'Bachelorette' Andi Dorfman responds to criticism over Eric Hill treatment

Andi Dorfman seems to have admitted that she could have handled the Eric Hill situation better. On Thursday, May 5, Andi posted a message on her Twitter account about learning from mistakes and not being perfect. "I Fall, I Rise, I Make Mistakes...I Learn...I'm Human, I'm Not Perfect But I'm Thankful," states the message that Andi posted.

It's pretty clear that Andi's message is in response to all of the criticisms she has received over the way she sent Eric home on the last episode of "The Bachelorette." Eric, who previously had a great one-on-one date with Andi, apparently was getting confused over Andi's feelings for him and wanted clarification. Eric asked Andi what happened to the girl he had a great date with since she has had a "poker face" since then. Andi took offense and was so upset that she broke down crying and sent Eric home before the rose ceremony.

Andi's treatment of Eric, a fan favorite, has received even more attention because, as viewers were made aware of even before the show premiered, he died a few weeks later in a paragliding accident. Eric's premature death has likely prompted even more people to criticize Andi, and to do so more strongly, for what they consider was a very rude response.

Several fans responded to Andi's tweet to tell her to stay strong and that they still love her. One person wrote that he thought she handled the situation perfectly and that people are more vicious on the Internet than they would be in real life.

Another person who has defended Andi is Nikki Ferrell, who became very good friends with her during their time on "The Bachelor." Nikki tweeted that she wished she could protect Andi from everyone's rude and hateful remarks. She added that people should stop passing judgement and instead be more loving.

Unfortunately for Nikki Ferrell, she didn't receive a lot of positive responses. Many people wrote that Andi Dorfman completely overreacted. They pointed out that her behavior was hypocritical since she let loose on Juan Pablo Galavis but when Eric Hill told her how he felt, she immediately showed him the door. One person was so disgusted that she wrote that she won't watch "The Bachelorette" anymore.
