Rachel Lindsay commended "Bachelor" host Chris Harrison Monday for temporarily stepping away from "The Bachelor" franchise following his defense of a current contestant in a way that "perpetuates racism" during an interview with Lindsay. However, the first black star of the "Bachelorette" isn't sure if Harrison's steps to make amends mean he should remain host of the ABC reality dating franchise.

"I think you have to see what happens," Lindsay told her "Extra" colleague Billy Bush in an interview Monday. "I think I don't want to play into things too quick to judge someone, right? Am I disappointed? Absolutely. Do I agree with what happened in that interview? No. But at the same time, he has taken the steps to not issue one, but two apologies. Let's see what happens from there. Now I will say this, to see the contestants come together and speak out and to say what they don't stand for, I don't know how we continue in this way. How do you when people in Bachelor Nation are upset, the contestants of this very show, the leads of this show? How does he go on to represent the franchise when people are so upset by what they saw in that interview that we have?"

Chris Harrison wearing a suit and tie: Chris Harrison announced on Saturday, February 13, that he is temporarily stepping down as the host of The Bachelor following his controversial interview with Rachel Lindsay earlier this week. The 49-year-old ABC personality released a statement via Instagram announcing his decision. “I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful. My ignorance did damage to friends, colleagues and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I said ad the way I spoke. I set standards for myself, and have not met them. I feel that with every fiber of my being. Now, just as I taught my children to stand up, and to own their actions, I will do the same,” he wrote. Harrison’s statement continued: “By excusing historical racism, I defended it. I invoked the term ‘woke police,’ which is unacceptable. I am ashamed over how uninformed I was. I was so wrong.” The Texas native announced that he “will be stepping aside for a period of time and will not join for the After the Final Rose special.” Harrison noted that he remains “dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level.” Harrison outraged Bachelor fans on Tuesday, February 9, when he suggested in an interview with Lindsay, 35, for Extra that people need to have “compassion” for Rachael Kirkconnell amid allegations of racism. Bachelor Nation members came together to call him out after the interview. Harrison issued a public apology, which Lindsay wasn’t quick to accept. “When I finished that interview with Chris Harrison, he had no problems with it. He was fine. He texted me after, he appreciated the conversation. He was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll probably get a little flack, but I thought it was great that we could disagree, but do it in a civil way,'” the former Bachelorette revealed during a Friday, February 12, episode of the “Higher Learning” podcast.     Several Bachelor Nation stars spoke out amid the scandal, some even calling for Harrison’s firing. Taylor Nolan, who appeared on season 21 of The Bachelor, started an online petition to get the host removed from his position. More than 30,000 people signed it. To see how Bachelor Nation reacted to Chris Harrison’s temporary step down, keep scrolling.

On Wednesday, he issued an apology for his remarks, and specifically to Lindsay: "I also apologize to my friend Rachel Lindsay for not listening to her better on a topic she has a first-hand understanding of, and humbly thank the members of Bachelor Nation who have reached out to me to hold me accountable. I promise to do better."

ABC did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment on who will be replacing Harrison on "After the Final Rose."

"Just as I taught my children to stand up, and to own their actions, I will do the same," Harrison said in a statement posted on Instagram Saturday.

"The historic season of The Bachelor should not be marred or overshadowed by my mistakes or diminished by my actions. To that end, I have consulted with Warner Bros. and ABC and will be stepping aside for a period of time and will not join for the After the Final Rose special," Harrison said. "I am dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level than ever before."

James previously gave his own thoughts on the criticism of Kirkconnell in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in early February, saying, "Rumors are dark and nasty and can ruin people's lives. So I would give people the benefit of the doubt, and hopefully, she will have her time to speak on that."
