Do you think they have a case?
News broke Tuesday that Nathaniel Claybrooks and Christopher Johnson, two African-American football players from Nashville, are holding a press conference Wednesday to discuss their decision to file a class action lawsuit against ABC?s The Bachelor on behalf of ?all persons of color who have applied for the role of The Bachelor or Bachelorette but been denied the equal opportunity for selection on the basis of race.? The players say they plan to target ABC, Bachelor executive producer Mike Fleiss, and the show?s production companies (which include Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment, and NZK Productions).
The release announcing the conference noted that, ?Over a combined total of 23 seasons, neither show has ever had a Bachelor or Bachelorette of color.?
