"Bachelor in Paradise" fans are ecstatic the ABC reality series will be returning, but some think the show's Season 4 promo was a bit "tasteless."
"Well, that was a super tasteless #bip promo," one fan tweeted. "Another reason not to watch."
Though Jackson and Olympios do not appear in the video above, fans were still upset that ABC would use "sexual misconduct as a sales point."

Turning the sexual harassment scandal for #BIP into a marketing ploy for the new ads is a new low. Yes I'm happy it's back, but still.— Colleen Kowalski (@C_Kowalski727) July 18, 2017
The reality show was shut down Sunday, June 11, following reports of "misconduct" involving Jackson and Olympios engaging in sexual acts in a hot tub.
"The safety, security and well-being of the cast and crew is our number one concern, and we suspended filming so that the allegations could be investigated immediately and thoroughly," Warner Bros. later said in a statement. "Our internal investigation, conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. The tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy."
Filming in Mexico resumed after network executives implemented "certain changes to the show's policies and procedures to enhance and further ensure the safety and security of all participants."
"Bachelor In Paradise" premieres Monday, August 14, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
