Andrew Spencer, seen here in a “Bachelorette” promo shot, has not spoken out on allegedly offensive tweets from his past.
Andrew Spencer is still getting a rosy reception from much of Bachelor Nation.
Calls for the recent “Bachelorette” castoff to become the next “Bachelor” are growing louder, despite his silence on allegedly offensive tweets from his past.
“Make Andrew the next Bachelor!!!!!!!!!,” one fan recently enthused via Twitter.
“Bachelor Nation waiting to sign the petition for Andrew S to be the next Bachelor,” another person wrote.
The professional football player — who got sent home by Katie Thurston on last Monday’s episode, one week before the pivotal Hometown Dates — has not addressed alleged tweets uncovered by Reddit users that are misogynistic, fatphobic and racially insensitive.
Spencer, 26, is accused of writing the tweets as recently as 2014, with one message allegedly calling women “fat hoes” and others containing more offensive terms or sentiments.
Although many fans are throwing their support behind Spencer, other social media users were unable to see past the allegedly hurtful tweets.
“Noooooo! I just said he was my favorite guy from the past few seasons,” a Twitter user wrote. “This is why I have trust issues.”
Added another, “Damn Andrew!!! This is so disappointing. I never would’ve pinned him to have such a misogynistic and inappropriate mindset.”
As viewers will recall, Thurston, 30, sent Spencer home last week, but the pair later shared an emotional exchange that ended with Thurston reconsidering her decision and asking Spencer to rejoin the competition for her final rose — an invitation he declined.
But seven years before he would vie for Thurston’s heart on “The Bachelorette” Season 17, Spencer confessed his dream to one day star on the franchise.
“Let me be the next Bachelor,” Spencer reportedly wrote in 2014.
But that admission might not sit well with some fans after other “Bachelorette” contestants were sent home this season for “not being there for the right reasons” when they expressed desires to become “The Bachelor.”
Spencer would be the second black man to lead “The Bachelor” after Season 25’s Matt James.
Spencer’s alleged tweets came to light not long after fellow “Bachelorette” cast member Justin Glaze apologized for “ignorant and hurtful” social media messages of his own that allegedly used homophobic slurs and insulted black women.
Page Six has reached out to reps from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” for comment.
