Garrett has apologized for the Instagram likes and started a new page.
“To those who I have hurt and offended: This is all new to me. I went on the Bachelorette for the adventure and possibility of falling in love, not fame,” he wrote in his apology. “I did not know what to expect once the show aired. I am sorry to those who I offended and I also take full responsibly for my ‘likes’ on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive.
He also apologized for the likes on the After The Rose Special.
