Rumored Colton Underwood Netflix series sparks backlash


Over 25,000 people have signed an online petition urging Netflix to cancel a rumored upcoming reality series starring newly-out Bachelor alum Colton Underwood.

It was reported that the streaming giant would document Underwood's experiences as an openly gay man, alongside Olympian fame whore Gus Kenworthy, almost immediately after he opened up about his sexuality on Good Morning America's last Wednesday. The petition cites allegations of harassment and stalking, leveled against Underwood by ex Cassie Randolph, as justification for scrapping the project:

"Cassie is a victim of Colton's abuse, and he does not deserve a platform in any way. Regardless of his sexuality, Colton should not be given a platform as a result of his abusive, manipulative, and dangerous behavior."

Representatives for Netflix, Randolph and Underwood have yet to respond.
