There's a bill to ban Arie from Minnesota, because maybe things will actually start getting better in 2018
The Bachelor‘s Arie Luyendyk Jr. is currently the most wanted man in America. Not because he committed a heinous crime, but he did something abominable on national television that angered fans everywhere. So much so that Minnesota representative Drew Christensen drafted up a bill to ban the Bachelor himself, Arie, from entering Becca Kufrin’s home state.
In case you missed it, The Bachelor just had its most dramatic finale of all time. Arie first proposed to Becca, and they spent a good few weeks living as a happily engaged couple. That is, until he discourteously dumped Becca, saying he’d had a change of heart and that he wanted to be with runner-up Lauren Burnham instead. To make matters worse, he brought a camera crew in and dumped his fiancé on television and embarrassed her in front of the world. And he appeared to expect her to forgive him right away??? That’s a whole other story, and we WILL NOT STAND FOR IT.
Among the millions in Bachelor Nation who were disgusted by Arie’s behavior was Rep. Christensen.
The Republican representative wasn’t about to let Arie get away with what he did to his constituent, so Christensen took to Twitter to announce that, for a thousand retweets, he would draft up a bill banning Arie from stepping foot in the state.
After receiving more than 10,000 retweets, Christensen came through with his promise. “The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk Jr. from season 22 of The Bachelor,” the bill reads. “It is state policy that every person in the state has a right to live free from the presence of Arie Luyendyk Jr. in the state.”
It was thoughtful of Christensen to make sure that Becca won’t ever have to worry about bumping into Arie in her home state, but the bill most likely won’t pass.
Hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
