Warning: This post contains spoilers from season 6 of Netflix's Love Is Blind.

Love Is Blind season 6 star Chelsea Blackwell has revealed she reached out to Megan Fox following those now-viral comparison comments.

While in the pods, Blackwell, 31, told Jimmy Presnell, 28, that she had often been told she looked like the Jennifer's Body star, 37. Although Blackwell acknowledged she didn't really see the comparison herself and told Presnell not to "get excited” on the show, she's since admitted on social media that people have been "so mean."

The remarks garnered so much attention, that Blackwell even felt the need to contact Fox herself. "I did reach out to her [Fox], and I was like, 'I'm so sorry I did this to you,' " Blackwell told Entertainment Tonight in an interview published Thursday.

"I'm just waiting for Megan to respond," she added.

After Blackwell and Presnell's first meeting following her pod comments, he said in a confessional interview that, even though he was still attracted to his fiancée, she had "lied" to him about her appearance.

As Blackwell faced criticism online, she took to TikTok and Instagram on Sunday to weigh in on fans' reactions.

Posting a video of herself holding a drink and dancing to Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” she wrote in the caption, “Go on a show for love > get your butt dragged through the trenches.”

Meanwhile, Blackwell's relationship with Presnell might have had its issues, but on Thursday he shared a heartfelt message on Instagram after she confronted him for not kissing her enough in recent episodes.

Alongside a snap of the pair kissing, which was taken the day Blackwell first met his friends Barbara and Maddie, Presnell joked this is "proof I kiss chels 😂."

"On a real note, Chelsea is an amazing person and loves so hard," he added. "Due to time, a lot of the full story this far wasn’t shown. There are reasons we are both fighting for each other and sticking to our promise."

The reality star continued, “It’s easy to make assumptions off of snippets of our relationship, but I wanted y’all to be easy on my girl. At the end of the day, we are all human, and it took a lot of courage for every one of us to put ourselves out there to find our person.”

Episodes 1-9 of Love Is Blind season 6 are now streaming on Netflix, with episode 10 set to drop next Wednesday.
