Bachelorette Hannah Brown SLAMMED by Rachel Lindsay for 'deleting' photo of herself at a 'racist' antebellum party

HANNAH Brown has been slammed by Rachel Lindsay for deleting a photo of herself at a "racist" antebellum party.

The Bachelorette star, 26, hastily removed a snap from an Old South plantation-style college bash from 2013.

The photo showed Hannah – who was accused of saying the n-word in an Instagram video last year – posing in an Old South-style gown with an unidentified male companion.

In the caption, the reality star said she was attending "my Tuscaloosa Belles presentation" followed by the hashtag #toocute.

Former Bachelor star Rachel Lindsay called Hannah out for attending the party and for deleting the evidence.

"Wait seriously? This is why actions speak louder than words," the former attorney wrote on Reddit.

Rachel went on: "This is why we have uncomfortable conversations and this could have really been a big teaching moment.

"We can't continue on a path of pretending things did not happen or running away from them. We do not 'learn and grow' from that."

The Sun has contacted reps for Hannah and The Tuscaloose Belles for comment.

The Tuscaloosa Belles is based in Hannah's home state of Alabama and describes itself as being committed to "history, knowledge, beauty [and] grace."

Its website states: "The Tuscaloosa Belles is a service organization that encourages a 2-year commitment of young women to learn and become involved in the various preservation opportunities in our community.

"They do this actively through education, involvement in community service, and training for leadership. 

Before deleting her controversial photo, Hannah said: "Lord knows I've made mistakes, but I have learned this past year if we want to move forward we have to confront where we have fallen short.

"And it's so important that we lift up and listen and value and encourage underrepresented voices. We just have to be better."

"While being accountable has helped me so much as a person, I'm still not a perfect person.

"But I do remain committed to the work and I'm so humbled and truly grateful to be on this journey and I can only hope that I can encourage others to educate themselves."

The scandal mirrors that of current Bachelor contestant, Rachael Kirkconnell.

Rachael has been slammed for attending a similar "Old South" plantation party thrown by a college fraternity in 2018.

She was also slammed for dressing up as a Native American and for engaging in controversial social media activity. 

Bachelor host Chris Harrison defended Rachael amid the backlash to Rachel Lindsay.

The 49-year-old said he wasn't "the woke police," claiming the racism problems were “okay” in 2018 but “not in 2021."

The presenter has since apologized and announced he is "stepping away" from the franchise for a "period of time".

Last year, Hannah was embroiled in her own "racism" scandal last year when she said the N-word as she sang DaBaby's "Rockstar" on her Instagram Story.

When fans called her out, she initially denied she had said it before issuing a half-hearted apology that was slammed by Rachel. Hannah then admitted there was "no excuse" for the "unacceptable" language.
