CHARLOTTE, NC (Joe Marusak/The Charlotte Observer) - Did former "Bachelorette" star Emily Maynard of Charlotte shade current Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. on Instagram?
National entertainment magazines are reporting that fans of the show suspect Maynard, now Emily Maynard Johnson, was subtly shading Luyendyk when she posted an adorable photo of her family on Instagram. She included the comment, "Times change and thank God for that."
Her post has received 56,000 likes in two days.
"Emily Maynard Subtly Shades Arie Luyendyk Jr. on Instagram and Fans Are Living for It," read a headline in Life & Style magazine this week.
Life & Style cited several fan comments in reaction to Maynard's Instagram post, including: "The ultimate mic drop. Boom!!" "Yassssr Emily!" and "Definitely dodged a bullet there, sister."
One woman on Instagram took Maynard's post a bit more lightheartedly, however: "I thought you were talking about the time changing this weekend," the woman said with a smiling emoji.
Luyendyk was a day away from proposing to Maynard when she broke his heart on her season of "The Bachelorette" in 2012. Maynard was the woman of Luyendyk's dreams, according to ABC. Maynard, however, selected Jef Holm over Luyendyk on the show.
