Many took issue with her calling him out, so she defended herself by tweeting, "people are really going to call me “immature” for calling Arie out yet he’s the man who dm’d MULTIPLE exes and blindsided/broke up with his fiancé in front of a full camera crew...?????"

Her Twitter followers showed up to support her, as it turns out many shared her sentiments toward the entire situation.

"Everything you’ve said since WTA has only made me MORE Team Bekah. You’re brilliant, articulate, and anything *but* immature. Speak even louder, sis," one fan wrote.

" 'Maturity?' you're being candid and honest, something this particular 36-yr-old man is clearly not. Age has 0 to do [with] it," another said.
