Clayton Echard girlfriend Susie Evans, annoyed by Bachelorette digs

The former "Bachelorette" season 19 premiere Monday included multiple digs at Clayton Echard's girlfriend, Susie Evans, who admitted she was "annoyed"

Evans, 28, said on Tuesday's podcast "Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe"

We can laugh at ourselves, we can laugh at Clayton, we can laugh at ourselves

As well, I am concerned if this will open up the floodgates of hate and stuff again

Clayton, however, was definitely going with the flow

Quite a few of the men in the new season which stars Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia  criticized Echard, 29, for telling Windey, 31, and Recchia, 26, last year that he loved them and slept with both women

He explained that despite having a "muck" season, he is now happy with Evans because "of this entire environment"

Echard received support from other former Bachelor Nation figures, including Katie Thurston and "Grocery Store" Joe Amabile
