He’s got a Chris Farley impression

During his introduction, Yrigoyen showed the world his best take on the late comedian and former SNL cast member. Chris is regarded one of comedy’s all-time greats, and Garrett’s impression is pretty spot-on!

He liked transphobic, racist, and posts mocking Parkland survivors on Instagram

Following the revelation of controversial screenshots of the posts — which mocked the trans community, a Parkland high school shooting survivor, undocumented immigrants and more, Garrett apologized in a statement. “To those who I have hurt and offended: This is all new to me. I went on the Bachelorette for the adventure and possibility of falling in love, not fame,” he stated. “I did not know what to expect once the show aired.

I am sorry to those who I offended, and I also take full responsibility for my ‘likes’ on Instagram that were hurtful and offensive. garret_yrigs12 was my former Instagram handle and I decided to take it down and start fresh because I have learned an extremely valuable lesson and am taking steps to grow, become more educated, and be a better version of myself. I am not perfect, and I will never be anywhere close, but now I will always be more informed and aware of what I am liking and supporting, not just on Instagram, but in life.”
