinitely after racism controversy.

Chris Harrison, the longtime host of The Bachelor, has decided to quit the reality show. Harrison landed himself in controversy after he was questioned on Extra by the former Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay about his thoughts on the photos of ongoing season 25 of the popular dating reality series, Rachael Kirkconnell.

The pictures showed Kirkconnell attending an antebellum-plantation-themed party. Harrison replied, “We all need to have a little grace, a little understanding, a little compassion. Because I have seen some stuff online — this judge, jury, executioner thing where people are just tearing this girl’s life apart and diving into, like, her parents, her parents’ voting record.”
