“Bachelor” Album Leah Block Deletes Twitter After Being Called Out By “The Bachelorette” Star

SMH… We knew when ABC announced their first black “Bachelorette” we knew it was bound to attract some negativity from bottom feeders… And it looks like yet another reality star is exposing their true “racist” clolors as Monday’s episode brought out the ugly side of Leah Block, a “Bachelor” alum who had nerve to tweet some bullish…

As you guys probably know by now Rachel Lindsay’s season 13 of The Bachelorette features the most diverse cast in the show’s history, well apparently that didn’t sit too well with Block, who competed on Ben Higgins’ season 20 of The Bachelor.

According to US Weekly reports, Block compared the ABC dating show to Love & Hip Hop, which has a predominantly black cast.

“I’m sitting here watching @BacheloretteABC and my roommate just sat down on the couch and said, ‘What is this? @LoveAndHipHop_? DEAD,” she wrote in the since-deleted tweet on Monday, June 19.

Maybe Leah thought she was slick and Rachel wouldn’t see her tweet — but she did and she made sure to respond directly to it.

Lindsay clapped back on Twitter. “Let me know if she wants to meet Lee…they sound like they would have a lot in common #ihavetimetoday,” she replied. After the backlash, Block deleted her entire Twitter account.

You guys will probably recall that Lee Garrett is the contestant whose hateful tweets were exposed a few weeks ago…

How are all these undercover racists ending up on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette?”

“The Bachelorette” Host Chris Harrison previously responded to Garrett’s controversy and said the franchise did not know about the tweets until the media reports surfaced. “For those asking, no, of course we didn’t know about the offensive tweets from Lee’s account,” he tweeted on June 1. “None of us were aware of them Very unfortunate.”
