Bachelorette fans were enraged on Monday as they watched Ashley Herbert’s sister, Chrystie Corns, trash her relationship with JP.
Chrystie, who you can read all about here, knew that she would catch some flack for what she said about JP ; however, she never expected to become the Most Hated [Tattooed] Woman in America (for this week at least. I’m sure Kat Von D will do something next week to take back her title.)
After telling Ashley that she was ‘too much’ for JP and that JP was too old and mellow for her, Chrystie has been getting hate mail from pissed off ‘Bachelorette’ fans, and has even been attacked on her Twitter and Facebook accounts.
“It’s been a rough 24 hours,” Chrystie told a friend on Twitter. “It’s tough being the older (heavily tattooed) sister.”
She told another friend that it took watching the entire season to know that she had been wrong about JP.
“I knew I was wrong [when I watched] the date where both JP & Ashley got in their pajamas. It was soo sweet!” she Twittered.
She admits she may have been too harsh on her sis, and could have said things a little nicer.
“I really was coming from a loving place..just had the wrong delivery!” she insisted to a fan. “I think those who know me were shocked to see that… I blame it on the Fijian heat…made me crazy.”
Still, the hate mail continues to pour in, with one angry fan of the show even emailing this to the divorced Chrystie:
“You are a miserable bitch. You couldn’t even keep your own husband. Worry about your own s**t with your cheap-ass couponing b.s.”
How horrible is that? People like the woman who wrote this really need to go play in traffic.
The hate mail will probably continue to pour in for the next week or so, and will likely stop when everyone starts watching the Bachelor Pad and starts to hate on Vienna and Jake. Hang it there, Chrystie!
Chrystie is lovely, a fantastic person, and having (stupidly) scanned the negative commentary about her has done nothing but (again, stupidly) sustain in me a dull rage for the past 24 hours.
It saddens me to know that people see a handful of clips and make a definite judgement about someone’s entire existence, about their life, about their ideas, about their families, and on and on, without taking factors like incentivized dramatization and skewed editing into consideration.
While I realize that the people who sign onto these shows give up their privacy when they sign whatever contract is put in front of them, this shouldn’t give viewing audiences the feeling that they then have the right to dehumanize and decimate these folks in the public sphere.
It all strikes me as quite sad. How twisted and unfortunate is the life of a person who sees the sibling of a reality television semi-star on television, makes a judgement, and calls said sibling a “c**t” via Twitter or email? It’s almost as if as we feel increasingly powerless against corporations and government, we become more than willing to turn on and tear into each other.
Thanks The Ashley for the share. I love coupons, deals, groupon and livingsocial, but I don’t want to go searching each one every day or sort through emails so I use Vonza.com.
