Hannah Brown wants to make it clear there is no excusing her use of the N-word.
Brown let the word slip when rapping along to DaBaby’s “Rockstar” on Instagram Live last month. She apologized after receiving backlash from Bachelor Nation stars and fans, and she continues to do so.

“You can’t, shouldn’t, nor should you have the desire to say that word…that word is truly synonymous with hatred.” @themanacho I wholeheartedly take accountability for the disappointment and pain I caused by saying this word and while I know I can’t take it back, I can listen, learn, and take action to continue the dialogue and be apart of this historical and necessary change. It is SO important to me to tell y’all that there is no defending what I said, and I hope this video helps you understand why you should not defend me either. #BlackLivesMatter #AmplifyMelanatedVoices
On Thursday, Brown shared a video of NFL star Emmanuel Acho explaining the history of the racial slur.
“It is SO important to me to tell y’all that there is no defending what I said,” the “Bachelorette” star said. “I hope this video helps you understand why you should not defend me, either.”
