Multiple people have come forward with stories about ex-Bachelorette star Bill Goldsmith after it was revealed he sent scathing voice memos to Brooke Blurton regarding COVID conspiracy theories.
As reported in episode 127 of the So Dramatic! podcast, Brooke was ambushed on the eve of her Bachelorette finale with conspiracy theories from Bill. The theories attempted to promote misinformation about the coronavirus and the effect it was having on First Nations people in the Northern Territory.
He also sent a string of abusive voice memos to the 26-year-old and her good friend Gabrielle Ebsworth — two Indigenous women, might we remind you — condemning them for being “silent” on the matter.
Since Monday, a number of women have revealed they have also fallen victim to Bill’s disrespectful behaviour.
“He used to send me aggressive voice messages too when I declined his offer to go on a [second] date!!!” one woman wrote. She then added that he also once sent her “unwanted and un-asked for nudes” while she was traveling to work.
Another user revealed she felt “a bit triggered” listening to the voice memos sent by Bill.
“That sneering tone… his clear sense of superiority, it kind of just made me panic.”
In addition, many — and we mean MANY — women have confessed they have either unfollowed or blocked the former reality star.
“I blocked him… from Instagram cuz I was so sick of their toxic male BS popping up in the comment sections [sic],” one Bachelor fan wrote.
“I’m exhausted by this man,” another penned.
“I blocked him. He is an idiot.”
Bachelorette Brooke has since blocked the dating show alum on social media.
Angie Kent Responds To Bill Goldsmith’s COVID Misinformation and “Toxic” Behaviour
“He’s f*cking frightening,” she admitted. “Those voice messages were disgusting. Just another straight cis man throwing his weight around with no remorse whatsoever.
“Imagine thinking that you can speak to two Indigenous women about their culture and what they should be doing about it,” the 31-year-old wrote.
She also added that Bill’s “privilege is frightening”.
“That’s some pure toxic sh*t right there… He’s unstoppable.”
Bill Goldsmith’s History Of Spreading Misinformation
Bill Goldsmith is a well-known anti-vaxxer who has repeatedly spread misinformation via social media.
In 2020, he said “we don’t know what’s in the vaccine” and that “60GHz of 5G shot out of a transmitter has the ability to stop the human body from being able to absorb oxygen”.
Bill also rejected the term “conspiracy theorist” before claiming the term was a theory in itself.
“The term ‘Conspiracy theorist’ was invented by the CIA to disqualify those people who questioned JFKs assassination,” he explained at the time.
We’re beginning to think those who have already blocked him were onto something…
