Sydney Gordon addresses hateful messages

Sydney Gordon became the villain on Joey Graziadei’s season of The Bachelor when she insisted that Maria Georgas was a bully. She insisted that Maria was saying bad things to her. Maria denied the claims and was seemingly always having to defend herself.

Joey took both of these ladies on a two-on-one date Monday night where he made a final decision about who he had more of a connection with. He sent Sydney home.

Now, Sydney went to Instagram to share some of the hateful messages she has been receiving from internet trolls. She made a video addressing the situation. She shared two verbal messages she received and she said they were just “two of the thousands of hurtful messages” she’s received. Some of the trolls called her a “f–king bitch” and “a skank.”

Sydney continued to talk about the hurt she feels from all the hate. She said, “Every time I open up Instagram, TikTok, I am constantly reminded of all the insecurities that it took me so long to overcome. To hear, ‘You’re ugly’ [and] ‘You look like a man,’ it almost feels like I went back to square one.”

One person even told her she was better off dead.

Sydney went on to say, “People struggle with [suicidal] ideation. That is something that should not be taken lightly. That is not something that we should be joking about. We as a society need to be better, we need to do better, we deserve better.”

  1. The comments are a direct result of her behavior. There are consequences for actions. Her actions on the show were disgusting. She lied and she was the bully. She manipulates those around her. Has she apologized yet? Once I see that, then I’m willing to extend her grace.

  2. I think she set herself up for a bad outcome. When you put yourself in front of the world on camera, you open yourself up to a plethora of personalities with opinions of varying types of class. You have to prepare for anything.
    I am in no way condoning the actual bullying she is now getting. I am saying even if she had executed her time on the show wonderfully she would be getting backlash. The behavior she exhibited only compounds her issue. As a viewer with only a small glimpse into her life, I believe she could benefit greatly by attending some therapy sessions to work on her self- worth and her need to focus on the issues of others even to a detriment of her own well-being.
