“The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown might be in a bit of hot water after a video surfaced of her dropping the n-word.

A Twitter video was posted Sunday by @pastelhour of Brown rapping during what appeared to be a live stream, during which she hit her fans with an n-bomb. The “Bachelorette” star attempted to explain her actions, but didn’t really make a whole lot of sense. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

I’m sure cancel culture 2020 is out to end Brown’s career. I’d urge a little caution against that. She was singing a song. It’s not like she was marching down the street with the KKK. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

Having said that, she needs to recognize what she’s saying will be repeated and move the needle. She has to be much smarter in the future. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

If you’re white, you simply can’t be on video dropping an n-bomb. I don’t care if you’re a former “Bachelorette” star or not.

You just can’t be hitting your fans with lyrics containing racial slurs. Listen to the music all you want, but don’t film yourself saying that word.

It’s not going to end well, ever. That’s just a fact.

She apologized and seems sincere. I don’t see any reason to dwell on this. Use it as a teaching moment and let’s move forward.
