Shawn Ryan has no love for 'The Bachelor,' calling the show 'racist'
Ryan, the creator of "The Shield" and Fox' "The Chicago Code," is blasting the producers of the dating relationship series for comments regarding the show's lack of cultural diversity. Creator Mike Fleiss said recently that the reason why a person of color has not been cast in the main role of bachelor or bachelorette is because minorites have not "come forward."
Ryan tweeted that the explanation was nonsense and that the show was guilty of "straight up racism."
