What did Rachael's mom say about controversial photos that the Bachelor star 'liked'?
Rachael's mother has come to her daughter's defense after a TikTok user named Maddy Bierster accused Kirkconnell of bullying her in high school for "liking black guys."
Other allegations were also made against Kirkconnell on a Reddit thread.
“She went to another high school," mom Kim Kirkconnell told @bachelornationscoop, referring to Bierster.
"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.”
Kim's comments were reported by TV Shows Ace.
The reality star's mother added: “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.
“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."
What is Rachael's background?
Rachael is originally from Cumming, Georgia, and "is a southern sweetheart with a close-knit family," according to her Bachelor bio.
"Though Rachael says she is a hopeless romantic to her core, she has never been in love and believes that Matt may just be the guy to change that," her bio reads.
"Rachael is hoping that her love story will be something huge and life altering.
"She wants to look back on her life when she's old and feel like she has made the absolute most out of every single day.
Rachael says: "At the end of the day, love is what makes your life more special than others.
"Life can be hard and really difficult and dark at times, but if you have someone by your side that loves you more than they love themselves, that makes it all worth it in the end."
