An ex-contestant from "The Bachelor" deleted her Twitter account after Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay called out her offensive tweet during last night's episode.

Leah Block, who competed for Ben Higgins last year and then returned for Season 3 of "Bachelor in Paradise," tweeted that this season of "The Bachelorette" (with the series first-ever black Bachelorette) was more like the VH1 series "Love & Hip Hop."

Bachelor Nation didn't take kindly to that and Lindsay herself responded by asking if Block was "watching with Lee," referring to one of her suitors, Lee Garrett, who's tweeted far more offensive comments, including comparing the NAACP to the KKK.

Block immediately deleted the tweet, then said that people had taken it "WAY out of context," that the comment was actually her roommate's, and that "[neither] my roommate nor I am racist." Finally, she deleted her entire account.

Of course, the screenshots of her tweet live on.

Last week, Block weighed in on the "Bachelor in Paradise" scandal, in which she called the producers and the show "trashy."
