The reality star admitted that she doesn’t “agree with how Chris” handled the situation, and hopes to see genuine “growth in him.”
She shared: “I honestly, I don’t agree with how Chris conducted himself. I think he could’ve conducted himself so much better.
“And I think a lot of what he said, like made me cringe and I was like, I, it, it doesn’t seem like the Chris that I knew.”

Kendall continued: “So, and Rachel held herself really well in like a situation like that. I was actually, you know, I was glad to see that she handled herself so professionally, and it’s hard when you’re in a situation that is blatantly like not okay.
“And I think Chris taking some time off the show is good. It’s so important to be open and receptive of learning and to not have, not to put pride into anything.
“To try to defend a place that doesn’t have as much understanding there’s a lot of ignorance in that. So I definitely think he’s reflecting.”

Rachael received heavy backlash when old photos resurfaced of her attending an Old South Antebellum-themed party while in college.
While many claimed the current contestant was “racist” for taking part in an event supporting the Confederates, Chris jumped to her rescue.
Kendall continued that her hope for the ABC host and producer is to see that he has “learned” from his mistakes and teach the Bachelor Nation how to “do better moving forward.”
She explained: “You know, I think he needs to do a lot of growing. I would like to hear from, you know, in his own words, like seeing his face with more of an explanation about this and with more of, you know, what he’s learned from this and how we can do better moving forward.
She later apologized for her actions[/caption]
“I think that, I think it has to be addressed on the show, you know? And whether that’s Chris saying something, whether that’s Rachel Lindsay coming back on, Matt James or Rachel or whoever, like I think something has to be addressed on the television show as opposed to just social media.”
Kendall spoke her opinion on the future of the host’s Bachelor career, rationalizing: “Yeah if he’s going to continue to be on the show then yes, he has to be involved.
