Last night, as The Bachelorette spoilers and previews teased a long time ago, Kaitlyn Bristowe and returning newcomer Nick Viall got. It. On.
Obviously, Bachelor Nation and Internet trolls who don't even watch the show have offered up a variety of opinions regarding this encounter.
This season, Kaitlyn Bristowe slut shaming has become a national pastime, as the Canadian beauty plays the field with a variety of suitors.
Silly, in a sense, given that this is the entire premise of the ABC franchise.
Making out and having sex are two different things, though, and after she and Nick appeared to go all the way last night, the web went nuts.
[So did Ian Thomson, but that jackass is another story entirely.]
None other than Viall leaped to her defense on Twitter, however, after she told the other Bachelorette contestants that the two hooked up.
"Kaitlyn showed a lot of courage by admitting 2 having sex on national TV knowing that she will be unfairly judged by some," Nick wrote.
Viall, of course, was criticized on 2014's After the Final Rose special for lamenting that he got dumped after he made love to Andi Dorfman.
Nick added that, "Sex is not shameful. Whether we admit it or not, sex is important part of many serious and meaningful relationships."
"Both men and women have an equal right to have sex without judgment."
[Slow clap. Nick Viall is nothing if not a champion of equal sexual rights!]
Dorfman had her own replay to Viall, who was the runner-up on her season and left things on the aforementioned, awkward note, tweeting:
"Rule #1 Never kiss and tell, Rule #2 Never kiss and tell twice…."
Nick Viall then wrote: "God only knows where Twitter would be if people lived by the saying "he who is without sin should cast the first stone?"
Oh you two. Admit it, you still want each other deep down.
The only thing that's a shame here is that Nick and Andi didn't end up together so we could see more passive-aggressive fights on social media ...
