"It's honestly scary how manipulative Shanae is like is she secretly a serial killer," a fan tweeted during Monday night's The Bachelor episode.
Clayton retweeted the post and added the comment, "Lock her up! She's killed all my credibility already."
Clayton has since deleted his comment, but screenshots of the exchange have continued circulating online.
Shanae has been involved in drama for most of The Bachelor's currently-airing season. Shanae mockedElizabeth Corrigan's ADHD disorder and told Clayton that Elizabeth had intentionally ignored her and was "fake" and "two-faced."
Shanae went on to allege that Elizabeth was a "bully" and "a liar" and had created a "toxic" environment for her. Shanae then celebrated the moment when Clayton denied Elizabeth a rose and sent her home.
On the latest episode of The Bachelor, Jill Chin said Shanae had been "tormenting" and "terrorizing" the house. Sierra Jackson also believed Shanae was bringing negativity into most situations and was manipulating Clayton.
A group of women informed Clayton that Shanae had even thrown the winning football team's trophy onto the ground when she had crashed a previous afterparty.
Clayton was also told Shanae had yelled at Sierra and Genevieve Parisi to keep her name out of their "f-cking mouths."

Clayton, upset about Shanae's profanity and behavior, suggested Shanae should apologize to the rest of the cast because he didn't want the women to be living in "a hostile environment."
Shanae, seemingly aware Clayton had been considering her elimination, decided to apologize to the girls and cry about how she was "truly sorry" and had been wrong and disrespectful to them.
Shanae said she'd like to get along with and confide in everyone going forward.
But what appeared to be minutes later, Shanae bragged in an interview with producers about how she had put on an amazing emotional performance.
"I'm not sorry, hoes, you mean-ass b-tches! I need an Oscar award for that performance. Fake it until you make it!" Shanae boasted and giggled. "I never thought I could act before but I'm f-cking good."
Shanae even laughed about how she had delivered a better performance than Meryl Streep.
"B-tches, I'm done. He's mine!... I'm this hot blonde bombshell, what else do I need to say?! Give me the Oscar, give me the Emmy, give me the Golden Globe and give me the f-cking rose!" Shanae shouted.
Clayton proceeded to give Shanae a rose and eliminate both Sierra and Jill as well as Lyndsey Windham -- and Shanae took credit for Clayton's Rose Ceremony decisions.
Late last month, Clayton apologized on social media for sending Elizabeth home and wrote, "I'm sorry, Elizabeth, for what you're going through. I wish I could have seen what was happening when I wasn't there."
"I obviously knew y'all weren't in a good place with each other, but I thought at the time that it was, solely, petty drama. I would have sent Shanae home immediately for making fun of you for being neurodivergent, had I known."
Clayton also admitted watching Season 26 back so far has brought him anxiety and feelings of guilt.
"Overall, the experience for me watching hasn't been fun, simply because I'm seeing all the damage that I caused," Clayton stated at the time.
"I really meant well, but my actions weren't always the best as I now can see the repercussions from my decisions."
Clayton went on to promise The Bachelor fans that he's "learning" from "the mistakes."
"[I] am doing everything in my power to come out the other side a better man," Clayton concluded.
In addition, Clayton reminded his followers that "mental health matters" and people should keep that in mind before hitting "send," which suggested people had been sending Clayton hate and criticism for his decisions.
