Todd Chrisley isn’t doing his public image any favors. In fact, he seems to make it worse with each passing day.
The 50-year-old reality celeb recently angered a good portion of his online fanbase when he encouraged followers to ‘forgive’ the terrorists involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Needless to say, Chrisley fans and followers went on the attack.
What did Todd Chrisley post?
In addition to his ongoing legal troubles, the famous reality personality is now killing his rep on social media. It’s hard to go wrong with a ‘remember 9/11’ post — but Todd Chrisley definitely missed the mark with this one. On Wednesday, Todd posted a remembrance photo of the Twin Towers on his Instagram with the caption “Forgive , BUT NEVER FORGET..” The celeb’s fans and followers immediately began showing their distaste and disgust for the concept of forgiveness in the comment section of the post.
The post has been live on the site for just over 48 hours and has already amassed nearly 500 comments – many of which are from users who aren’t keen on ‘forgiving’ those who they see as active in the planning and execution of one of the nation’s greatest tragedies.
Chrisley’s followers were not happy
September 11th is a day each year that plays on the heartstrings of most Americans in different ways – especially those who were there, victims who survived, people who lost loved ones and the thousands of first responders who came to the aid of the nation. The viewers who caught a glimpse of Todd Chrisley’s post – were quick to remind him of why forgiveness was not an option for them.
“Forgive? No, I will not forgive the monsters who murdered my brother and thousands of others” said user @lux.b26
“Why would I forgive a terrorist group that clearly wanted to hurt this country we will never forget but I will never forgive those animals that did this to our country.” added another.
Todd was not the only Chrisley to make a post honoring 9/11
According to celebrity news site The Blast, Todd’s wife, Julie Chrisley, also took a moment to pen a post in remembrance of the day. In an Instagram post that went live on Wednesday, Julie included a text graphic that read:
18 years ago today, 3,000 people would be spending their last night with their family. Think about that for a second.
Julie’s post is getting a far different reaction from fans and has in 2 days amassed more than 25.5,000 likes on Instagram and nearly 500 comments from fans across the nation sharing their thoughts, prayers, and memories of where they and their loved ones were when the attack happened.
Will Julie’s post be able to balance out the backlash Todd is getting on social media?
Who knows. With the Chrisley’s you never know what will come next. It seems as though fans are responding with a lot more positivity to Julie’s post but whether that will draw attention away from Todd’s post is yet to be seen as both have had similar amounts of interaction on Instagram.
