Listen: It’s Great Former “Bachelor” Colton Underwood Could Come Out—But Does He Deserve A Netflix Show?
“Compare him to someone like Lil Nas X—a gay Black man who has to do everything right and nothing wrong just to be himself. We have Colton who harassed his last girlfriend and who was then given a Netflix show about his gay journey.”
Welcome to another episode of BuzzFeed Daily!
On today's episode:
1. “Bachelor” fans got huge news this week. Former star Colton Underwood came out as gay, in an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. Around that time it was also revealed he was in the midst of shooting a Netflix show about his journey.
For any non-bachelor fans, here’s some important context: Colton was the show’s lead. Yes, he was the virgin who became a meme for jumping the fence. And yes--he was later accused of stalking his season’s winner after they broke up. Clearly a very complicated situation.
