The Bachelorette star Hannah Brown is facing serious backlash after sharing video of herself singing the N-word. And now, members of Bachelor Nation are weighing in.

During an Instagram live yesterday, the 25-year-old reality star dropped the slur while rapping along to DaBaby song "Rockstar."

As time progressed through the live broadcast, Brown began to notice criticism for using the word from fans in the comments. "I did? I'm so sorry..." Brown said. "I was singing the—I'm so sorry."

At one point, she even suggested it may have been her brother, Patrick Brown. When viewers continued to confront her, Brown addressed it again.

"I really don't think I said that word," she said. "I don't think I said that word, but now I'm like, oh god. I'd never use that word. I've never called anybody that. We don't say that word....So, you know what, I'm going to stay here, and y'all can think I said whatever I did or think I'm something I'm not, but I'm not that."

Following the backlash and criticism surrounding her actions on social media, Brown took to her Instagram Stories to address the situation.

"I owe you all a major apology," the reality TV personality's statement on Instagram Stories began. "There is no excuse and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt I have caused. I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better."

Even with the apology, many members of Bachelor Nation are sounding off on the controversy. Take a look at who is speaking out in our gallery below
