  • "Love Is Blind" cast member Chelsea Blackwell faced backlash for saying she got compared to Megan Fox.
  • Fox defended Blackwell, saying that she didn't deserve to be "bullied."

If you tuned into the last season of "Love Is Blind," you might remember Chelsea Blackwell getting some heat for saying that people said that she looked like Megan Fox.

But for the record, Fox herself really isn't mad about it. In fact, she thinks that we should all be a little bit nicer to Blackwell.

"I didn't watch it, but I think in general, no one deserves to get bullied," Fox told E! News. "I don't think she deserved that. I think people went way too hard."

Blackwell starred in season six of "Love Is Blind," and made a comment in the show's appearance-isolating pods that some thought was misleading — basically, she told fellow cast member Jimmy Presnell that people had told her that she looked like Megan Fox.

Blackwell previously told E! News that she had reached out to Fox to apologize, hypothesizing that Fox was probably irritated by the comparison. She also told the publication that she thought it was "silly" how angry fans were about her remark.

In February, she posted a TikTok video saying that it would be a "great time for the people who have ever told me that I resembled her to come forward."

Fox told E! News that when the show was airing, people started to text her about Blackwell's comparison. Even other celebs at events like the Oscars started to ask her if she was tuning into the Netflix reality series. Still, she said that she understood where Blackwell might have been getting the comparisons.

"A hundred thousand percent, people have told her, 'You kind of look like Megan Fox,'" the actor said. "So I believe she's telling the truth and I hope she still has that sparkle in her eye. I hope the world didn't steal it from her."

Fox then quipped that her own "sparkle" was killed two decades ago after getting bullied.

"So I hope that didn't happen to her," she said. "Best wishes and blessings."
