“Bachelor” Alum Colton Underwood has come out as gay after admitting he was in a “dark” place in his personal life. While fans are supportive of the former NFL player choosing to live his truth, they slammed him over his past behavior toward his ex-girlfriend Cassie Randolph.

During Underwood’s Wednesday appearance on “Good Morning America,” the 29-year-old discussed his struggle with his sexuality and apologized to Randolph, who filed a restraining order against him in September.

Randolph accused her ex-boyfriend of stalking, harassment, and placing a tracking device on her car. The police order was later dropped in November.

“I got into a place with my personal life that was dark, and bad, and I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses,” Underwood told anchor Robin Roberts.

“I’d like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up. I made a lot of bad choices.”

However, some fans weren’t satisfied with his apology to Randolph and criticized his behavior and apology.

“Great for Colton to come out, but let’s not just forget and excuse his abusive behavior towards Cassie. Struggling with your sexuality does not excuse stalking and terrorizing your ex partner,” one person wrote.

Another person bashed “GMA” for giving Underwood camera time when he caused Randolph to live in fear following their breakup.

“I dgaf that’s he's gay. What’s damaging is ya’ll giving him a platform to ‘redeem’ himself. He’s an abuser. He stalked, gaslight Cassie and her family so much so that she feared for her life and had to formally file charges against him. Where is that conversation????” the individual wrote.

During the interview, Underwood spoke fondly of Randolph and reflected on his actions following their breakup.

“I loved everything about her and it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were in going through that relationship with her was because I obviously had an internal fight going on,” Underwood said.

“I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish that it wouldn’t have happened the way that it did. I wish that I had been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Shortly after coming out, news broke that Underwood has landed a Netflix reality series, which will follow his life as a publicly gay man. Although a release date for the show has not been revealed, production is reportedly underway.
