Former “Bachelor” Colton Underwood is being slammed on social media for saying it is “so gross” for women to wear period-stained underwear.
On E!’s “LadyGang”, host Keltie Knight asked Colton, if she were married to him, if he would notice whether she was wearing regular underwear or stained — but clean — underwear that she uses only during her period.
Colton replied,“Throw them away and go buy new underwear. I, as a husband and a boyfriend, will go buy you new underwear. That is so gross.”
Knight and her co-hosts, Becca Tobin and Jac Vanek, defended reusing stained underwear, saying it is a common thing for women to do.
Colton likened periods to pooping, saying,“So if you s–t your pants, are you going to just wash them? No, you’re throwing them away.
Several female viewers criticized Colton on social media, pointing out that his comments were immature.
One woman tweeted, “Why is anyone surprised @colton is grossed out by periods? He is an actual man-child.”
Another said, “If my husband had talked about my period about being “disgusting”, like @colton, before we got married I would’ve reconsidered (unless we were in Elementary school at the time), it is not ok to make us feel embarrassed about how WE choose to handle OUR menstruation.”
