“I don’t know why people think it’s OK to say the s--t they do on Twitter,” he told co-hosts Tayshia Adams, Joe Amabile, and Natasha Parker.
“There’s so many things in this world we can control, and there’s so many things we can’t control. Our looks and things like that are most of the things we can’t control,” Jason continued. “And the way that people make comments, nasty comments, about people’s appearances — and obviously, specifically, I’m referring to Kaitlyn — it’s grotesque. It’s a joke.”
Since stepping in as co-host of “The Bachelorette” Season 17 alongside Tayshia, Kaitlyn has faced an influx of cruel comments about her looks.
On June 17, Kaitlyn responded to a Twitter user who told her there was something “different” about the way she looked since she first entered the franchise in 2015 as a contestant on “The Bachelor” Season 19.
“6 years since I was on the show, Brow lift, brow micro blading, got my teeth bonded, some filler In my lips, aging, darker hair, and I finally learned how to contour,” Kaitlyn boldly wrote in her reply. “Oh and I put on some weight.”
During his “Click Bait” appearance, Jason noted how women are often judged harsher than men.
“I don’t see why people have to do that,” he said. “And the other thing is, the fact that it’s usually women putting other women down is just insane. When Chris Harrison was up there, were people talking about Chris Harrison’s looks? Or when a guy’s up there?”
