"The things some people do to stay relevant... let our Queen live and let's embrace her on this journey," Tyler shared on Twitter. "Very few have a clue what it's like to be in the leads shoes. Our Queen is imperfectly perfect like us all. Don't Christians claim that only god should do the judging-James 4:12."

The general contractor continued, "This is also the same guy that keeps tagging me in his IG post and I have never spoken to him... that ain't it buddy."

James, however, didn't exactly back down. The former Bachelorette contestant—who competed on JoJo Fletcher's season, responded to Tyler's tweet with another message.

"I was just commenting on what I saw. You have a way bigger following than me and can roast me if you want and I deserve some of that for sure," he shared. "Hannah's the coolest - just disagreed with her take on 'I do what I want' as a Christian. Also - be careful who you call 'your' queen."

Tyler added, "Our queen."

While Hannah is staying out of this Twitter exchange, she is aware that her season has been the topic of discussion.

And while some may not agree with her decisions or actions, The Bachelorette refuses "to feel shame."

"I refuse to not stand in the sun. I refuse to feel shame. I refuse to believe the lies and evil that flood my comments. I am standing firm in believing that maybe God wants to use a mess like me to point to His goodness and grace. But dang, it's hard," she wrote on Instagram. "The amount of hate I and the men on this journey with me receive...it's chilling to know so many people want to spread hurt so recklessly. We all fall short of the glory of God...we just happen to do it on national television." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

She added, "Thank you to those who continue to support me and my guys as we open our hearts to each other, and in turn...you! We appreciate you and your kindness!"

The Bachelorette airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. only on ABC.
