'The Bachelorette' star Rachel Lindsay slams former 'Bachelor' contestant after racist tweet

Rachel Lindsay, the current star of "The Bachelorette," continued to win over fans on Monday night when she called out a former "Bachelor" contestant for an incredibly insensitive and racist tweet.

The 31-year-old attorney was live-tweeting Monday night's episode of "The Bachelorette" when she came across the tweet posted by Leah Block, who was on Ben Higgins' season of "The Bachelor" and the third season of "Bachelor in Paradise."

"I'm sitting here watching @BacheloretteABC and my roommate just sat down on the couch and said 'what is this? @LoveAndHipHop_?'" Block said in the since-deleted tweet. "DEAD."

Lindsay responded quickly writing, "Let me know if she wants to meet Lee ... they sound like they would have a lot in common."

The star, who recently revealed that she is engaged, was alluding to the Lee Garrett, a contestant on her season, whose racist tweets emerged a couple of weeks ago.

"What's the difference between the NAACP and the KKK?" his viral old tweet read. "Wait for it...One has the sense of shame to cover their racist a– faces."

Rachel calling out Block for her insensitive post was just one in a long string of replies she fired off during Monday night's episode of her show. She replied "dead" to pal Alexis Waters' tweet that read, "I could probably punt Lee," and told another Twitter user who called the show "so so boring so far this entire season" to "turn the channel."

Lindsay's willingness to stick up for herself is part of what's winning her so many additional fans this year. After becoming a total fan favorite on Nick Viall's season of "The Bachelor," Lindsay has continued to garner praise for her unapologetic behavior on her season of "The Bachelorette." When DeMario Jackson's alleged girlfriend appeared on the show's second episode, for example, Rachel kicked him off the show on the spot for failing to come up with a coherent explanation for his sketchy past.

Oh yeah, and Leah Block has since deleted her Twitter account.
