After the pilot shared on Instagram on New Year's Eve that he and the Bachelor season 24 standout had parted ways after nine months together, Bachelor in Paradise's Blake Horstmann offered a message of support that one user did not appreciate.
"Keep your head up brotha!" Blake wrote. This led a fan of the franchise to reply, "this is a stupid thing to say to someone."
It's unclear why the individual was bothered by the comment from the runner-up on Becca Kufrin's season of The Bachelorette. Clearly, Blake didn't understand the criticism either, and he made his feelings known.
"what you said is a stupid thing to say to someone..." Blake replied to the commenter.
What is clear is that fans have clearly felt invested in Peter and Kelley's romance following his brief engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss and subsequent split from runner-up Madison Prewett.
Kelley took to Instagram on Sunday, Jan. 3 to offer her feelings on the split. "Unfortunately him and I are in two different stages of our lives and saw our future paths differently," she wrote.
Peter had posted on Dec. 31 that the relationship "simply didn't work out in the end." This was stunning news for fans who had cheered when the pilot announced on Dec. 22 that the pair decided to move to New York City together.
