Chad's kind of a dick. But we all know that.

ABC is being criticized for giving a platform to abusers like Josh Murray. It makes abusive relationships seem normal, and puts the lives of women at risk.

Critics say giving Chad Johnson and Murray, two men who show major red flags for abuse, a platform to redeem themselves is immoral.

There are huge signs of abuse. The show makes these things seem normal. Even for a show that so unashamedly chases ratings, this seems like a new low.

"Women will always need to learn the reality of abusive men for themselves because of the stories we tell about abusers. We romanticize their violence as coming from a place of pain that only the right woman can heal. It breaks my heart to watch a franchise I enjoy reinforce the narrative that kept me in a dangerous relationship when I was younger. Giving screen time to these men puts blood on your hands."

Some frame how 'Bachelor in Paradise' shows abuse differently. "Even here, even within this context of no context, violence and abuse and misogyny would not be condoned."

Just showing abuse like this could be dangerous. ABC is getting too close to the edge of what's acceptable or should be done by showing this behavior on TV.

Why even invite someone with allegations of abuse?

Some people side with Josh, but the signs overwhelmingly point to him being an abuser. Andi Dorfman wrote about the abuse she encountered with him.
