As the resident Syracuse, New York home flipper, Tammy Ly turned a fan favourite at the start of the season. Then, issues went downhill — quick.

In one episode, Tammy referred to as out Kelsey Weier of ingesting an excessive amount of, being “emotionally unstable,” and “popping pills.” The drama interfered but once more with Peter’s probability at discovering love.

Kelsey managed to salvage her relationship with the pilot and ended up with a rose far earlier than the ceremony itself when she snuck into his room to clarify her facet. Of course, the opposite girls weren’t too glad — together with Tammy — however that’s the sport, proper?

By the subsequent episode, Tammy’s anger turned to MyKenna, whom she mentioned was solely there for publicity. The infighting led Peter to ask the ladies on a tow-in-one the place he initially eradicated Tammy to a happy MyKenna. However, by the rose ceremony, he eradicated MyKenna, too.

Now that this season’s “villain” is gone, she has a brand new perspective about her time on the present.

Tammy launched an apology for her habits

With all of the backlash, Tammy took it upon herself to tweet an apology about her habits.

“Ok I’m going to address this once and for all- remember that this is a show. I do take responsibility for my actions and I never intended to hurt anyone. I am very sorry to those I did hurt but my heart was never coming from an intentional malicious place,” she started her string of tweets.

“I tend to gravitate toward humor in situations like this bc I’m not trying to mourn in the past mistakes I’ve made,” she defined. “We’re all human. All of us have done things we’re not proud of. So please hear me when I say- I never meant to hurt anyone and I’m sorry.” 

The contestant went on to ask that viewers not choose her primarily based solely on the way in which she was portrayed on TV.

“My 5 minute ‘nasty’ moment on TV doesn’t define who I am,” she continued. “Just like how your mistakes don’t define who you are either. Remember that all of us who participated in this show are human too and some of you say nastier things to us than we do to each other.” 

To finish on a lighter notice, she joked, “Can we PLEASE get back to making playful fun of my ugly faces now?”

One ultimate thought talked about that she loves Canada and “don’t know where Iowa is,” however added, “We cool we cool.”

It’s unclear how a number of the different girls really feel about Tammy’s change of perspective (like Kelsey), however MyKenna weighed in, which Tammy retweeted.

“We all signed up for love not hate mail and death threats. It’s easy to block out the negative comments and rise above but sometimes it really hurts. We are all human. We are not perfect.. we make mistakes,” she said.

Fans say the apology isn’t sufficient

Though Tammy’s apology seems real, some Bachelor Nation followers aren’t having it.

“Sure did seem that way to me! I’ve never spoken to someone like that,” one viewer tweeted in response to Tammy.

“Like let’s be f*cking specific if we’re gonna apologize. Just saying ‘sorry now move on’ isn’t it. You literally haven’t even mentioned the making fun of drug addiction, alcoholism, belittling people for crying, making a joke out of mental health, etc. Like??” another posted.

“Humor???? You were angry and insulting the ENTIRE time. Love when someone reinvents themself to save face. Nice try,” this person said.

“But you did say those things maliciously. Own up and genuinely apologize for being a d*ck instead of saying “just cuz I said something shitty doesn’t mean no one else has & you’re all just as guilty” that’s not an apology woman lol,” another fan weighed in.

It appears like different contestants could also be cool with Tammy now, however that doesn’t imply Bachelor Nation is. Luckily, there’s at all times Bachelor in Paradise to get that second probability.
