A Minnesota lawmaker has drafted a bill banning the star of this season’s “The Bachelor” from the state following the show’s contentious finale episode.

State Rep. Drew Christensen (R) tweeted a photo of the bill, which states that Minnesotans have the “right to live free” from Arie Luyendyk Jr.

“The state of Minnesota hereby adopts a policy of zero tolerance of Arie Luyendyk, Jr. from season 22 of the 'The Bachelor,'” the bill reads. “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."

Christensen had originally told his Twitter followers that he would write a bill banning Luyendyk if his tweet got 1,000 retweets. By Thursday, Christensen had accumulated more than 11,500 retweets.

Luyendyk came under fire from fans of the show after he offered the final rose to Minnesota-native Rebecca Kufrin, seen as the front-runner throughout the season. He then broke off the engagement and instead proposed to runner-up Lauren Burnham in the second part of the show’s two-episode finale.

Christensen also vowed to invite the scorned Becca as his guest to Minnesota’s State of the State address in exchange for 10,000 retweets.
