Social media posts over the last several years have resurfaced that show Andrew, 26, calling women “fat hoes” as well as other concerning comments.
In one tweet to his friend from 2013, he said: “And Direll, stop talking to fat hoes.”
Back in 2016, the fan-favorite said: “All blondes have little lips.”
In a tweet written towards Kendall Jenner in 2014, the footballer referenced Kim Kardashian’s NFL star ex, Reggie Bush.
“You’re just jealous I’m going to be the next Reggie Bush in that family,” the athlete said.
He also made a series of controversial tweets about “Black women” specifically, including laughing at someone for “marrying a Black girl.”

The finalist even admitted his dream of becoming the next Bachelor.
“Let me be the next Bachelor,” he wrote with a smirk in March 2014.
Andrew did not respond to The Sun’s request for comment.
Fans were outraged by the insensitive messages, with one slamming him: “Noooooo! I just said he was my favorite guy from the past few seasons. This is why I have trust issues.”
Another said: “Ugh. This is really disappointing. Really like him on the show. I don’t get why these people don’t clean up their social media before they get on these shows.
“I can maybe get over someone being young, dumb and ignorant in the past. But you grew up and looked at that stuff in the light of day now and didn’t see a problem?”
“Damn Andrew!!! This is so disappointing. I never would’ve pinned him to have such a misogynistic and inappropriate mindset,” a third said.
A fan concerned about next season wrote: “The producers absolutely 100000% MUST be seeking these trash people out and I’m so concerned for Michelle’s season.”
“I agree these tweets SUCK. It looks like Andrew S was a problematic 20 year old (in 2014), and Katie should definitely be on the lookout for problematic behavior when deciding if she wants to be with him,” a viewer urged.
In a tweet from 2009, the finalist said: “Who’s fault is that? Poor f** can’t handle a little kitchen knife at work.
“No Type of coordination at all…how sad.”
Justin said: “As I reflect on everything I just went through with this whole journey, oftentimes people ask me what I took from it.
“And one of the biggest takeaways for me was just my personal growth, and one of those things is being able to hold myself accountable, which is something that historically I wasn’t able to do.
“So, I have no issue with owning up and apologizing from the bottom of my heart for the really hurtful words that I used.”
“The last thing that I want to do is run from it. That’s not who I am. I just want to speak from the heart, and hopefully, people will get an understanding of where I was then versus where I am now.”
Though decades have come and gone, Justin added: “What I said was ignorant and hurtful then [and ] it’s ignorant and hurtful now.”
