On Friday’s episode of her podcast Higher Learning, Rachel L said: “It’s wild out there, y’all.
“Bachelor Nation, y’all are gonna be the reason this show doesn’t exist anymore ‘cause you’re so damn toxic.
“You’re gonna be the demise of the show and the reason it’s taken down.”
The former Bachelorette – who previously said she wants ABC to “stop production” – continued to put fans on notice as she called them out for not allowing Matt and Rachael K to deal with the aftermath of the season.

She said: “You’re nasty, you’re vile, you’re harassing Matt for a decision that he made.
“He supports the girl, he’s allowing her to do it on her own. Let’s move on.”
Rachel L, 35, knows all about the brutal fans of the franchise as just last month she was forced to quit Instagram because of “hate and harassment” from viewers.

However, just a week later Rachel L would return to the social media platform with a picture of a sunflower, writing, “I want to be like a sunflower so that even on the darkest days I will stand tall and find the sunlight.”
The aftermath of their breakup was aired in a tension-filled segment on After The Final Rose with host Emmanuel Acho orchestrating the strained relationship.

Rachael K broke down in tears as she told Matt: “I’ve never experienced a love like this. I don’t see anyone else out there for me.
“At this point I just don’t see how I can have these same feelings for someone else.”
According to an insider, Rachael K is “devastated” at the results of the emotional finale.

A source previously exclusively told The Sun: “With how cold Matt was to her, it’s heartbreaking because she really still loves him. She feels abandoned by Matt.
“Not only does she feel abandoned, but the whole family feels abandoned. He didn’t just have an impact on her, he got close with the whole family.”
The informant added the breakup has caused “tension” within the family as it has been “a lot” for everyone to handle.
Despite the conflict, the source claimed “Rachael would take Matt back in a heartbeat.”

“The sad reality is she genuinely loved him even if he didn’t love her in the way we all thought,” they concluded.
Another notable face viewers may not see on the program again is host Chris Harrison.
Chris, 49, stepped down from his position after being slammed left and right for defending Rachael K and her “racist” photos.
The disgrace TV star is currently charging fans $350 for video messages on Cameo.
