The comments section was filled with love and support for Lexi, with several users agreeing that the harassment and hate speech are unacceptable.
Season 6 of Below Deck Mediterranean has been filled with drama, mostly due to Lexi Wilson and chef Mathew Shea. They have each pushed the crew to their limits because of their individual actions and dislike of each other.
