By now, most of us have heard the rumors about the shocking (and sad) drama that went down while filming this upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise. Plus, it has officially been confirmed by Reality Steve that season 4 will never air, leaving what happened during those first crucial days in “paradise” unknown to the public. For those of you who somehow haven't been swept up in the BIP gossip (yet! trust me), you can read all about it here, but to sum up: there are allegations that a sexual assault took place while filming and that the producers let it happen for ratings.

Bachelor fans went wild over the news and their emotions ranged from worried and concerned for the castmembers to selfishly P.O.'d that their fave summer guilty pleasure was canceled, and honestly — former contestants from the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchise were absolutely no different. We know that Raven Gates, Alexis Waters and Jasmine Goode, who were previously friends with Corinne Olympios (who is at the center of the claims with DeMario Jackson), have unfollowed the blonde on social media. While an “unfollow” is basically the most official diss that you can make in Hollywood, some contestants have come out and weighed in on the whole sitch using Twitter. To see what they had to say, keep scrolling!
