Below Deck star Captain Lee Rosbach has revealed he is recovering from spinal surgery.

The news comes hot on the heels of Below Deck Season 9 kicking off without Captain Lee. Captain Sean Meagher stepped in for the stud of the sea, earning mixed reviews from Below Deck fans.

Season 9 of Below Deck took a turn this week when chief stew Heather Chase said the N-word, and deckhand Rayna Lindsey spoke to her about it. Although Heather issued a public apology, Below Deck fans are ready to cancel her.

Twitter was buzzing after the most recent Below Deck Season 9 episode and the racism storm. One user slammed Captain Lee for keeping silent on the topic.

The captain clapped back at the person, where he shared his latest medical issue.

“Nicki, you should know all the facts before you spout off, but I guess facts don’t mean that much to you, and what’s worse is claiming you know when you don’t. Just a FYI I have been in a hospital bed all week recovering from a serious spinal surgery. Do I owe you an explanation?” Captain Lee tweeted.
