So I wake up on a muggy New York City Friday and I see the weekend within reach. I catch a chill sitting at my desk overlooking 2nd Avenue, so instinctively I switch off my air conditioner and throw open my giant window with enough force to behead a small rodent and I’m met with a wall of humidity that instantly fogs up my glasses and my mirror. And I shit you not, the air’s so thick that it tricked my smoke alarm into thinking my room was filled with smoke. Smoke detector going bananas in pajamas and it’s not even 9 a.m. yet — I haven’t even thrown back my trenti cold brew!
I knew that this smoke alarm wasn’t just the humidity. No, it was a sign. Like the Bat Signal for Batman, we’ve been looking for some sort of whistle to signal me into action when there’s danger afoot in the nation… in Bachelor nation. My blogging senses were perked. My fingers got all jittery itching to pound keys. I throw open the NY Post, and BOOM! There it is. Another Bachelor scandal.
Per NY Post:
Former “Bachelor” contestant Bekah Martinez is accusing recent “Bachelorette” contestant Leandro “Leo” Dottavio of sexual harassment.
Martinez, 23, took to Instagram Wednesday to post a series of screenshots she collected from her fanbase, all of which claim the 31-year-old Dottavio acted inappropriately toward women.
The screenshots begin with an Instagram post by Dottavio, dating back about four years, saying “you need my big d–k.”
Martinez discovered the screenshot when browsing Bachelor and Bachelorette Reddit pages. She says that the screenshot of the comment has been floating around online since May. Dottavio told The Post that the screenshot of his comment is photoshopped, and was asking his lawyer to look into it. Martinez says she has seen multiple versions of this comment and believes it is real.
After Martinez shared it, many women responded by sharing what they say were their own experiences.
“I started posting the screenshots [of their messages] because to me, it’s not a coincidence that multiple women would be saying similar things about the same person, Martinez tells The Post. “There’s no way these women happen to be lying about the same thing before seeing what other women are saying.”
One Instagram user who claims to have attended college with Dottavio and performed in theater productions with him there says he’d acted “creepy” to her and other women, some of them, she charged, “barely legal.”
Another user says Dottavio constantly pursued her friend and sent her multiple “unwanted” pictures of his genitals.
Martinez says she received about a dozen messages detailing “specific examples” of sexual harassment but has shielded the identity of Dottavio’s accusers.
Soooooo, Leo’s a creep? Really? THIS guy?
So Leo is a creep and Bekah found out about it and put him on blast. Love it. Feed me controversy.
If you go to Bekah’s Instagram and watch the “Sue me” story, you’ll get to see the whole ordeal, but I’ve screen-shotted some of the noteworthy messages for convenience sake:

Okay, so obviously Leo can’t be going around commenting on people’s Instagram’s that someone needs his big dick. That’s just not kosher, Leo. And then when you add in people messaging Bekah saying they’ve had issues with Leo in the past? Where there’s smoke there’s fire, bro. It’s absurd to think that someone photoshopped the original Instagram comment on a picture from a few years ago. Obviously, Leo said this. The whole mumbo jumbo about Leo suing for defamation? Fuck outta here.
Like dude, you got outed. It’s the new cool thing going around where you have your fifteen minutes of fame and then we realize you’re a grade A scumbag. Josh Hader? Check. Sean Newcomb? Check. Leo from The Bachelorette? Well, check.
Bottom line here is don’t be a creepy asshole, treat women with respect, and if you’re a schmuck, don’t even get slightly remotely famous because you will get
pregnant and die outed. .
