Zac Clark is defending Tayshia Adams from the haters.

On Instagram Wednesday, Adams, 31, uploaded photos of herself wearing a blue bikini at the beach. While most of the comments praised the former Bachelorette, one took a shot at her former relationship with Clark.

"I think you need to get over yourself. Remember when you dated @zwclark and didn't constantly post selfies and boobs and bikinis of yourself?" the commenter wrote.

"Yeah get back to that honey @tayshia because nobody cares at [sic] how fancy you think you are," the user continued. "You're still a girl from a reality show with a guy who cheated on you."

Clark, 38, responded to the commenter directly: "Enough is enough."

"One of the problems with social media is it gives people like you a voice and unwarranted power. The truth is, we see this s—-, I see this s—-," he continued. "It is hard to avoid and it is just not nice, especially when you have no idea what you are talking about/you just make s—- up. I struggle to see why you would be mean for no reason, being kind is so much easier, I promise."

Then, Adams' ex-fiancé turned the conversation to her. "So @tayshia f—- the noise and keep doing your thing," he said.

Adams first addressed the breakup news that December when she co-hosted the Men Tell All episode of Katie Thurston's season. At the time, Adams tearfully left the stage after speaking about the split to then-co-host Kaitlyn Bristowe.

"All in all, all I have to say is that I'm heartbroken," Adams said. "But we tried really hard and I still love him very much. And I'm not sure that the future holds."
