Following ongoing whispers that Chris, 49, will NOT be back to his on-camera role, the former model ranted about his fury on Twitter.
“If Chris Harrison is removed for good I’m going to raise absolute hell,” he tweeted on Saturday.
Earlier this month, Chris, 49, stepped aside for "perpetuating racism" during an interview with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay.
After Jordan’s tweets, many furious followers noted he has not publicly spoken out to support Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay
When one woman of color replied that Jordan’s take is “white privilege at its peak,” he responded that she was full of “ignorance.”
After another claimed he was “standing up for systemic racism,” Jordan called them an “idiot.”
“What a way to dramatically turn what I said into that. You’re an idiot,” he said.
One more told the Florida native to “educate himself,” and he retaliated once again.
“Educate yourself on something called the human condition, we are not perfect none of us. So stop condescendingly telling ppl to educate themselves,” the angry contestant said.
Jordan was the season villain on Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette in 2018 but was kicked off shortly for his “immature” antics.
He appeared on Bachelor In Paradise where he got engaged to Jenna Cooper on the show’s finale however, after filming, Jordan was dumped following a cheating scandal.
The controversial star returned for the following BIP season in 2019 but was kicked off in just the second week for getting into a fist fight with another contestant.
Fans have called for Chris to be fired after making a series of “unacceptable” comments while chatting with former the Bachelorette.
Chris asked fans to show “compassion” for Rachael Kirkconnell, 24, after resurfaced photos showed her attending an “Old South” plantation party with deep ties to the Confederacy in 2018.
During the 16-minute chat, Chris also continued to speak over the ex Bachelorette and claimed the racism problems were “okay” in 2018 but “not in 2021” – while adding he’s “not the woke police.”
Earlier today, it was announced that NFL alum Emmanuel Acho will be taking over for Chris as host of After The Final Rose – the live show that airs during Matt James’ finale.
The former pro linebacker broke the news on Twitter, writing: “IT’S OFFICIAL: I’ve accepted the Rose & am honored to be hosting The Bachelor After the Final Rose this year.
“It’s been a pivotal season & this episode will be one of the most storied shows in its history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. See y’all then!”
In a separate tweet, he called his new gig "life changing," while adding he "can’t wait!”
