Emotions flared at the "Love is Blind" reunion special when participants Diamond Jack and Carlton Morton said they received death threats after the hit reality series premiered on Netflix in February. 

"[Carlton] was getting remarks and people attacking him, I'm getting the same thing," Diamond said. "I've gotten death threats as well."

The two were the first engaged couple on the show to end their relationship after Carlton came out to Diamond as bisexual during a trip to Mexico. Carlton had waited to tell Diamond about his sexuality until after they were engaged, which she took that as a violation of trust. 

The discussion quickly devolved into a fight and the end of their brief engagement. 

While the two did not explicitly touch on the nature of the death threats made against them, Diamond implied the ones sent to her had to do with her reaction to Carlton's sexuality — as the two had been discussing how people on the internet called her biphobic. 

"I've been called those names [biphobic, homophobic]," Diamond said. "I was really hurt by that and well why were people seeing it in a totally different perspective."  

Carlton's received death threats for calling Diamond a "b—-" during their heated final argument, which he told her and the rest of the "Love is Blind" cast he deeply regretted. 

"I made a horrible mistake in indirectly calling her out of her name — that's something that should have never happened," Carlton said. 

Carlton apologized again for losing his temper with Diamond and gave her back her engagement ring — which he had to fish out of a resort swimming pool — as a symbol of their friendship.
