Nate Mitchell also appreciated Erich taking ownership and responded to the problems of Erich’s school accepting this behavior.

What did Erich Schwer say about his scandal?

Erich addressed the blackface photo, sharing a photo of just a black square and expressing his apology in the caption.

Erich captioned the post: “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive photo of me in blackface from my high school yearbook that has been circulating. What I thought at the time was a representation of my love for Jimi Hendrix was nothing but ignorance. I was naive to the painful consequences of my actions for the black community and those closest to me, and I will forever regret my hurtful and harmful behavior.

The Bachelorette Season 19 finalist concluded, “I am deeply ashamed of my actions and understand that my apology is only the first step in taking responsibility.”

Erich Schwer and Gabby Windy have confessed their love for each other; however, it looks like they will still run into problems as the season approaches.

Gabby was shown crying in previews for the finale, and Rachel was informed that Gabby would not be joining her in handing out the final rose.

Time will tell if Gabi and Erich will get engaged and if Erich will pay attention to his soulless photo during the live finale.

It also remains to be seen if Gabby’s co-host Rachel Recchia will end the season engaged to one of her three remaining men.

The Bachelorette airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
