A “Bachelorette” fan has publicly apologized to Gabby Windey after making some “ignorant” comments towards her on the show.

In the second episode of the very first season together, which aired July 25, 2022, some of the boys developed stronger feelings for one of the “Bachelorettes” than the other and began to share those feelings. However, some of the things that were said weren’t particularly nice and ended up hurting Windey and Rachel Recchia’s feelings.

There was one person in particular whose comment didn’t sit well with Windey — and he addressed him on social media after the show aired. Jacob Rapini told Windey that while she was “hot smoking,” he felt no romantic connection with her. He even told her that if she was “the only person here,” he “wouldn’t have the heart to go on.”

Rapini didn’t get a rose at the rose ceremony last week – but he felt bad about the way he approached Windey and what he said to her, so he apologized on Instagram.

Here’s what you need to know:

Rapini rewatched the episode and realized he didn’t like what he saw — so he didn’t waste time addressing it.

“After observing yourself, you will become aware of so much that you need to recalibrate your approach. For me, this experience was extremely taxing mentally and emotionally,” he wrote in a lengthy Instagram caption on July 28, 2022.

“If you’ve seen Episode 3, you know I used some exquisite phrasing when talking to a beautiful woman. I want to take this moment to apologize to @gabby.windey for not taking her feelings into account. What I said was ignorant and not appropriate for the moment. I realized you don’t know what someone might be going through or where their headspace is. Listening instead of explaining would have gone much further. I personally don’t want anyone to say what I said to myself,” he continued.

“I have no excuses. What was said was said. I can’t go back to the past. I can only learn from this moment to understand that everyone deserves to be respected. We all make mistakes, but as a man, I don’t take that for granted. I wish Gabby all the best in her quest for love. I know she will find it,” he added.

Several fans have reacted to Rapini’s apology and many feel he was sincere and gave him credit for being so confident.

“Great apologies, we know you meant no harm,” one person commented on Rapini’s post.

“Wow wow wow. We love an apologetic king,” wrote another.

“Admirable contribution! I appreciate that you stood up, apologized and took responsibility,” added a third Instagram user.

“Your apology was good. We can all learn from our mistakes,” said another fan.

“Very good news! You did the right thing with this message!!” read a fifth comment.
