On Tuesday, James McCoy Taylor, who was previously on JoJo Fletcher’s season of “The Bachelorette”, confirmed that he took part in the “March on the Capitol” in Washington, D.C. to protest Donald Trump’s election loss.

However, on Jan. 6, the march turned violent as Trump supporters incited a riot and stormed the United States Capitol, which resulted in the deaths of five people.

“Big thanks to #TheBachelor family for supporting me during this time… from top to bottom. Conservative producers are the best!!” he shared on Twitter.

“Thank you @ABCNetwork, @ABC & @BachelorABC for having my back while I legally supported our President,” the post continued.
