Who could forget Dean Unglert’s cringe worthy (and extremely problematic) After The Final Rose entrance? (Here’s a refresher for those who (somehow) could.) "I'm ready to go black and never come back," were Dean’s first words to Rachel.
While Dean was able to redeem himself after his tragic one-liner (he became the season’s fan-favorite), the 26-year-old’s infamous line has come back to haunt him. It all started when Lauren Gonzalez, a fan of Dean’s, shared a pic of herself and the Bachelorette star with the caption, "Went black, but came back."
Dean then commented, seemingly agreeing to the ignorance, “Lololo at the caption.”
The post, which has since been deleted, then went viral as many criticized Lauren’s problematic caption and Dean’s cosigning of it. And after fans began to bash the reality star, he took to Instagram to “apologize.”
"I would like to apologize for the other day when a caption and comment were posted that came across as insensitive," Dean captioned a photo of him at the Men Tell All special. "The last thing that was meant by any of that was to be disrespectful."
