Garrett Yrigoyen may have gotten Becca Kufrin's "first impression rose" on episode one of The Bachelorette, but his social media history has revealed the possibility of a hateful side to the seemingly-sweet TV hunk.

After the medical sales rep, 29, conquered Kufrin's heat with his cheesy performance on their first meeting, former Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey took to Twitter to expose his dark social media history.

As it turns out, Yrigoyen has a history of liking offensive, hateful, transphobic memes. While Kufrin, 28, claimed she was "smitten" with him on the premiere of The Bachelorette, his past social media behavior will likely not go over well with the known women's rights advocate.

In a shocking post, Spivey, 33, shared screen grabs of extremely offensive Instagram posts which were liked by Yrigoyen. One of them mocked Caitlyn Jenner, showing photos of her before and after her transition. Another made a cruel joke about an illegal Mexican child being "thrown" back across the border by a U.S. guard. A third one shamed NFL players that chose to kneel during the National Anthem.

While Garrett Yrigoyen has not commented on his questionable social media activity, Bachelorette fans are warning Becca Kufrin to stay away!

As readers know, this is not Yrigoyen's first scandal. Back in 2016, the hunk filed for divorce from wife Kayla — whom he was married to for just six months!
