After more news about Timm's apparent 'coaching' of other former contestants looking to boost their careers post-show, former Bachelorette, Angie Kent, voiced her opinion on the matter, via a lengthy Instagram comment.
“It’s been over a year to still have to read rumours and see this dross. I had nothing but love for homeboy. If this is the truth why does he have to feel the need to keep bringing up our experiences and full know this would hurt anyone’s feelings,” she wrote.
In a separate Instagram Story, Timm continued to drive his stance against journalists home, saying:
“Imagine being a journo in one of the craziest years our planet has ever seen and you [are] talking about a reality TV show from a year ago.”
However, Pustetto made sure to defend herself against the comments, which may have been partially aimed at her. Posting Timm's statement on the podcast's Instagram, her caption called out Timm for being hypocritical and lying about certain information that she knew were facts.
"After calling me a ‘liar’ on multiple occasions and stories I have done on the podcast ‘bulls**t’, after the fact each time, Timm has then come out and publicly stated that I was in fact telling the truth. Here is the latest one," she wrote.
Agreeing with Timm's stance on mental health awareness, Pustetto made it clear that reality shows, like The Bachelor, have been the reason why many female contestants have dealt with excessive bullying post-show. Adding that while women's mental health should be looked after, having men call them derogatory names doesn't classify as bullying.
"Yes, the internet can be a dangerous place for mental health, especially for women who are constantly being called derogatory names by men like you,” she added.
"Bullying on the internet is bad. Bullying in real life and on a TV set is also bad. Calling out bad behaviour IS NOT bullying. Calling women names IS bullying."
