The Bringing Up Bates family is currently facing backlash after a disturbing video went public. Now, more details about the family’s past are coming out. Read on to get the full scoop on the latest Bates family controversy.
Carlin Stewart Shares Offensive Joke
As we reported on Friday evening, Carlin Stewart shared an offensive post while at a family gathering. In the clip, the Bates are playing charades. Lawson Bates acts out the “hunting” motion by pretending to shoot one of his younger brothers with a gun. Then, in the background, another brother guesses “George Floyd.” Everyone else laughs at the inappropriate joke. Not only did Carlin record this, but she posted it on her Instagram stories for her 350,000 followers to see.
Shortly after posting it, the UPtv star took the video down. However, it’s been saved on social media and is still available to view. Here’s the Reddit link to the video. Fans are calling for Bringing Up Bates to be canceled.
After Carlin received negative messages about her post, she sent a poorly executed apology to some of her followers. She’s now under fire for not truly apologizing.
Bringing Up Bates Family’s Disturbing Photo Surfaces
On social media, information about the Bates family’s past is circulating. Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball shared a quick summary of the Bates family’s racist actions in the past. Fans and critics are bringing up the family past to show that this recent joke isn’t an isolated incident.
Katie writes, “The problem is that the Bates have shown us over and over that they are racist. They just cover it up better today than they use to in the early days.”
On Facebook, Life is Not All Pickles and Hairspray posted about the Bates family’s history as well. They shared a photo from the family’s home renovation. Then, they explained, “The Bates family posted photos of their renovated house and rooms which included this photo of Nathan Bedford Forrest. Forrest happened to be the first Grand Wizard of the KKK. The Bates have a son named Nathan.”
The Facebook post points out, “Gil and Kelly are college educated so I’m sure they know all about Forrest’s terrorist/racist/murdering history.”
