‘The Bachelorette’ had a ‘mortifying’ post-credits scene featuring a Black street performer
‘And I thought ‘Chernobyl’ was tough to watch…’
Monday night’s episode of the Bachelorette had a very cringeworthy outtake scene during its credits. Bachelorette Hannah Brown and her date subjected a Black street performer to an extreme display of brazen caucasity.
Brown took one of her suitors–Jed Wyatt, an “adventurous” 25-year-old singer, songwriter based in Nashville–on a one-on-one date in Boston, Massachusetts.
Brown met up with Wyatt at Boston’s historic Quincy Market, which is part of the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. The two went on a date and explored the city.
Then this happened, which was helpfully captured by Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman.
“This is absolutely mortifying for all involved,” wrote Aukerman, who shared the clip on Instagram.
Somehow, Brown procured a pair of drumsticks (or makeshift ones, still unclear) and started dancing and chanting.
“Here’s some cash! Here’s some cash!” Brown chants as she directs the money toward the street performer. “Yes, I made some money!” the man exclaims at the end.
The clip has since been viewed over 50,000 times, in less than 12 hours, and the comments more or less sum it up.
“If two people ever approach me the way these two did in the first five seconds of this clip, I’m immediately calling the police,” one person wrote.
Another quipped about the scene being from a new show altogether.
“Is this that new show ‘white people ruin everything?'” added another.
This person had what was perhaps the most savage observation of them all.
“And I thought Chernobyl was tough to watch…”
On top of whatever cash Brown pulled out of her tastefully studded leather jacket, hopefully, the producers at least stepped in and gave our man a cut of that sweet Halo Top product placement money. It’s the least they could do for the poor guy after what he had to endure.
Towards the end of the episode, there was an apparent Luke-off when one contestant named Luke ran afoul of another contestant named Luke. The episode ended on a rather tense note as Brown was left to sort through all the “Luke” drama.
So perhaps to lighten the mood a bit, the episode ended with the scene which looped back to Brown’s date with Wyatt.
The Bachelorette is now plodding through its *checks notes* season number 15 of helping boring white women (with one notable exception, because diversity!) find true love and D-list fame. Maybe the show should invest in some diversity to avoid subjecting its viewers to more scenes like this one.
