Bachelor in Paradise's Demi Burnett slammed for mocking ex Colton Underwood's sexuality by dissing Tia Booth's 'gaydar'
BACHELOR in Paradise’s Demi Burnett was slammed for “mocking” ex Colton Underwood’s homosexuality.
The 26-year-old joked about Tia Booth’s “gaydar” during Tuesday’s episode of the dating reality show.
Demi previously competed to win over Colton, 29, during his season of The Bachelor in 2019.
Meanwhile, Tia, 30, appeared on Arie Luyendyk’s season of the show before exploring a romance with Colton on the fifth season of Bachelor in Paradise.
During Tuesday’s episode of the show, Tia set her sights on Demi’s man Kenny Braasch, 40.
After Tia asked Kenny on a date, Demi angrily said: "The only thing worse than Tia's gaydar is her denim shorts.”
The comment was a dig at Colton, who came out as gay earlier this year.
Shortly after the TV personality made the comment, fans rushed to Twitter to slam Demi.
Noting that Demi is bisexual, one person wrote: “Demi is very judgmental about Tia dating Colton and making gross gaydar comments as if 1) she didn’t also date Colton 2) she isn’t part of the LGBTQIA+ community.”
Another added: “Oof Demi please do not criticize Tia’s ‘gaydar’ that is not a good look.”
A third chimed in: “Not desperate Demi talking about a gaydar….”
Fans continued to slam Demi as another person wrote: “That gaydar comment just isn’t doing it for me.”
Others agreed Demi’s comment was hypocritical, as another viewer tweeted: “Wait.. did Demi try to insult Tia by commenting on her gaydar? She dated the same man and also is queer herself..what???”
An additional critic wrote: “Demi, you dated Colton too! Your gaydar is more damaged than your hair.”
MORE COLTON SLAMS
Demi's recent comment is not the first time she made fun of Colton for being gay.
During an episode last week, the TV personality was shocked when contestant Brendan Moraisas rejected her.
After their intimate date, she told cameras she felt "weird, very uncomfortable" and like her "ego was very bruised" by her co-star's "rejection."
She said: "I feel like confused, I feel rejected. I don't know I'm pissed the f**k off honestly. I don't understand where that conversation came from.
"This has never happened to me before. Except for Colton, and that was brutal. But he was gay!"
Shortly after her comments airs, fans rushed to Twitter to call out Demi for slamming Colton.
MOVING ON TO KENNY
Despite having her feelings hurt by Brendan, Demi quickly moved on with Kenny.
During Monday's episode, the pair hit it off and participated in a heated make-out session.
Kenny had previously been linked to Mari Pepin, 25, who had confided in Demi about her feelings for him.
As Demi and Kenny's make-out session played out on screen, fans rushed to Twitter to slam the 26-year-old as "grimy."
