The controversial Bachelor star Arie Luyendyk Jr. tried to fool his followers on April 1, but it looks like the social media users were not too excited about his little prank. In fact, it totally backfired!
The man posted a pic of a woman’s baby bump, making it seem like his fiancée Lauren Burnham is pregnant.
‘Secret’s finally out, we have a bunny in the oven!’ he also wrote.
But people were able to see right through the whole thing and slammed the prank as tasteless.
Before the man had the chance to write ‘April Fools,’ a great number of people had flooded his account with negative responses.
Many fans thought the joke was arguably making fun of couples struggling to have their own babies.
‘I have and will be a fan of them and wish them nothing but the best. BUT the pain is real, and those that have been through it realize that. Just thinking of others…something a lot of people forget to do nowadays. Shame on you for this. So many women are trying everything to conceive, and then you joke about this? It is just really in poor taste… An ‘we eloped’ photo would have been much more appropriate,’ one user argued.
Another slammed: ‘This just in: If Arie and Lauren were not already the most hated couple in The Bachelor history, they surely are now! Come on dude, do you live under a rock?!’
‘Nothing about this is funny or a joke. 1 in 4 women has suffered a loss of pregnancy. A tremendous amount people are battling unexplained infertility. This is insensitive, and shows your lack of compassion (again),’ a third person bashed the Bachelor star.
What do you think about the outrage? Do you agree with the users that the prank was in poor taste?
