Chris Harrison’s replacement Emmanuel Echo discusses his possible return: ‘I don’t believe in canceling culture’

Chris Harrison’s temporary replacement is talking about whether the former “bachelor” host will want to return to his role after his recent racism controversy.

Former NFL linebacker Emanuel Echo announced on Twitter in late February that he would be hosting the series “Final Rose” after Harrison left the side.

In the aftermath of his first interview scandal, Harris shared an interest in returning to the ABC franchise, but only time will tell if that is likely. Echo appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday in which he discussed where Harrison went wrong.

“Chris Harrison, he was – as he would admit – he was ignoring and he was arrogant saying, ‘Well, in 2018, what Rachel Kirkconl did was not bad,’ Chris Harrison’s words, not necessarily my own, Said. Echo. “And we’ve accepted all sorts of things and pointed out, ‘No, no, no, it was just as bad in 2018. We’re more aware now, but in 2018, acceptance and dressing in Entebbe South planting costumes is as bad as it is today. That’s bad. “

When Colbert asked Acho whether he believed Harrison should be “fired for good” in the matter of controversy, or if instead “opportunity for education and redemption?” Echo indicated that he would not like to see Harrison cancel.

“I don’t believe in abolishing culture,” Echo replied. “I believe in responsibility. I think right now it takes responsibility for its actions. There are equal and opposite reactions to every action and it could be Newton’s law or it could just be basic common sense. [Harrison] He had an action and is currently dealing with the reaction from it. “

Echo, a Fox Sports analyst, also said that Harrison’s return should really come down to what is in the best interests of the show, its producers and artists.

“Returning to that role, you have to decide, what’s in Chris Harrison’s best interest? What’s in the best interest of the show and the executive producers, but, what’s in the best interest of the cast? He was his first Black Bachelor, trying to commit to diversity. It is in the best interests of all three primary parties to make that decision, and it is up to them to decide which is best. “
