It’s no secret that fans of “The Bachelor” are not happy with Arie Luyendyk Jr. after he proposed to Becca Kufrin in the season finale, only to dump her a few months later — bringing a camera crew with him — so he could instead get together with runner-up Lauren Burnham.
Some viewers, however, were so angered by Luyendyk’s shockingly callous move that they decided to rent some billboards to explain exactly how they feel about the “Bachelor” star.
As Entertainment Weekly reports, several billboards have been spotted in Southern California, along with one in Kufrin’s home state of Minnesota and one more planned for Times Square, with photos of the billboards popping up on social media.
While it’s not known who’s responsible for the billboards, or if they’re the work of a single fan or a group, the photos below indicate that the message to Arie is short but decidedly not sweet.
“Arie… Not okay, just leave,” read the billboards, with the message signed, “Everyone.”
In an interview with People, Luyendyk addressed the fan backlash by admitting his path to love with Lauren was far from ideal.
“This might not be what people feel like is the perfect love story,” he told the magazine. “But it’s our love story.”
