Following Monday night's episode, "Bachelorette" star Rachel Lindsay responded to racist comments made by former "Bachelor" star Leah Block.

After receiving backlash from Twitter users for tweeting out her racist remark, Block deleted the tweet as well as her Twitter account.

Fans and alumni of the "Bachelor" franchise — also known as Bachelor Nation — live tweet the show in its entirety weekly. However, Block's tweet didn't fare well with Lindsay and her loyal supporters on Twitter.

"'I'm sitting here watching @BacheloretteABC and my roommate just sat down on the couch and said, 'What is this? @LoveAndHipHop_?' DEAD," Block wrote Monday in the now-deleted tweet. The tweet also featured a laughing emoji.

Lindsay, who is the first black person to fill the titular role, decided to take the time to respond to Block's tweet on Twitter.

"Let me know if she wants to meet Lee," Lindsay wrote. "They sound like they would have a lot in common #ihavetimetoday."

Block reportedly deleted her Twitter after Lindsay made her public response, according to Us Weekly.

Following the incident, fans of Lindsay backed her up on Twitter with a number of supportive tweets.

Block's Twitter comment followed an episode that featured race heavily. During Monday night's episode, Lindsay explained the "pressures" she feels being a black woman and how they've escalated since she's become the first black lead in the franchise.

"You don't understand the pressures that are going to come with all of this. I'm going to get emotional [about] the pressures that I feel about being a black woman and what that is," Rachel said while crying, according to Entertainment Tonight. "I get pressure from so many different ways, being in this position, and I did not want to get into all of this tonight. I already know what people are going to say about me, and judge me for the decisions that I'm making, and I'm going to be the one who has to deal with that, and nobody else."

Racial tensions also proved to be problematic last night for Lindsay's selected men. Contestant Lee Garrett — who has earned the title of "villain" for season 13 — had initiated fights with fellow contestants.

According to Entertainment Tonight, fellow contestant Dean Unglert commented on Garrett's habit, saying, "The only people that I've seen Lee pick fights with have been not the people he's used to seeing on a daily basis from a cultural perspective."

Next week's episode is set to further explore race issues head-on as contestants Kenny King and Garrett prepare to duke it out.

After racist tweets from Garrett's Twitter account surfaced, his casting has proved to be controversial amongst fans. However, the network hadn't learned of Garrett's tweets until after his casting decision was final, according to Variety.

In one of his most controversial tweets, Garrett compared the NAACP to the KKK. He wrote, "What's the difference between the NAACP and the KKK? Wait for it...One has the sense of shame to cover their racist a-- faces."

Based off of Lindsay's Monday night tweet, it's safe to assume that Lee will not make an appearance at this season's final rose ceremony.
