Bachelorette star Becca Kufrin featured on Season 14 of the ABC show. During the finale, fans saw her select Garrett Yrigoyen. Despite recent rumors of a split, they remain together. However, things might grow a little complicated now. He and Bekah Martinez fell out after she complained about his stance on supporting the police. And, fans know that Kufrin and Martinez seem friendly.
Bachelorette – Garrett Yrigoyen tells Bekah Martinez she’s ‘no longer invited over’
Becca and Garrett assured their fans at the end of May that they are together, despite the rumors they split. In fact, they remain happy with each other. Actually, US Weekly noted the couple quarantined together and deepened their relationship. But how will Becca handle the fact that Garrett slapped hard at Bekah Martinez on his Instagram? She and Bekah seem very friendly. But now, Garrett wants her out of their lives. In fact, he told her she’s “no longer invited over.”
The drama all came about when the Bachelorette alum shared his thoughts about the police during the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests. Making a long story short, Garrett wrote about how he supports the “Thin Blue Line.” He knows that people of all colors put their lives at risk during the protests. He pointed out that “family” and personal “friends” serve in law enforcement. Garret wrote in part, “We can’t judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few…we sure can’t judge all cops by the actions of a few bad ones.”
Bekah attacks Garrett about law enforcement
Bekah Martinez went into angry mode and slammed Garrett for supporting the cops. She noted that those people who serve “choose” their blue uniform. But, “black people didn’t choose to be black.” Then, she put the boot in, by adding, “so interesting you stay silent about black lives.” Then, she noted, “you just HAVE to speak out about cops.” In his reply, Garrett grew angry as well, noting that she thinks she knows him. He also noted she judged him incorrectly in the past. So, no more invites for Bekah.
Justifying his reaction to Behak Martinez, the Bachelorette alum also told her he posted about “peace and love.” Notably, he also posted the big black square on his page. He said that just because he wrote about blue lives, doesn’t make him a “racist.” Garrett noted that what he said took nothing “away from BLM.” While some people on his Instagram agreed that Bekah had a point, others felt it right that he also talked about police officers. One said, “Please don’t be bullied into deleting this.”

I’ve been pretty tore up the past week about everything going on. I’ve listened, learned, helped, supported, and grown. With so many friends and family in law enforcement I couldn’t sit back and not support them and the hundreds of thousands of men and women of all races that represent this Thin Blue Line as well. It’s important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line each and every single day for humans of different race and ethnicity, including those who hate them. The Thin Blue Line represents each officer protecting protestors, properties, and businesses while being threatened, attacked, shot, shot at, hit with vehicles, and other forms of brutality. There have been over 300 injured, shot, or killed in just one week. They are suffering the consequences over an act they didn’t commit. They continue to put in overtime away from their families, stay silent while being threatened, hated, and assaulted. We can’t judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few. We can’t judge the peaceful protesters by the actions of the few violent protesters, and we sure can’t judge all cops by the actions of a few bad ones. Remember when they put on the badge they’re still humans, with raw emotion, the more brutality they face the more on edge they become, they make mistakes, they have compassion, and no matter how terrible they are treated or whatever negative is said to them, they still show up for us when we need them! Remember these men and women who hold this Thin Blue Line; strangers, friends, family, neighbors, or your enemies. They will always be out there protecting us, no matter what! #thinblueline #antiracism #antibrutality
Another Bachelorette fan wrote, “Thank you for being one of the few with a social media platform to acknowledge this 💙.” As you probably suspect already, Garrett’s page exploded into arguments from opposing voices.
