Rachael Kirkconnell’s Mother Defends Her
A recent story from @bachelornationscoop revealed Rachael’s mother had made lengthy comments to defend her. Kim Kirkconnell started by clearing up that Maddy Biester did not attend the same high school as her daughter. She said, “She went to another high school. She made all of this up for your attention. And you attack someone whose only evidence is that she liked a pic of a girl who was in a frat house that had a confederate flag. It’s totally ridiculous.”
Having said that, some do not believe Rachael is as bad as people think. “Has the hater from Rachael’s hometown shown proof of her rant, or is she another Victoria saying what she wants?”
One fan accused her of deleting other posts, which she denied. “Rachael never bullied that girl for liking black men. It is simply not true; she even changed her story later to say it was Rachael’s friend group but doesn’t say who. She had lots of friends, so it’s difficult to clear something up without facts.”
“I didn’t defend the confederate flag. We are against the confederate flag. I just don’t understand how you can say she or anyone in her family agrees with the confederate flag because she liked a pic of her friend. The like had nothing to do with her liking the Confederate flag. We would never support the confederate flag.
Kim finished off by terming everything as a no-win situation. “We do not support racism of any kind. It is 100% wrong. All people should be treated fairly and with dignity, love, and kindness. If we could all do that, the world would be a beautiful place.
