Rachel Lindsay spreads positivity when she returns to Instagram. One week after their account was deactivated for harassment and hatred by Bachelor Fans, the former Bachelorette returned to the social media platform with a handful of uplifting posts. Alongside a photo of sunflowers, Rachel wrote: "I want to be like a sunflower so that I can stand tall and find the sunlight even on the darkest days." The post caught a handful of sweet messages from former Bachelor Nation stars, including Kaitlyn Bristowe, who wrote, "You do do ❤️❤️❤️❤️". Rachel also shared a video of her hiking in LA on her Instagram Stories entitled, "Good Vibes Only."
Rachel had previously deleted her Instagram account on Feb.26 after being molested by Bachelor fans below her extra Interview with Chris Harrison where he defended Bachelor Rachael Kirkconnell's controversial social media activity (and alleged front runner). Rachel is Higher learning Podcast cohost Van Lathan later confirmed her opt-out on social media, writing, "She did it because she got so much hate from undergraduate fans spamming her with all sorts of rude, hateful things."
Since the original interview was broadcast, Chris has announced that he will "step out" of the franchise for the time being. The upcoming special "After the Final Rose" will now be hosted by former NFL player Emmanuel Acho.
