“I want to first start by saying Rachel, I owe you an apology. I would like to first start there.

You delivered all of that and more and I did not,”
Furthermore, Becca went on to discuss her relationship status with Garrett. She revealed:
“For those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is that I don’t know. I can’t give anything more than that.”

“That’s really the best I can give you at this point.”
The controversial post of Garrett
On 4 June 2020, Garrett uploaded a photo on his Instagram. It was a black square in the midst of which was a thin blue line. It was meant to be an indication of his support to the white cops who are allegedly brutal and inhumane towards the black people.
Garrett put up a long caption. In it, he said that he just could not sit back and not show his support and solidarity to his many friends and family members who are part of the law enforcement in the USA. He was for the people of all races and colors who represent the thin blue line, he said.
Becca’s initial response to Garrett’s post
Earlier, Becca had shown her support for her fiance, Garrett. She had said:
“Garrett is my fiancé and I love him and to his core, I believe that he is a good person. I don’t align with and I don’t agree with his social media post.”
“I don’t think he meant it in a malicious way. I do think it was tone-deaf, and it was the wrong time and message and sentiment.”
Becca went on to explain that one of Garrett’s friends is a police officer and he suffered a shot on his back and head in the riots following George Floyd’s death. But now she added that she too feels that Black Lives Matter.
She told Rachel:
