The Bachelorette’s Hannah B. & Luke Continue Last Night’s Fight On Twitter
Last night’s episode of The Bachelorette had us absolutely hooked to our screens, but the drama didn’t stop after the show ended. The episode saw Luke P. explain to Hannah Brown that he had been abstaining from sex for some time, despite not being a virgin, and was now saving himself for marriage. He then went on to say that he wanted Hannah to be on the same page and avoid sleeping with any of the other contestants on the reality show. Awkward because she’d already done it with another contestent in a frickin’ windmill.
“Like, I don’t believe that’s something that you should be doing, and I just want to make sure you’re not going to be sexually intimate with the other relationships here,” he said, before threatening that he would leave the show if Hannah were to do so. The Bachelorette then savagely told Luke to leave because she’s “a grown woman and can make my own decisions.” We stan a queen.
Just when we thought Luke would be hiding somewhere right now with his tail between his legs, he decided to continue the debate about his controversial views about sex on social media. He took to Instagram last night to try to defend himself, writing this lengthy caption alongside a photo of him and Hannah. “I was simply making a decision for myself on what I expected in our relationship, our conversations and our beliefs led me to believe we were on the same page about sex,” he claimed, after saying he was upset that “Hannah felt [he] was shaming her.”

It hurt my heart that @alabamahannah felt I was shaming her. In our conversation my heart was never to judge or condemn Hannah. I was simply making a decision for myself on what I expected in our relationship, our conversations and our beliefs led me to believe we were on the same page about sex. For me it was never about getting a rose, it was always about finding a wife who would choose me everyday just as I would choose her everyday. As for my time on the show I made mistakes and no I’m not perfect (crazy right) I didn’t totally behave as the man I want to be and I did not represent Christ the way I thought I was prepared to and that has broken me. This journey has taught me so much and for that I am grateful but the greatest gift I have received is a compassion for those who love the world and it’s ways. My desire is to put the Father first above all things and share the truth that he has given to us all. Thank you everyone for the prayers always remember speak truth and rid yourself of all hate, let compassion drive your words. Stay tuned. #faithfuloverfamous
Luke then took to Twitter to address the issue, because Instagram just wasn’t enough. The season 15 star tweeted at Alabama native Hannah saying: “The difference in how we view sin is seen in the response, I’m weeping at mine and you’re laughing at yours. All sin stings. My heart hurts for both of us.”

Hannah quickly clapped back to Luke’s tweet, responding: “time and time again jesus loved and ate with ‘sinners’ who laughed. and time and time again he rebuked ‘saints’ that judged. where do you fall Luke?”
Luke continued the fight back and forth on Twitter. “There is a difference between eating with sinners who laugh and sinners who laugh at their sin. Sin is the very thing that put Jesus on the cross and that’s not a laughing matter.”
Hannah then got snappy, saying that she has “never said that i find my sin funny. i’m not going to [be] lectured on appropriate emotional responses by a guy who threw deli meat in a guys lap,” referring to an encounter Luke had with another contestant on the show earlier on the season.
Just when Luke probably should have walked away from the spat, he tweeted about previous comments Hannah had made about having sex in a windmill. “Your tweets about the windmill and the wood were enough,” he said. “It’s not about the action it’s about the response. If you want to talk about it, you know how to get ahold of me.”
Hannah then ended the argument the same way it began … about Jesus. “The devil wants to shame sin. God dealt with shame when he dealt with sin, so I will not allow someone who comes in the name of God to bring me something that God has taken off me.”

Tyler Cameron, Jed Wyatt, and Peter Weber are still in the running for Hannah’s final rose. We’re guessing we’re not the only people DYING for next week’s episode.
