Celebrities across the nation are speaking out amidst the hurt many are feeling. Bachelor alums are doing the same thing. Many are using their platform to show support and speak their support for fellow Americans. Some of those alums are Ashley Iaconetti, Jared Haibon, Ashley Rosenbaum, Madison Prewett, Hannah Brown and many more.
Bachelor alums speak out in response to George Floyd’s untimely death
Ashley Iaconetti went to Instagram to share her support of the ongoing efforts concerning George Floyd. She shared photos and a post from a friend. The goal of her post is to help educate and support organizations who are hoping for change. She ended her post with the hashtags, #justiceforgeorgefloyd #blacklivesmatter.
Ashley’s husband Jared and fellow Bachelor alum took a much simpler approach to showing support. He simply shared a photo that says, “Black Lives Matter.” The caption was the hashtag saying the same.
Lauren Luyendyk also shared a message to her followers. She shared a photo of one white hand and one black hand holding pinkies. Lauren captioned with she’s taking a break from social media. She then continued saying, “However, I felt the need to show my support for those who are suffering due to the inequality still present in our world today. I hear you, I see you, I will do what I can to support you.🤍 #blacklivesmatter.”

I’m not going to pretend to know what it’s like to walk in the shoes of my black brothers and sisters. But I will always try to be someone who respects, values, listens, and stands for justice. You are worthy. You are seen. You are heard. And I stand with you. #blacklivesmatter
Former Bachelorette Ashley Rosenbaum posted powerful message
Bachelorette Ashley Rosenbaum took a deeper approach to using her platform. She shared a photo on Instagram of George Floyd as a baby being held by his mother. She said,
“This is baby George Floyd being held safely in his mother’s arms. He called out for her moments before his unnecessary death. As a human and a parent, I can’t look at this photo without choking up. At the same time, I wonder what we can each do to make the greatest impact. I believe it starts first, internally, then with our children and in our homes. I want to hear how will you make an impact? Comment below. I value your input.”
Madison Prewett also shows support
Bachelor alum Madison Prewett also showed her support on social media. She shared a photo of a protest with a big banner waving in the air. She said, “I’m not going to pretend to know what it’s like to walk in the shoes of my black brothers and sisters. But I will always try to be someone who respects, values, listens, and stands for justice. You are worthy. You are seen.” She concluded, “You are heard. And I stand with you. #blacklivesmatter.”
Many fellow Bachelor alums commented and shared love for her post.
Hannah Brown has also stepped up and made another apology. She was facing tons of criticism and backlash from accidentally using the N-word. The former Bachelorette said she’s deeply sorry. She also hired an educator to teach her about the issues and history behind it all. She owned that what she said was wrong.
The overall message behind all of Bachelor Nation’s posts have been to show support for their fellow Americans who are hurting. They all want to see justice for the death of George Floyd.
