They were slut-shaming her because of what she did last season with Nick Viall. For me, it goes back to the human race. We failed."

Admitting his shame over the public's violent comments and internet backlash, Jackson added: "When I have children they are going to Google their dad's name and this is going to appear. That's my biggest fear."

Surprisingly, Jackson claimed that despite the chaos, he's not mad at Olympios, he's "mad at the situation." 

"I got played. . .not by her but I got played in general. I am not sure by who, but I got played," said the reality actor.

As previously reported, ABC suspended the show "indefinitely" while Warner Bros. launched an internal investigation into the reality stars' controversial sexual encounter in Cabo San Lucas.

Producers later cleared the show of any controversy. Despite that, Olympios' legal team announced they will proceed with their own investigation.

Jackson — who has claimed the incident has greatly affected him and his family — will not be returning to BIP this season.

Jackson's full interview will air Tuesday at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. on E! News.
