Burnett told The Sun Colton had to be “held accountable” for his behavior towards his ex before he was “celebrated” for his exit.
“I know what it feels like and I’m very proud of him for it. But I want to make sure everyone respects Cassie who suffered a lot and was hurt a lot by Colton, ”she said.
“I know she never would have filed that restraining order unless she had another choice. It must have been terrifying to her.
And I don’t want anyone to forget that. We can congratulate Colton on his courage and exit, but he has to be held accountable for what he did to Cassie.
