Latest Bachelor Jed McIntosh hits back after controversial social media posts he remodeled a decade ago as a young teenager resurface online: ‘This shouldn’t be who I’m’

The Bachelor’s newest leading man Jed McIntosh has been swept up in scandal before his season has even finished filming.

After Channel 10 announced that the 25-year-old was considered one of the three recent suitors to front the upcoming tenth season of the dating series, some controversial Facebook posts from Jed’s teenage years resurfaced.

The posts were made in 2011, when Jed would’ve been around 14-years-old.

In line with the Each day Telegraph, they were leaked by an anonymous Twitter user via a newly-created account.

The posts, that are riddled with spelling and grammatical errors, make reference to ‘smashing p***y’ together with other comments in poor taste.

In a single post, Jed admits to having fun while watching students in 12 months 12 ‘getting p***ed’ and ‘having a perve’ on a female teacher.

Responding to the controversy, Jed told the Each day Telegraph that the old posts not reflected who he’s today as a 25-year-old man.

‘These posts are from over 10 years ago and I don’t have any recollection of creating them,’ he said.

‘As a child we are saying things not understanding the gravity of the language used but I can adamantly say as an adult I don’t agree with using language and sentiment of the posts,’ Jed continued.

‘I actually have the upmost respect for ladies, am a robust advocate for assault victims and would never wish to cause any harm or hurt to anyone.’

Each day Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.  

Response: Responding to the controversy, Jed said that the old posts no longer reflected who he is today as a 25-year-old man

Drummer Jed will front season 10 of The Bachelor alongside skilled basketballer Felix Von Hofe and life coach Thomas Malucelli.

The Bachelor Australia has been slammed for its lack of diversity previously, despite having the primary black Bachelor ever with Blake Garvey on season two in 2014.

The franchise attempted to repair its diversity problem last 12 months by having Fijian pilot Jimmy Nicholson front season nine, while Indigenous youth employee Brooke Blurton was The Bachelorette a couple of months later.

Brooke’s season also made history by being the primary ‘queer’ instalment of the franchise, with each men and girls vying for her heart.
