Bachelor 2022 tonight LIVE- Clayton Echard fans SLAM Shanae for being a ‘toxic bully’ as ‘villain’ Cassidy is eliminated

THE Bachelor Clayton Echard fans slammed Shanae Ankney for her "toxic behavior" and "bullying" the other women.

Episode three of The Bachelor showed Shanae continue to make problematic comments about her fellow contestants' mental health – as well as other concerning remarks.

The backlash toward Shanae came just after her ex bff, and this season's other "villain", Cassidy Timbrooks, was eliminated on tonight's shocking rose ceremony.

Cassidy was slammed for her behavior on episode two's group date.

Fans – and the other women this season – were furious at her "selfish" attitude during a group activity where Cassidy "contributed nothing" and was unapologetic about it.

The Missouri native was introduced to Bachelor Nation in Michelle Young's season of the Bachelorette which aired on October 19, 2021.

    Cassidy's fall: former frontrunner sent home

    Cassidy went from being a frontrunner to a villain fast as more of her personality was aired.

    She was caught on a hot mic saying that she has a longtime friend-with-benefits who she was in communication with as she went on the show.

    Cassidy explained that she told her “friend with benefits” that she will be “away on a show” for a few months and they will hang out when she is back.

    “Whatever show you’re on, let’s watch it back when we’re together,” she told him, to which he said he wanted to do “nasty things” to her.

    Cassidy told Clayton about the relationship, but added that she was still “falling in love” with Clayton, and begged to stay.

    Clayton said there were “too many concerns” when it came to Cassidy and sent her home.

    The other ladies rejoiced, with one saying “the wicked witch is gone.”

    "I'm very kind to her, I'm kind and I'm an adult. She so quickly turned on me like this and for what?" Elizabeth asked.
