A Minnesota state representative is apparently so piqued at “The Bachelor” star Arie Luyendyk Jr. for jilting Minneapolis publicist Becca Kufrin after proposing to her on air that he has drafted a bill saying Luyendyk is unwelcome in his state.

Drew Christensen (R-Prior Lake), 24, tweeted, “I’m a man of my word—here’s the bill banning Arie.” Attached were two photos of HF 3443, “Freedom from Arie Luyendyk, Jr.” The bill states: “The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of The Bachelor. It is state policy that every person in the state has a right to live free from the presence of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. in the state.” He formally introduced the bill Thursday.

Neither Luyendyk, 36, nor Kufrin, 27, who lives in the Minneapolis suburb of Prior Lake, has commented on social media.

As Part 1 of the season finale aired Monday evening, Christensen tweeted, “If this gets a thousand retweets I’ll author a bill banning Arie from Minnesota.” He quickly reached his threshold that same night, and as of Thursday evening the post had more than 11,500 retweets.
