The Wild Reason Why A Bachelorette Fan Just Apologized To Clare Crawley

There has been so much confusion and mystery surrounding Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette, that fans are already well aware of the nutty time which is (supposedly) yet to come as we watch her try to find love on national television. But, as the episodes continue to roll out every week, many of us have begun to pick apart everything we see and hear to try and divine the truth from the intriguing situations which have been presented to us. But, because of that, one Bachelorette fan has just apologized to Clare for a wild reason.

If you're keeping up with The Bachelorette, you might remember a moment from this week, where Clare was having some alone time conversation with Chasen Nick. When he shared that his younger years were like that of a hermit crab because he was alone all the time, Clare responded by noting that she never went to her high school prom, and no one asked her, adding, "Nobody even knew who I was in high school. I was just invisible, I think. I felt invisible."

Well, a fan thought she had the inside details on this way-back story of Clare's, and took to social media with a yearbook photo of her now-husband and Clare at a high school dance, claiming that her husband actually took the reality star to prom. After a quick and fierce rebuttal from Clare, though, that fan has now publicly apologized on Instagram (via Us Weekly), saying:

I would like to say I miss understood [sic]. Clare did not go to prom with my husband. It was another dance and I apologize for my error.

I'm sure Clare appreciates the apology, especially considering how short and to the point it is. She probably also enjoys the fact that this fan made an effort to address one of her main points of contention with the original claim that Clare was lying about her high school experience, which our Bachelorette talked about when she replied to that first post to defend herself:

lol actually not. You do know there is [sic] more dances in high school that are NOT prom? Turns out it's just someone digging up old photos. (why she keeps her husband's old dance pics I'm not sure). I went to a new school senior year and in fact DID NOT go to prom just like I said.

Basically, this quick-to-judge member of Bachelor Nation has realized and admitted that just because her husband is in an official school dance picture with Clare, that doesn't mean that he took her to prom, just some other high school dance, of which there tend to be many at your typical school.

I don't say this often, mostly because I generally don't get a chance to, but it's nice to have some dust stirred up in Bachelor Nation, and not have it turn into a big, depressing deal. Someone realized the error of their ways and made amends without the immediate threat of personal cancellation, you guys. This sounds like a great time to celebrate with the adult beverage of your choice, while mulling over what might happen next on The Bachelorette!

We can all see what's up next for Clare when The Bachelorette continues, Tuesdays on ABC at 8 p.m. EST, but for more to watch, check out our fall premiere schedule!
