There have only been four episodes of Bachelor in Paradise so far, and even though they're packed with drama/Stagecoach regrets, there is still even more drama happening off-screen: Blake Horstmann released his private texts with Caelynn Miller-Keyes in an attempt to defend his character (spoiler: it didn't work), Demi Burnett and BiP alum Tanner Tolbert got into a massive Twitter fight, and now Mike Johnson is out here clapping back at fans on Instagram.

Mike, as you might know, is one of the most beloved men in Bachelor Nation, and he's even being considered as the next Bachelor. And even though he comes across as a super sweet and positive guy, it looks like he's not afraid to call out trolls on Instagram. A couple of days ago, Mike posted some adorable pictures smiling and goofing off, writing, "I learned that smiling and laughing burns calories! Its science people!!"

Super cute, right? Well, one follower decided that this Instagram was the right place to call out Mike for his BiP choices, writing, "WHY DIDN'T YOU PICK TAYSHIA????" (Supposedly referring to the fact that Mike chose Caelynn for his first one-on-one date on BiP). Another follower replied to the comment, writing, "He clearly is not into women of color!?" and it looks like Mike was NOT happy with that. He replied, "you dont know me so I'm not going to scold you but I do know I dont like you with this ignorant ass statement. I love women of color 💯."

Woof! Don't come for Mike on Instagram, people!
