Carlin Bates seems to be trying to buy her followers’ forgiveness after sharing an extremely controversial post on social media. The whole Bringing Up Bates family is under fire for a comment someone made at a family gathering. Carlin happened to be recording the moment and uploaded it to her Instagram stories, exposing the family. Now, she continues to try to earn their forgiveness and trust. So, what exactly happened, and what is Carlin trying now?
As we’ve reported, Carlin and most of her family members gathered at Gil and Kelly Jo Bates’ home on Friday night. During a game of charades, Lawson Bates acted out “hunting” by pretending to shoot one of his younger brothers. As the siblings began to guess the action, someone yelled out, “George Floyd!” Fans think it was either Nathan or Trace who said it, but we aren’t 100% sure.
Shortly after Carlin posted the video, it was taken down, but it was too late. The video is still circulating on Instagram, Reddit, and other social media platforms. Now, fans are calling on UPtv to cancel the Bates family’s show. Carlin then responded to a few fans’ DMs about the video but did not issue a public apology. Now, she’s trying something else to win over her fans.
Carlin Bates offers fans free coffee.
On her Instagram stories on Saturday, Carlin snapped a screenshot of her Dunkin Donuts payment card, which she and her husband, Evan loaded up. She doesn’t reveal how much is on the card, but she invites her followers to scan the photo at their local Dunkin Donuts. She writes, “It’s a good day. Coffee on us!” Also in her post, she reminds fans to only use it for one drink per person.
On Reddit, Bringing Up Bates fans are discussing the post. One user writes, “She’s like oh I’m totally sorry for being racist here’s a free coffee and let’s forget all about.”
Another adds, “She’s has never done this before, if this isn’t pandering I don’t know what is.”
Shortly after Carlin shared this snap on her Instagram stories, she posted a follow-up story revealing that all of the money on the card had been used. So, it looks like Bates family fans took advantage of this offer and accepted Carlin’s treat.
Though Carlin has taken down the video, you can watch it here.
