Amy Schumer Slams ‘The Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe Critics in Less Than 140 Characters

Kaitlyn Bristowe Really Loves Her Sequined Dresses
"If you love them so much, then why don't you marry them??"

The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe is getting heat for sleeping with a contestant and Amy Schumer thinks that we all should relax.

Bristowe has been a victim of social media “slut-shaming” leading up to this moment as show previews teased the sensual scene. She defended her integrity at the forefront of last night’s episode with this prefatory tweet:


Comedienne-cum-guest Bachelorette contestant Amy Schumer came to Bristowe’s side in a feminist display of Twitter affection.


Bristowe responded with the reality show’s contraband “L word”,
