'The Bachelor' Season 24: Peter slammed by fans after dumping 'token equality' contestant Natasha Parker
Fans of 'The Bachelor' are not happy with its latest break up. Peter Weber sent Natasha Parker home after finally giving her just one date throughout her entire time in the mansion. "I think Natasha got completely screwed. He waited way too long, put 2 other girls before her and literally just dragged her around," said a fan, adding, "I honestly believe he kept her just for equality and wasn’t serious about her at all. That’s beyond unacceptable. Sorry not sorry #TheBachelor."
Another fan agreed that it was because Peter was actually never into women of color. "Let's be honest, Peter was never interested in Natasha or any other woman of color for that matter. Why must #TheBachelor keep recruiting women of color to be on the show for men that aren't interested in them?" tweeted another. A third one said, "Why string Natasha along if he was going to send her home so far in? Yikes. I even saw that coming. That was so pointless. #TheBachelor"
Natasha's time in the house has been riddled with drama but none of which involved her. She was the voice of reason and always brutally honest, leading her to be one of the favorites this season. While fans had speculated that she was a producer plant to up the drama quotient of the season, fans seem to feel she was treated unfairly nonetheless.
"Peter picking up the rose then not giving it to Natasha was one of the funniest f**king things I’ve ever seen. This guy sucks. #TheBachelor #FalseHope," tweeted a fan. Another said, "I knew Natasha was going home. The black girl hardly ever makes it to the hometowns #TheBachelor". Tweeted another, "Color me shocked. Peter is sending Natasha home #TheBachelor"
Natasha did, however, handle the break up like a pro.
