TooFab's Week in Celebrity Photos: May 27 - June 2

The reality star addresses the contestant's alleged Instagram behavior.

After "Bachelorette" Becca Kufrin gave her first rose to Garrett Yrigoyen on Monday's premiere, he was exposed online for reportedly liking sexist, transphobic, and anti-immigrant posts on Instagram.

"Bachelor" alum Ashley Spivery first posted screenshots of Garret's Instagram account earlier this week, which alleged he liked memes that mocked Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, the transgender community, feminists, and immigrants. His page was later deleted, but the damage was already done as numerous websites picked up the story.

"I've heard a little bit about it these past couple days," Kufrin told E! News in her first interview about the controversy. "I've just been so busy traveling around the country with press that I haven't really been able to read too much up on it, but everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and at the end of the day I wanted to go on this journey to open up myself and have people see my love story unfold and I would hope that they would stay open and respect me but also stay open and respect these 28 guys that went along on the journey with me."

Becca told Entertainment Tonight that if the allegations against Garret are true, she would "confront" the situation.

"We would have a discussion about it. We would get to the bottom of it and we would find a solution," she said. "I can't fault on anyone for what they believe and who's to say that anyone is truly what they believe in if they just double tap. I can't speak to that because that's just not me. I am a strong woman and I do believe in certain things, but again, that's what's so great about our country -- everyone is entitled to their own opinions."

"I did things in the past that I'm sure wasn't the best thing, but I just want people to stay open-minded to everyone," she added.

Speaking with E!, Kufrin also talked about how "different" it is to start dating all these men without getting a peek at their social media pages first.

"It's different, but it's nice in a way, because I was truly getting to know these guys for them, and have conversations face to face with them about things that were important to me," she continued. "So I feel like I got a much better picture of who these 28 guys were, as opposed to just looking on their social media and trying to make a decision of who they were by not talking to them."

While fans will have to wait until the finale to see if Garrett wins the final rose -- a prediction Jimmy Kimmel made on his show last night -- we do know she is currently engaged.

"The Bachelorette" airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.
