As you may or may not recall, Bachelor alum Colton Underwood has a new reality series Coming Out Colton which premieres on Netflix December 3rd.
The series will “chronicle Underwood’s coming out story, as he reveals he is gay to his family and friends” and “address the controversy that surrounded him coming out.”
First announced in April, the project sparked backlash due to allegations of harassment and stalking made by Underwood’s ex-girlfriend Cassie Randolph. Also: Rewarding a Cis white gay with a TV show for coming out seems a bit cringhey.
A Change.org petition to stop the show from being filmed has been signed by over 35,000 people in opposition to the series.
