Jason Tartick defends his fiancee. During an interview at the Click Bait with Bachelor Nation podcast, the 32 year old Bachelorette party Alum criticized online trolls for criticizing Kaitlyn Bristowe’s appearance.
“I don’t know why people think it’s okay to say what they’re doing on Twitter,” Tartick told podcast co-hosts Tayshia Adams, Joe Amabile and Natasha Parker. “There are so many things in this world that we can control, and there are so many things that we cannot control. Our looks and things like that are most of the things that we cannot control.”
“The way people make comments, nasty comments about people’s appearance, and obviously, specifically, I mean Kaitlyn, it’s grotesque. It’s a joke,” he continued. “I don’t see why people have to do that.”
Bristowe, who got engaged to Tartick in May, is currently co-hosting Katie Thurston’s season of High school with Adams. The women took on the role after Chris Harrison left the franchise following its racism controversy.
“The fact that it’s usually women who look down on other women is crazy. When Chris Harrison was there, did people talk about Chris Harrison’s looks? Or when there’s a guy there?” he questioned. “… I think it’s absolutely ridiculous and I don’t know why people think it’s okay.”
“People see it, people hear it and feel it. Whether they show it or not, it has to end,” Tartick continued. “… With the bad comes the good, but when you see some of the bad, and you say, ‘Oh, she’s old,’ well yeah, we all get old. What do you want? What do you do about it? We all get old, we all die, that’s inevitable. “
Bristowe, 36, addressed criticism for her appearance last month, when a Twitter user questioned how the former single’s appearance had changed.
“Six years since I was on the show, browlift, brow microblading, I got my teeth glued, a bit of filling on my lips, aging, darker hair and I finally learned to contour,” Bristowe tweeted. “Oh, and I got a little fat.”
After another social media user wrote that Bristowe’s face was “broken,” he replied, “so sick of women commenting on my face. Jesus.”
During his podcast interview, Tartick praised his fiancée for remaining herself amid all the criticism.
“It’s so exciting to see her live all her dreams … What’s really cool is with Kaitlyn, Kaitlyn from Kaitlyn, and she’s her own person,” he said. “She will never settle for how she should be or should act or should say, she’s always herself … It’s so much fun to watch.”
