Tweets About Arie Not Leaving After Breaking Up With Becca Are Rightfully Brutal

Ad failed to load

I don't really like The Bachelor. Beyond the fact that I find the premise of a bunch of girls competing for a guy's hand in marriage to be totally offensive, I honestly just find the show kind of boring. I know people tune in for the "drama," but I've never really come across anything on the show that made me want to stay tuned. That is, until last night's episode, when my anger at this season's Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., was so high that the show actually captured my attention. These tweets about Arie not leaving after the breakup with his ex-fiancée Becca Kufrin go to show that I wasn't the only one infuriated.

For those of you who aren't up to date on what happened last night, let me fill you in. (WARNING: Spoilers ahead.) Usually, The Bachelor ends with a proposal. Whomever the Bachelor is gives the final rose to the girl he wants to make his bride, and then, realistically, if they were to break up, a few months later they would do so privately and announce their split to the world via a formal statement. Arie decided to do things a little differently. Instead of opting for a private breakup a few months later (which he should have), he instead, decided to blindside Becca and tell her that he had made the wrong decision — in front of a camera crew. He showed up at her place and told her on unedited television that he actually was in love with Lauren B. And the worst part? After totally shattering her heart in front of the cameras, HE REFUSED TO LEAVE.

Needless to say, after watching the unedited footage last night, Twitter was PISSED.

It's not a matter of taking a hint. She literally TOLD HIM TO LEAVE.

For the love of God, just GET OUT.

You know he was still lurking outside even after he finally "left."

That knock on the door was totally inappropriate.

Just free everyone from this pain and end it all!

Maybe he just thought "leave" and "make yourself at home" meant the same thing...?

He's a Grade-A lurker.

You know he's only sticking around to cheer himself up.

This is not good television. This is emotional torture.

Please just LEAVE!

Twitter is rightfully brutal toward Arie right now.

Didn't his former career prepare him for what to do here?

His behavior can only be described as "selfish."

It may have been minutes, but it felt like he was there for years.

He is a sloth.

Ad failed to load

We were literally all begging you to just LEAVE.

People are estimating "over a million women" were yelling at their TV screens last night.

It was a true test of our nation's patience.

Yeah. This isn't a good look, Arie.

Ad failed to load

Apparently, going viral seemed more important than Becca's dignity, as far as Arie's concerned.

The only real logical explanation is that his Uber was too far away.

While the rest of us are truly furious with Arie for his actions, Becca has taken a very mature approach.

He’s a good person, I don’t think he’s a monster and purposely did this to hurt me and make me feel this way. But it’s just the result of his actions,” the 27-year-old told People. “At the end of the day, I don’t think he thought through everything of how ending things with Lauren would be, how being engaged to me would be and what breaking up with me and going back to her would be. I don’t think he thought it through, but I don’t think he did it maliciously to break my heart.”

So, yeah, she's kinder than all of us combined. Here's to hoping that she'll be the next Bachelorette. OR, better yet, that she leaves The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise behind once and for all and finds real love.
