Homophobic? ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown Slammed By Fans After She Says 'Sex Was Made For A Man And A Woman’
New Bachelorette Hannah Brown began her journey to finding her one true love during the show’s premiere on Monday, May 13. Things took a confusing turn by episode’s end when she said that sex is “made for a man and a woman”. Now fans of the show are accusing her of being homophobic. Read on for all the details.
Hannah, 24, freaked out on an unknown suitor towards the end of the show’s super tease who appeared to have insulted her. “I cannot believe you just said that to me!” she exclaimed. “I don’t owe you anything at this point. Do you not understand that?”
“You don’t own me, you don’t get to decide what I can and can’t do because first of all you’re not my husband and even my husband, the person that I’m going to be with, is going to allow me to be my own person,” she said in the confessional.
“I believe that sex was made for a man and a woman in marriage,” she then said. “But I’m having physical relationships and honestly I have had sex and Jesus still loves me.”
Fans of the show think her sex comment was homophobic and let their feelings be known on social media.

“Um, @BacheloretteABC - care to explain why you cast a homophobe as #TheBachelorette this season?” one tweeted.
“Sooooooo Hannah’s a homophobe, that’s a weird detail to leave in the preview,” another wrote.
A similar scandal arose last year at the beginning of Becca Kufrin’s Bachelorette season in 2018.
Garrett Yrigoyen, the show’s eventual winner, came under fire for liking transphobic comments on Instagram. He later apologized for his social media behavior.
