The Bachelor fans slam Zoe-Clare McDonald for claiming Areeba Emmanuel 'discriminated' against her

The Bachelor viewers have accused Zoe-Clare McDonald of ‘using the discrimination card’ against one of this season’s only woman of colour, Areeba Emmanuel.

On Wednesday night’s episode, a sobbing Zoe-Clare expressed her concerns that she was unfairly targeted because of her red hair by 25-year-old Areeba, who is of Pakistani descent.

However, fans of the show blasted ‘privileged’ Zoe-Clare for ‘complaining to a person of colour about being oppressed for having red hair.’

Zoe-Clare’s meltdown began when Areeba interrupted her date with Locklan ‘Locky’ Gilbert during the premiere episode.

After blasting Areeba for her ‘inappropriate’ actions, she later told producers she was mistreated because of the colour of her locks.

Viewers were not impressed by her words, as one tweeted: ‘Zoe-Clare complaining to one of the only POC in the house about being oppressed for having red hair is just…….so…..incredibly tone-deaf #TheBachelorAU.’

Another added: ‘Imagine thinking the token POC in the house is attacking you because you’re the minority redhead #thebachelorau.’

Someone else wrote: ‘Is she actually trying to play the discrimination card to the only POC on the show okay then #TheBachelor #TheBachelorau #thebachelorau

Others wrote: ‘When the whitest girl in the pack is trying to use the discrimination card when she was interrupted by a #poc Face with tears of joy or Loudly crying face?! #TheBachelorAU.

‘Zoe, a white girl, is claiming discrimination for being a redhead against Areeba, a POC. Is this what privilege looks like? I’m so confused?’

Zoe is acting like she’s being discriminated against because she’s got red hair whilst she’s bullying one of the few POC in the house. Get the hell out of here with that attitude hunny.’

‘Zoe getting fired up about the mistreatment of red-heads for the colour of their hair. Where’s that energy for POC who face discrimination for the colour of their skin?’     

Meanwhile, Areeba appeared wholly unfazed by the dramatic confrontation as she chowed down on a sandwich while the fiery redhead continued screaming at her.

Her ‘savage’ blink and you’ll miss it moment was praised by tickled viewers – who commended her for keeping her composure during the shocking showdown.

Rattled by Areeba’s actions, Zoe-Clare couldn’t resist giving her a piece of her mind during the cocktail party, saying: ‘I just want to say what you did was really inappropriate, and it was not okay!’

Despite Zoe-Clare labelling her a ‘mole’, a giggling Areeba thanked her for her ‘feedback’ and continued enjoying her sandwich.

The moment had viewers rolling over in laughter, with one tweeting: ‘Areeba having a sandwich while Zoe Clare talks is a massive vibe.’

'Let me girl eat!' The 25-year-old's 'savage' blink and you'll miss it moment was praised by tickled viewers - who commended her for keeping her composure during the shocking showdown

Another added: ‘Queen Areeba just sitting there laughing and eating her sandwich #TheBachelorAU.’

Someone else echoed: ‘Zoe-clare you did NOT just make Areeba put away her sandwich, let my girl EAT #TheBachelorAU.’

Viewers continued to watch on as Zoe came to the conclusion that the other women didn’t like her because of her hair colour.

She vented: ‘I’m the only redhead in the whole entire house… The only colours are blonde or brunette, and then there’s me. I think that’s exactly why Areeba is targeting me. It’s the red hair. It’s just…it’s not appropriate.

‘What’s wrong with a ranga? Yeah. Do you want me to dye my hair every 10 seconds because you don’t like my colour? I’m so sorry, but this is natural, guys. It’s not going anywhere.’

Her tearful monologue confused many viewers because nobody had mentioned the colour of her hair.

Later in the episode, Zoe-Clare became ‘ill’ and was forced to skip the inaugural rose ceremony.
