The attention focused on Lee, a White country singer whom many suspect is a racist. He admitted to writing several racist tweets that the show displayed in a slideshow, but he denied being a racist.
Josiah, like many viewers, wondered why Lee decided to pursue the first Black bachelorette. Lee, after all, said he believes the NAACP is not much different from the Ku Klux Klan. The only difference, according to Lee, is that the KKK “has a sense of shame to cover their racist a** faces.”
DeMario, shocked that Lee equated the nation’s oldest civil rights organization to the White supremacist group, called Lee’s tweet “blasphemy,” adding, “That’s stupid, bro!” He offered to give Lee a history lesson, according to FOX News.
Despite getting called out, Lee, a Tennessee native, continued firmly denied that he’s a racist.
“I don’t like racism at all,” Lee stated. “It bothers me inside. I do denounce those tweets.”
