The new season of The Bachelor hasn’t even started yet, and already, one of the contestants is causing quite the controversy. Tracy Shapoff, who was just confirmed as one of the 30 women vying for Colton Underwood’s love, has seemingly been caught using racially charged language, slurs, and fat-shaming on Twitter.
In a series of resurfaced tweets from 2010 and 2011, it appears as though the now-31-year-old shared a number of disturbing comments that, if proven to be hers, would likely end any possibility of her future in Bachelor Nation.
“Liposuction is r——d… stop wasting your money and just get your fat a– to the gym,” one tweet read. “1. Women shouldn’t drive cars too big for them. 2. Do old Asian women have any vision?!” read another.
Others included: “Females with short fat very white legs shouldn’t wear flats. It makes me want to vom,” “Hey, rude Asian lady. At least attempt to speak our language if [you’re] going to come to come to our country and stop yelling at the innocent [McDonald’s] employee,” and “Ugh, the [people] on this plane smell like curry and [body odor]. Thank God the girl next to me is normal and has a Longchamp [bag]. Haha. #whitegirlproblems.”
Despite several publications reporting on Tracy’s sordid social media past, the NY native has yet to comment on the situation. Of course, The Bachelor is pre-recorded so it won’t necessarily have any bearing on what’s to come in Season 23, however, as it stands she’s certainly not going to be a fan-favorite. In addition to Tracy’s radio silence, the Bachelor-to-be has also remained quiet on the matter. We’ll be patiently waiting to see how this pans out.
The Bachelor season 23 premieres on ABC Monday, January 7, at 8 p.m. ET.
