Deleted user's profile from my treebook and now nothing works

Hi, I am going through Build a simple RoR application videos. However, I am currently going over the "Creating a profile page" videos and I was not sure about the profile name of the user I had registered, therefore I deleted it so that I can create a new one and continue with my videos. After I deleted the user I got :

NoMethodError in Statuses#index

Showing /var/lib/stickshift/5166c81be0b8cdcfca00007a/app-root/data/469951/app/views/statuses/index.html.erb where line #9 raised:

undefined method `full_name' for nil:NilClass Extracted source (around line #9):

this error and I cannot start the server again, nor can I do anything. Can you please tell me how to fix it and continue with my videos. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I believe I should delete the statuses from the db since they have all been created by a user who was deleted. However, I am not sure I should and I do not know how to do this.

Fixed it: > rails console > Status.delete_all
