‘Bachelorette’ Contestant Lincoln Adim Convicted Of Assaulting Woman Just Days Before Season Premiered, ABC Claims They Didn’t Know!
It seems like there is a constant stream of drama going on in The Bachelor/Bachelorette universe on ABC. Most of the drama they welcome with open arms, but the drama surrounding contestant Lincoln Adim is a bit different.
The 26-year-old Bachelorette contestant (who has yet to be eliminated this season) was convicted of assaulting a woman back in May, just a few days before this current season premiered.
He was found guilty on May 21 of indecent assault and battery for groping and assaulting a female on a harbor cruise ship on May 30, 2016. When this news first spread online, Jake Wark, press secretary for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, released the following statement…
“He was sentenced to one year in a house of correction, with that term suspended for a two-year probationary period. [If he acts in accordance with the terms] he will not have to serve out his term. But if he fails to comply with those orders or re-offends, he could be ordered to serve out the year behind bars. By law, he is expected to register as a sex offender.”
ABC claims they had no idea he was convicted of assault just days before the premiere. They told reporters that they always do background checks and are currently trying to figure out how they missed this.
I think the problem is that most of the people who want to be on the show are just by default sh*tty people.
I mean, just last month another contestant named Garret Yrigoyen got dragged online after liking offensive photos on social media that mocked the transgender community, minority groups and Parkland shooting survivors. He has since apologized.
Here is a suggestion…CANCEL THE SHOW! BRING BACK SCANDAL! At least the drama on that show wasn’t real.
