Captain Lee Rosbach from Below Deck got into a spicy exchange with a fan on Twitter but refused to go to war with the person.

Rosbach and Twitter user “Reality Bliss” disagreed about the crews’ night on the town. Deckhand James Hough was disappointed when the crew didn’t want to have a blowout bar night in between charters. Some fans were let down that the crew hasn’t really let loose yet either. “I agree with James,” Reality Bliss tweeted. “They work hard and should enjoy their time off. They’re young. Live it up.”

But Rosbach disagreed with Reality Bliss, insisting that the crew wasn’t on a vacation and their job should be their priority. “Really, give me a break, go get a job that caters to that, thats not a job, its a vaca, and you get two of those a yr. if you’re lucky,” Rosbach replied. “Do your job, or move down the road. Period. It’s not a holiday.”

Captain Lee disagrees that nights off should be a party

“Caters to what? Having fun on your nights off? That’s their personal time,” Reality Bliss challenged Rosbach.

“Your nights off should not bleed over into you being on deck on time the next morning in good shape to do a good day’s work,” Rosbach replied. “I do, and I don’t expect them to do what I don’t do. I show up and on time and do my job. As they should. No more no less. Can’t cut it, leave.

The viewer still wanted to engage with Rosbach. “When has that happened this season? Is something coming up? What happened last season isn’t this season. The deck crew last season was being led off the boat by a bosun wrecking DJ equipment while drunk. Eddie is nothing like him.”

Rosbach added, “You are right, it is their time, but they still represent the yacht, which is their home and place of employment. And when their own time carries over to their work time, yeah, that’s out of line, and if you don’t want to play by the rules you knew were in place, leave.”

The exchange becomes confrontational?

Rosbach was clearly trying to shut down the exchange, but the viewer seemed to continued to tweet and come for him.

“Obviously you’re looking to be confrontational because I tweeted an observation during a live show siding with James over Shane about talking about work on their night out and wanting to stay longer,” Reality Bliss tweeted to Rosbach. “I’m always respectful towards you. That privileged has been lost.”

But Rosbach didn’t take the bait. “I’m good with that, do what you feel is necessary for you to feel good. Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your day. No bad feelings here.”
