Not only that, but Harrison also reminisced about his previous comment when he defended the Out South party Kirkconnell went back in 2018. He furthered, "There is not. Antebellum parties are not OK. Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable."

Apparently, the reality show star is not leaving the show anytime soon after he apologized, "I am saddened and shocked at how insensitive I was in that interview with Rachel Lindsay," 

He also explained, "I didn't speak from my heart, and that is to say I stand against all forms of racism, and I am deeply sorry. I talked to Rachel, not since she deactivated her Instagram account, but I talked with Rachel initially, and I apologized, and I want to do so again: I am incredibly sorry. To anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It is unacceptable."
