Since The Bachelorette‘s Clare Crawley and Dale Moss announced their breakup, Bachelor alum have been reacting. They aren’t very happy with how Dale handled the breakup.
Clare and Dale got engaged after knowing each other for about two weeks on the last season of The Bachelorette. This was a first in Bachelor history, and the couple left the show before the end of the season. They announced their breakup last week in a series of posts on Instagram. Dale posted an official breakup statement on his page on January 19 that has since been deleted. “I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways,” he wrote in the text only post, “This is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time.” However, Clare posted a statement of her own and wrote that she was blindsided by Dale’s announcement. “I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this,” she wrote on January 21. “My intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed,” she continued, “This is not what I expected or hoped for.” Bachelor Nation and former Bachelor stars rallied around Clare after her announcement.

Fans were immediately suspicious of Dale’s intentions after Clare revealed that she had not been consulted before he released his statement. Bachelor alum like Ben Higgins and Rachel Lindsay made their feelings known about Dale’s behavior. Rachel and Van Lathan, her co-host on Higher Learning with Van Lathan and Rachel Lindsay, bashed Dale on their podcast for only being on The Bachelorette for fame. “If this reputation is what gave [Dale] popularity, well then [his] reputation ain’t great after the way you just did Clare,” Rachel said. Ben Higgins told Us Weekly, “The Clare and Dale thing seems super messy. And I feel like there were things going on that were not fair and not right.” The former Bachelor is now engaged to Jessica Clarke, after breaking off his engagement to Lauren Bushnell.
Many other Bachelor alums gave Clare their support during the breakup, while not specifically speaking out against Dale. Her Instagram comments were flooded with love from Vanessa Grimaldi, Kristina Schulman, Olivia Caridi, potential Bachelorette candidate Kelley Flanagan, DeAnna Stagliano, Amanda Stanton, Taylor Nolan and others. Her ex, Benoit Beausejour-Savard, also left a supportive comment on her post about her mother’s health.
