Bekah Martinez and Garrett Yrigoyen are in a bit of a fight because Garrett posted something on Instagram that Bekah doesn’t agree with. He even uninvited her from coming over again.
So, what happened?
According to US Weekly, Garrett posted a photo with a lengthy caption on Instagram. His post involved supporting the police force and essentially not grouping all cops into the “bad cop” category. Bekah however pointed out that by doing this he was diminishing the Black Lives Matter movement.
“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,” Garrett wrote on the post.
Bekah’s basic thoughts on this is if you are going to say something like this why say anything at all? She believes that this seems more like a PR move than genuine feelings to the victims in this situation.
“It’s almost better to not say anything at all, in my opinion, because when you’re doing that I find it, personally, especially if you’re going on to write a full-on dissertation about the police, you are sort of trying to absolve yourself of this responsibility,” she said. “Like, ‘Yeah, I’ve held space and I’ve posted this black square and my work here is done.’ And it’s, to me, it’s more of, like, a PR move. I don’t see how that’s providing any actual solidarity,” Bekah said on the situation.

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
Bekah Martinez doesn’t like Garrett
Through all of this, Bekah has made it clear that while she likes Becca Kufrin, she doesn’t like Garrett. In fact, she straight-up admitted her feelings towards him. She isn’t holding anything back.
“I don’t particularly like Garrett and I’m not interested in having dinner with him,” she said in reference to him no longer inviting her to dinner because of her comments.
Bekah says that she hopes this doesn’t negatively impact her relationship with Becca. Apparently, she hasn’t really been close to her in a year though. Becca has been with Garrett for quite some time now. This could definitely play a part in what’s going on.
