Colton Underwood coming out was not well-received by a sizable chunk of Bachelor Nation fans. As we previously reported, not everyone had hate in their hearts for Colton Underwood. Some Bachelor Nation fans admit they were not that surprised to learn he was interested in men. Others admit it is sad that the reality TV personality felt he had to hide his sexuality from the world. Unfortunately, however, there were an overwhelming majority of fans that were not here for Colton Underwood. In fact, many dragged him for coming out of the closet.
Now, just to be clear, those dragging Colton Underwood did not take issue with him being gay. There, however, were a few other reasons why Bachelor Nation fans were not happy with him. Curious as to why fans are dragging him for coming out of the closet? Keep reading and we’ll explain.
Distraction from drama and legal issues?

Some of these same individuals note this is a man who was accused of stalking Cassie and putting a tracking device on her vehicle. This is someone many deemed to have an unhealthy obsession with Cassie. If Colton has known he was gay for such a long period of time, how was he so “in love” with his ex?
Some Bachelor Nation fans just don’t think his whole story makes complete sense.
