Host Jeff Probst took to Twitter after tonight’s controversial episode of Survivor.

Contestant Zeke Smith was outed as transgender by fellow tribe member Jeff Varner during tribal council, which rightfully had the rest of the tribe – and the Internet – in an uproar.

“I am reading all of your reactions to tonight’s #survivor tribal council. @zekerchief has been an amazing partner through all of this,” Jeff tweeted after the airing. “@zekerchief Zeke’s ability to remain composed, strong and yet still compassionate, despite the very vulnerable situation was exemplary.”

He added, “@survivorcbs our hope is that this emotional and powerful conversation will bring awareness and understanding…and ultimately effect change.”

Zeke himself also took to social media.

“We cannot control the hazards we face, we can only control how we respond. Love each other. #Survivor #Zekevivor,” Zeke tweeted. “To learn how to be a better ally to trans people, click the link below. *Spoiler alert* Don’t out people.”

Jeff Probst's 'Survivor' Audition Tape Is a Must-Watch!

You have to see this cringeworthy demo reel that Jeff Probst submitted as his audition for the Survivor hosting gig back in 1999!

“If I looked back, I’d be humiliated. But at the time, I was super proud of it,” Jeff told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Jeff also said the reason he probably got the gig was because he lied to producer Mark Burnett. “They say, ‘Hey, can you ride a horse?’ ‘Yeah!’ ‘Can you fly a plane?’ ‘Of course!’”

The new season of Survivor: Game Changers, premieres this coming Wednesday on CBS.

Survivor's Jeff Probst Reveals Shocking New Rule for 'Game Changers'!

Jeff Probst just revealed a huge new rule for season 34 of Survivor: Game Changers.

“The biggest change we’re doing this season is if there’s a tie at Tribal Council, there will not be a revote,” Jeff told Parade. “There will not be a chance for people to change their votes. You go directly to the tiebreaker, which is openly discussing among yourselves who you want to get rid of. If you can come to a unanimous decision, then that person goes home. If you can’t get a unanimous decision, everybody draws rocks.”
