A vicious revelation made by a copywriter led to her being sent home by Matt James on “The Bachelor.” Anna Redman caused quite a stir recently after accusing fellow Chicago contestant Brittany Galvin was an alleged escort.

According to Hollywood Life, Anna had gotten word that the 23-year-old was an escort and that she may have had a transactional relationship with wealthy men. Brittany unsurprising denied the rumor and ended up getting worried since the claim could leave a tainted mark on her life.

On Monday, James decided to send Anna home after sharing the vicious rumor. This comes not long after James had conferred with Katie Thurston on the matter and came up with the expected verdict, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“Anna said something that was out of character, but the damage has been done. I’ve seen how words can affect people. I owe it to these women to create a safe space for them, and that’s what I’m going to do,” James said.

It was pretty clear that the accusation stands to affect Galvin. She admits that she was caught off guard but maintains that she and people back home know that such is not true. She is however worried about what people may think of her, especially her mother who watches the show.

“This could ruin my entire life. I didn’t sign up to be bullied and harassed. I signed up to find love and to meet you finally. I was so excited when I first came here. I’ve never dealt with bullying before. It hurts a lot. It really hurts,” Galvin stated.

Redman has since curtailed, making her Twitter account private and her LinkedIn page being taken down. She admitted on Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor” that she felt horrible about what she said about Galvin.

“I just can’t believe this happened. I’m just really disappointed in myself, and that’s what it comes down to. Matt’s a great guy. He doesn’t need to be with someone who could come out of their mouth. One dumb decision — it’s going to take you down. I just want to go cry in a shower,” Galvin said.
