• Rachel Lindsay received supportive messages from "Bachelor" alums after she deleted her Instagram account
  • Lindsay's husband, Bryan Abasolo, sent his love to her on social media and said he was proud of her
  • Becca Kufrin and Nick Viall called out those who sent hateful messages to Lindsay

"Bachelor" stars rallied behind Rachel Lindsay after she deleted her Instagram account due to the harassment she endured.

The "Bachelorette" star couldn't take the online harassment anymore following her controversial interview with Chris Harrison where the host defended contestant Rachael Kirkconnell's racist actions. Harrison and Kirkconnell both issued apologies after the intense backlash, but "Bachelor" fans also came after Lindsay, leading her to quit Instagram.

Her friends from the "Bachelor" franchise immediately sent their love and showed support for her.

"I love you, I appreciate you, I believe in you and I just wanted to let you know how proud of you I am. Keep going and never stop being you and fighting for what’s right," Lindsay's husband, Bryan Abasolo, wrote on Instagram.

Becca Kufrin also took to social media and shared the same message of support for her former co-star. The reality star explained that she has already said the same words to Lindsay privately but will say it publicly as well because it's an important issue that needs to be addressed.

"To Rachel Lindsay: I love you, I stand by you and I support you in whatever way, shape or form that’s needed," she wrote. "We live in a world where online toxicity, racism, racial insensitivity & ignorance, bullying and cruelty have become a norm. This is simply not okay. For the keyboard warriors, get a clue. Channel that energy for actual positive change."

Kufrin also called out the people who directed their ire toward Lindsay. "If you are one of the people that have sent any hate or cruelty her way, you should be embarrassed and need to be better. Nastiness ain’t a cute look," she concluded.

Nick Viall also defended Lindsay, who competed on his season on "The Bachelor." He called out those who sent hateful messages to his former co-star as a show of support for Harrison.

"It’s sad that this even needs to be said, but Chris Harrison is in the position he is in because of what he said, not because of anything Rachel did. If you want to support Chris while he is down, you should be able to do that without showing hate to anyone else," Viall wrote on Instagram story. "I realized that this is obvious to most people reading this, but if you are one of the people who have sent hateful or racist comments to Rachel please take a serious look at what's in your heart. Your priorities are seriously out of whack."

JoJo Fletcher was also sad after learning that Lindsay was forced to deactivate her Instagram account due to bullying. The "Bachelorette" alum encouraged fans to "come together, and be kinder to one another." For those who are on the wrong side, Fletcher has a message, "Do better. Be Better."
