Angie defends Bachelorette ‘villain’
Bachelorette Angie Kent has urged people to lay off 'villain' Jess Glasgow who was booted off the show last night.
Jess, who is a Noosa councillor, copped a torrent of abuse online for his offensive behaviour on the reality show in which he made lewd comments about Angie and hit on female production staff.
But this morning the star of The Bachelorette told Jess's haters to back off during a radio interview with KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O.
"I don't need him to be online bullied, I can't stand that," Angie told the radio duo. "I don't wish him any harm or hate.
"Now he can learn from this, hopefully, just learn to not talk to women like that if you want to make a connection."
Good luck finding a girlfriend now Jess.. even your blow up doll thinks you're a creep! 🤮#BacheloretteAU— ♡☆AussieChick77☆♡🇦🇺 (@AusChick77) October 10, 2019
How the hell did Jess even make it through the audition process. Do they not conduct psychological evaluations on all participants? #BacheloretteAU— Heather (@S3cret_Squirrel) October 10, 2019
Jess why don’t you educate yourself mate. Women have the vote now and you are never going to work in politics again. #BacheloretteAU— Fiona C (@Invictus31) October 10, 2019
Jess is an absolute disgusting human and I feel sorry for everyone who lives in Noosa #BacheloretteAU— miss bdj (@bridgetdowneyy) October 10, 2019
#BacheloretteAU #noosa Cr Jess Glasgow has just brought Noosa into absolute disrepute with his disgusting behaviour towards Angie and all women. As he says, "I'm going to find love in a dirty, dingy nightclub in Noosa" Cr Glasgow soon to be ex-Cr!!!— beazle teats (@dubprofessor) October 10, 2019
I should just start sending clips like these ones of Jess from #BacheloretteAU to my step mum to explain why I'm still single— ellen (@brutalkind) October 10, 2019
In a series of interviews this morning, the Mayor of Noosa Tony Wellington said that he had asked Jess to resign as a councillor, telling Nova's Fitzy and Wippa: "That sort of offensive, crude misogynistic behaviour is just not on".
But Angie again spoke out in Jess's defence, saying on KIIS FM: "I don't want him to lose his job, that's not something I would want for anyone … He signed up to a reality show and I can't control what anyone else says or does about the matter. I just stuck up for myself in that moment, that's all I did."
As for Jess, he was extremely apologetic in a series of interviews this morning and said his hands hadn't stopped shaking since he saw the episode go to air last night.
He also sent a message to Angie on KIIS FM, saying: "Just tell her she was a lovely woman, I had a great experience, she deserves way better than me."
And he's not going to resign as a councillor either, choosing instead to put his fate in the hands of voters when he faces re-election next March.
The Bachelorette continues next Wednesday night at 7.30pm on Channel 10
