Matt James no longer likes to share.
On March 19, the former "Bachelor" frontman has wiped his Instagram clean on the heels of his breakup with Rachael Kirkconnell. His Instagram Story, however, featured a screenshot of a tweet that simply read, "3/21/21."
While it's not exactly known what the meaning of the date is, several of Matt's 76,000 followers believe it refers to the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, which is observed on March 21 of every year.
The reality TV star seems to be having a hard time as he deals with his breakup. Earlier in the week he implied that he was looking into therapy to help process recent events in his life.
Matt, the first Black lead of "The Bachelor," picked Rachael on the season 25 finale of the ABC show, but he didn't propose. Still, he said he was committed to Rachael and envisioned her as his wife.
However, not long after the finale was filmed (but before it aired,) three-year-old social media images surfaced that showed Rachael at an Antebellum South-themed party. She also "liked" other images that contained a Confederate flag, and she posted Qanon conspiracy theories online.
On the After The Final Rose special, Matt said he and Rachael were no longer together and acknowledged that the past racist acts were the reason. While on the special, Matt said, "It's heartbreaking. If you don't understand that something like that is problematic in 2018, there's a lot of me that you won't understand. It's as simple as that."
Rachael acknowledged that she was still in love with Matt, but he essentially squashed any hopes of a reconciliation and said she needed to confront her racist actions and work on herself.
"When I questioned our relationship, it was in the context of you not fully understanding my Blackness and what it means to be a Black man in America," he told her. "It broke my heart because this is the last conversation I thought we'd be having. I didn't sign up to have this conversation."
