MAFS groom Harrison Boon has been caught being racist towards international tourists in a 2018 post on Instagram.

MAFS groom Harrison Boon’s 2023 is clearly not off to a good start. As we saw on the MAFS premiere, Harrison was revealed to have been cheating on his on-screen bride Bronte Schofield with The Bachelor star Abby Miller – minutes after the two got married, in fact.

Now, as reported by So Dramatic!, Harrison is being slammed for racist remarks he made against international tourists on social media in 2018.

According to Daily Mail Australia, in a post that has since been deleted, Harrison went on a racist tirade against international tourists while on a trip to NSW’s Blue Mountains. He claimed that Asian tourists ‘coughing’ and ‘spitting’’ruined the experience’ for him. “

Harrison said: “This place would be so majestic if it weren’t for the hordes of Asian tourists hack coughing and then spitting their lung butter onto the tourist-ridden footpath below where people were posing for family photos. Unfortunately ruining the experience for me. But still. Pretty sweet views.”

Boon also interacted with fans who supported him in his comments. Replying to a fan who called tourists ‘animals’, Harrison replied: “No way bro you too? They full act like animals aye [sic].”

This isn’t the first time Boon has raised eyebrows for his problematic views. In 2020, he came under fire for sharing a video claiming white-privilege wasn’t real.

More recently, Harrison falsely claimed that ‘dead babies’ were used to make vaccines.

“This is not a conspiracy theory it’s a fact. Dead babies are used to make vaccines.” He wrote in July 2020, adding: “Does it make you uncomfortable? Good.”

In other posts, Harrison also claimed that being pro-vaccine ‘is to be pro-fascism,’ and that the Australian government was going to ‘hold us hostage until a vaccine can be mandated.’
