Bachelor contestant apologizes for past offensive tweets
A day after Tracy Shapoff was named as one of Colton Underwood's bachelorettes, Bachelor fans found her old tweets in which she made racist and fat-shaming comments. “I want to start by expressing my sincerest apologizes for the extremely hurtful words that I said many years ago,” Shapoff wrote on Instagram. “I’m so sorry for those who I have offended. I am beyond mortified that I ever had those thoughts and then proceeded to express them. By no means does this reflect the person who I am today."
