Her ex-boyfriend Tyler Cameron is now coming to her defense, but is also not excusing what she did.

"In these moments, you have the opportunity to bury someone or lift them up. We need to lift HB up from this," Cameron wrote on Instagram. "She is learning and growing just like every single one of us. Love rids hate. Hate only makes more hate. Let's learn and lift each other up with love."

"Y'all need to look at the comments. We have a long ways to go on this issue and a lot to learn. If you find yourself getting defensive, you are part of the problem," he continued, addressing those people who are defending her use of the word.

"This is not about dragging HB. This is about using your platform for reasons like this. So we can educate those who don't get it. This is bigger than HB. This is a societal problem," he continued. "Those that say it's part of the song and that they can sing it are so out of touch. HB is not racist. I know. But blaming the rap artist is not the answer. Educate yourself and listen to what Rachel has to say about the word b— and hopefully it'll start to click for you."

"I owe you all a major apology. There is no excuse, and I will not justify what I said. I have read your messages and seen the hurt that I have caused. I own it all. I am terribly sorry and know that whether in public or private, this language is unacceptable. I promise to do better," Brown said about the incident.

Rachel Lindsay, who is the only black "Bachelorette" ever, commented on the situation as well.

"You should feel disgusted when you say that word. You should feel uncomfortable. That word has so much weight and history behind it. If you don't know, please do yourself a favor and educate yourself on that word.

"That word was used to make black people feel less than... and every time you use that word and you're not black, you give that word power, and that is why it is wrong. Non-black people should not feel OK about saying the word n-----. It's wrong."
