The graphic designer came out on top of 36 other contestants to win the final rose during the season finale.

However, it was later revealed that she had participated in an Antebellum South-themed ball during her days in college.

An immediate backlash from fans of the franchise occurred, and Kirkconnell was met with accusations of racism for her participation in the event.

Bachelor franchise lead Chris Harrison also found himself embroiled in controversy after he appeared to defend her actions during an interview with Rachel Lindsay.

‘It’s fun being in love with your best friend.’
