Becca Kufrin Claps Back At Rumors That She And Garrett Split Over Politics – Becca Kufrin and her ex Garret Yrigoyen may have differing political beliefs, but that wasn’t the reason the pair recently decided to end their engagement.
Becca Kufrin Claps Back At Rumors That She And Garrett Split Over Politics:
While all signs point to Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen voting for different candidates in the upcoming presidential election, the former Bachelorette clapped back at the idea that politics was the cause of their split.
The Bachelor Happy Hour co-host shared a post endorsing Biden in the 2020 presidential election on Oct. 12, posing in a homemade t-shirt that proclaimed she was “Biden My Time” until he could take office.
After Becca Kufrin, 30, shared support for former Vice President Joe Biden on Monday, October 12, via Instagram, a social media user suggested that her voting for the democrat was the “real reason he left.”
The troll added, “He could do so much better with a level headed woman.”
Becca Kufrin subsequently fired back, “It’s a shame this is the sentiment that people resort to.”
Becca Kufrin Is Telling The ‘Haters’ To Unfollow Her:
Becca was apparently anticipating some negative comments on her post, as she also told people who disagreed to “just simply tap ‘unfollow.'”
While Kufrin says the split was not due to a single post, she was also vocal about the fact that their views on politics were not aligned, which put stress on their relationship. Now, newly-single Kufrin has posted her true political affiliations on Instagram with a picture of herself wearing a shirt with the face of Joe Biden along with the words “Biden my time 2020.”
She captioned the post saying, “In 2017 I made three of these shirts — one for me, my mom and my aunt.”
She goes on to say, “It was a semi-joke at the time because we were still years away from the next election, but fast forward to this year and the sentiment still rings true and louder than it ever has.”
The former Bachelorette went on to show her support for Biden, “I’m voting this year like my rights depend on it, because as a woman, they do. I’m voting like my future child’s rights depend on it. I’m voting like humanity depends on it.”
Following her statement, she then warded off any unsolicited criticism, “And let me be very clear here before any haters decide to get nasty in the comments – this isn’t me pushing my agenda on anyone. This is me expressing my personal opinion and support on my own account. Before anyone decides to get vocal about unfollowing me, just simply tap ‘unfollow’ instead if you so chose.”
The “Bachelor Happy Hour” cohost confirmed on the September 1 episode of her podcast that she and Yrigoyen, 31, ended their engagement two years after they met and fell in love on season 14 of The Bachelorette. Kufrin’s confirmation came after months of speculation, prompted by his support for the police amid the Black Lives Matter movement during the summer.
“I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement,” Becca Kufrin said through tears. “After many conversations, we came to this decision. It wasn’t something that we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments. There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there’s a lot of layers, and it’s not for me to divulge details.”
While Yrigoyen has yet to publicly comment on the split, he has expressed support for President Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s campaign in recent weeks. Kufrin, for her part, revealed she was in a good place after making the move to Los Angeles post-split.
“I feel like, it’s this weird, like, magical spot that I’m in right now. Maybe it’s the fact that I also moved to L.A. and it’s this new chapter. But it just feels like magic,” the former publicist told cohost Rachel Lindsay last month. “I’m 30. I’m ready to, maybe, be OK with not having to throw all my eggs in one basket per se. Just kind of enjoy the experience that life and dating have to offer.”
