Cassie Randolph: I think everyone needs to remember 'The Bachelor' "characters" are real people

Cassie Randolph had a difficult time dealing with accusations against her in the latest The Bachelor episode, but she's making it known it's not okay for fans to attack anyone on the show regardless of the situation.
Not only did Kirpa and Tayshia tell The Bachelor star Colton Underwood that Cassie and Caelynn had allegedly discussed becoming the next The Bachelorette star, but the two loose-lipped ladies also insisted Cassie and Caelynn weren't ready for an engagement or marriage.
Based on recent social-media comments, it appears Bachelor Nation has been lashing out at Tayshia and Kirpa for allegedly being insecure and jealous. Some fans also believe Cassie when she said Kirpa and Tayshia were flat out lying about their competition.
"I think everyone needs to remember that these 'characters' are real people," Cassie wrote Monday night on Twitter in response to the negative reaction.
"Emotions run at a high on this show and we are in a very unique environment. While I very much appreciate the support, please do not drag others through the mud or bully in the process. #TheBachelor."
The drama filled episode on Monday night featured Cassie and Kirpa arguing over Cassie's motives and concluded with Caelynn having Cassie's back.
Before Colton had to hand out his last-available rose during the dinner portion of his group date with Cassie, Kirpa and Hannah Godwin, Caelynn showed up and pulled Colton aside for a quick conversation.
While viewers didn't see exactly what Caelynn and Colton talked about, they were led to believe Caelynn told Colton to advance the woman with whom he felt the strongest connection.
