Bachelor star Ben Higgins knows both Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen well. He obviously cares for both of them. As they face issues since Garrett shared his stance on Blue Lives Matter, their relationship goes through hard times. But as a friend, Ben feels it’s best they deal with this now rather than after marriage.
Bachelor star Ben Higgins is very popular but right now Garrett faces loads of criticism
Fans know Ben Higgins mainly for Season 2o of the show. He also worked with Becca on the short-lived ABC Live Tour. Very popular, he now sees two people he cares for hit a rough patch. And, it’s an important thing he feels. Recall that Garrett got the attention of Rachel Lindsay for supporting Blue Lives Matter. With the Black Lives Matter movement right now, sharing that on social media backfired.
Bekah Martinez also got in on the condemnation. She attacked Garrett for his post on Instagram. Bekah felt that talking about Blue Lives Matter at a time like this just adds to the division. In the Bachelor Happy Hour, Garrett’s girlfriend Becca told Rachel that she didn’t think Garrett came from an ugly, bad place. Realistically, with family members in law enforcement, it’s not surprising that he posted in the first place. But obviously, it worries Becca. It devolved to the point where right now Becca’s not actually sure about their relationship.

I’ve been pretty tore up the past week about everything going on. I’ve listened, learned, helped, supported, and grown. With so many friends and family in law enforcement I couldn’t sit back and not support them and the hundreds of thousands of men and women of all races that represent this Thin Blue Line as well. It’s important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line each and every single day for humans of different race and ethnicity, including those who hate them. The Thin Blue Line represents each officer protecting protestors, properties, and businesses while being threatened, attacked, shot, shot at, hit with vehicles, and other forms of brutality. There have been over 300 injured, shot, or killed in just one week. They are suffering the consequences over an act they didn’t commit. They continue to put in overtime away from their families, stay silent while being threatened, hated, and assaulted. We can’t judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few. We can’t judge the peaceful protesters by the actions of the few violent protesters, and we sure can’t judge all cops by the actions of a few bad ones. Remember when they put on the badge they’re still humans, with raw emotion, the more brutality they face the more on edge they become, they make mistakes, they have compassion, and no matter how terrible they are treated or whatever negative is said to them, they still show up for us when we need them! Remember these men and women who hold this Thin Blue Line; strangers, friends, family, neighbors, or your enemies. They will always be out there protecting us, no matter what! #thinblueline #antiracism #antibrutality
Becca uncertain about Garrett, Higgins thinks it’s best they deal with this before marriage
Ben Higgins told US Weekly that “it’s tough.” But he thinks that it might be best they deal with this sort of thing now rather than later on. He told the outlet that he talked with Becca. He believes that “any time relationships end, it’s tough. But I also know that you need to be with somebody that, morally, you agree with.”‘ It’s a hard call for Becca, as she obviously loves Garrett.
However, the Bachelor alum feels she needs to make some sort of decision. While Becca and Garrett talked it over, it’s not clear they survive this. But from Ben’s perspective, he feels it’s way better they have the difficult discussion now, rather than after they get married. He said, “I know this is a unique scenario that is probably raising some really good and healthy and deep conversations for them.” Ben hopes they “figure it out before they would get married.”‘
As far as he’s concerned, the Bachelor alum thinks that “if [The Bachelorette couple] disagree, then it is best that they separate.”‘ Do you agree with Ben? If morally they can’t reach common ground, is it best for them to just split now? Sound off your thoughts in the comments below.
