‘The Bachelorette’ season 15: Jed Wyatt’s sister accuses ABC of making her look bad and fans claim she is 'pot calling the kettle black'
Following the airing of the Hometown date episode on 'The Bachelorette', the Wyatt clan is unhappy with the way they have been portrayed on the episode, accusing ABC of editing the footage
Jed Wyatt has officially become controversy’s favorite child on this season of 'The Bachelorette'. Earlier this season, his alleged girlfriend came forward and gave an interview where she revealed that they hadn't broken up when Jed made his way to the reality dating show. She added fuel to the fire by sharing that he is on the show not for love but to propel his musical career. After these allegations came to the surface, fans pretty much lost it, and instantly took to hating Jed.
Hannah Brown, this season's Bachelorette, for some reason still insists on keeping the bad boys around and booting the good ones like Mike Johnson. In the latest episode of 'The Bachelorette', the final four contestants (Pete, Tyler, Luke, and Jed) went on hometown dates, where the men introduced Hannah to their families and Hannah got a chance to get a look into their background and gauge whether any of the men were ready to become her "future husband".
While the hometown dates with all the families went smoothly, the Wyatt family seemed to think otherwise. Jed's sister, Lilly Wyatt, recently took to Instagram and posted a story accusing ABC of editing her interaction with Hannah to make her look "mean and bad".
In case you missed the episode, here is the brief recap to bring you up to date on the events that led to Lilly's accusations. After three beautiful, warm hometown dates with the other three contestants, Hannah made her way to Tennessee, to meet the Wyatt family.
When she finally sat down with the Wyatt clan to discuss what they think of her and Jed, and if Jed is ready for the relationship, she receives an unexpected response from the Wyatt ladies. Jed’s mother told Hannah that Jed isn't ready for the engagement that Hannah is hoping for. Jed's sister, Lilly too agreed with it. Lilly is shown as saying, "I'm very protective over Jed and making music makes him so happy. And him potentially falling in love with you, I'm not sure it's a good thing."
According to Lilly, ABC edited the footage so much that it looks like she is being mean. However, fans don't buy it. They had a lot to say to the Wyatt family. A fan commented saying, "Hello, Pot. This is Kettle. You are black. Enabling and guilty whining there."
The fan was referring to Jed's cheating allegations and calling out the family for thinking Hannah isn't the best fit for their son. Another fan wrote, "Um, did she miss the part where they played a clip of her being snarky to the camera? It's reality tv, and you're on camera - you have to be aware of your behavior at all times, and maybe you were just more passive-aggressive than you thought."
The comments directed at the Wyatt family got to Jed, and Jed finally posted on his Instagram requesting fans to not send threatening messages to his family, and to be kind and patient until he can open up about the situation.
