Below Deck Down Under has become embroiled in a plague scandal.
The show’s boatswain, Jamie Sayad, has accused sailor Brittini Burton and chief stewardess Aesha Scott of “bullying” him by repeatedly calling him a “b***h” on the series, despite his many requests to stop.
Jamie took to Instagram this week to post a seven-minute video about the incident, which has become a major storyline on the hunting show.

“Two of these people decided to bully me,” he said bluntly, referring to Brittini and Aesha.
“These people have now taught me that I cannot trust them as much as I had hoped,” he continued.
Brittini and Aesha used it in a bully way on me and I won’t accept that, especially after I told them I set a limit and said ‘please don’t use that on me’.
“It doesn’t matter what it is, I’ve set a limit. And I thought they would respect that. It made me feel uncomfortable and it hurt me to know it came from Brittini and Aesha, two people I had confided in.’

The conflict played out in the last few episodes of Below Deck Down Under and started when Brittini jokingly called Jamie a “b***h” on a wild night out.
“Don’t call me b***h anymore,” he snapped at her sternly.
After Brittini told Aesha about the incident, Aesha later called Jamie the B-word while eating alone in the crew’s mess.
“You damn it!” she cried, causing an unimpressed Jamie to look up and say, “I don’t like that.”
“You’re a little sensitive to that,” Aesha replied, condescendingly.

Aesha and Brittini later laughed about it in a taxi as they headed to a bar to meet the rest of the crew, when Aesha turned to flight attendant Magda Ziomek and told her to call Jamie a “b***h” when they arrived .
“Yeah, damn it, Jamie!” Magda yelled in Jamie’s direction as Brittini laughed, enraging him.
“Okay Magda. Call me that again and I’ll never talk to you again,” he said.
“He’s so stupid,” Brittini said, before an enraged Jamie confronted her.

Hilarious? Brittini and Aesha laughed hysterically after Jamie told Captain Jason Chambers to stop calling him the slur
“You know exactly what I’m talking about, Brittini!” he said. ‘Don’t mess around. I told her, and now I’ve told her, that’s three girls, not to call me that.’
In a confessional conversation with producers, Aesha admitted that it was “childish” of her to “eat Magda” to call Jamie a “b***h” even though he had “asked her not to.”
The next day Jamie reported the berating to Captain Jason Chambers, who then had a word to Brittini and asked her to stop.
Angry: “These people have now taught me that I can’t trust them as much as I had hoped,” Jamie said on Instagram
Brittini complained to producers about Jamie telling her to the captain, saying ‘Like, who’s going to be ab***h now? That was quite a move.’
Brittini and Aesha then laughed together, while Aesha said: ‘He’s so ab***h!’
Despite Jamie making his feelings about the incident clear on Instagram, Sailor Benny Crawley has since come out with a video of her own to defend Brittini and Aesha.

He also criticized Jamie’s leadership as a boatswain, saying he was placed in unsafe situations and that his work ethic was unfairly criticized by Jamie throughout the show.
“I love Brittini and I love Aesha, they don’t have bad bones in their bodies,” Benny said.
‘We have often thrown that word around on deck, in the interior it was always said endearingly. It is a famous quote or saying and it was used quite often.

“I just wanted to clear that up and make sure the girls there had some support,” he added.
Responding to the post, Aesha wrote, ‘Ohhhh Benny, I love you, thank you so much. And you are a great person, that locker IS dangerous, never lose your shine.’
