Below Deck Mediterranean star Captain Sandy Yawn has been at the center of an online debate after she fired stew Camille Lamb without consulting Captain Lee Rosbach first. This occurred while she was filling in for him on season 10 of Below Deck.
While engaging in a live-tweeting session during the previous episode of the show, Captain Lee revealed that Captain Sandy showed a “lack of procedure and respect” when not clueing him in about her decision to let Camille go, though he insists he would have done the same.
“Had I been replacing Capt Sandy on her boat temporarily and felt the necessity to fire one of her crew, I would have called her first to let her know what I was doing and why. I agree with her decision, just not how she went about it,” Captain Lee tweeted after the episode aired.
Now, it seems Captain Sandy is responding to Captain Lee’s critique of her leadership style. She tweeted a meme on Tuesday, January 24, about taking the high road when someone treats you poorly.
“If someone treats you bad, just remember that there is something wrong with them, not you. Normal people don’t go around destroying other people,” the meme read.

The next day, Captain Sandy tweeted another telling quote that read, “Hurt people hurt others, but luckily healed people heal others…”

Sandy’s posts did not go unnoticed by avid Below Deck fans, who were quick to try and make a connection between the timing of Captain Sandy’s tweets and Captain Lee’s remarks.
“I hope that’s not aimed at Captain Lee,” one fan commented.
And apparently, according to Captain Sandy, it’s not. She responded, “Not aimed at anyone,” and, “it’s a meme, not about any one person.”
Still, some don’t buy Sandy’s assertion that the posts aren’t personal.
“Pretty sure this is another male/female captain issue,” another fan hypothesized. “Captain Lee didn’t support Captain Sandy and now he’s going public for the jugular. Nice way to repay a favor. Not!”
A third user had Captain Sandy’s back regarding the supposed non-issue.
“Yes Captain Sandy! I didn’t like how Captain Lee was trashing your decision all night on social media. This should have been a personal call to you if he felt so strongly [about it].”
Captain Lee has gone on record saying the only reason he went public with his remarks about Sandy is because she was the one who made the decision to fire Camille on national television.
“She did it on tv in front of how many people without consulting me. That doesn’t sound very private to me at all,” he responded to a fan on Twitter.
Captain Lee will be returning to the St. David and catching up with Captain Sandy later this season, which was teased in the midseason trailer for Below Deck.
Below Deck airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
