Current star of “The Bachelorette” Rachel Lindsay and “The Bachelor” alum Leah Block got into a mini war of words after the latter tweeted a racist statement about Lindsay’s suitors.

Block tweeted and quickly deleted something her roommate said as she watched the Monday, June 19, episode of “The Bachelorette” but not before Lindsay issued a slick reply.

Lindsay’s tweet referenced one of her suitors, Lee Garrett, who drew attention in May when racist tweets bashing Black Lives Matter surfaced, while Block’s roommate seemed to be describing the diverse cast on this season of “The Bachelorette.”

After Twitter users got fired up over the tweet, Block said her statement was interpreted the wrong way and Lindsay once again responded.

Block’s Twitter account is no longer active and people have been schooling and mocking her since the tiff began.

Others have applauded Lindsay.
