Chloe Chrisley was brought into the world by Angela Victoria Johnson and Kyle Chrisley. She was born on November 10, 2012. Today, Kyle’s parents Todd and Julie Chrisley have custody of their granddaughter. This was a decision the family agreed on out of the best interest of both Chloe and her father Kyle. Chrisley Knows Best fans have had the pleasure of watching Todd and Julie raise their granddaughter as one of their own.
Things got a little ugly in a recent snap Savannah shared of Chloe Chrisley.
As we previously reported, Savannah and her father Todd both doted on Chloe via Instagram. They shared two different photos of the seven-year-old standing on a white sandy beach. Chrisley Knows Best fans were in awe of how much Chloe has grown since they last saw her.
Sure, there were a lot of people who took to the comments of these photos to praise the family. They gushed about how adorable Chloe was. Unfortunately, Savannah Chrisley has a massive Instagram following of over two million people. With such a large Instagram following comes a lot of trolls. Things quickly got a little ugly in the comments of what Savannah wanted to be a sweet Instagram post.
Here’s how things spiraled out of control in the comments.
In the comments of Savannah’s posts, one fan grew curious. They wanted to know if Savannah had any exposure to her “black family” and her culture.
“Hey sav does she ever see her mother and black family ? she’s beautiful,” the individual penned in the comment. The individual did not appear to use the question to be malicious. The Instagram user ended the question by complementing Chloe. And, they said “hey” to Savannah before asking it.
That, however, didn’t stop many people from taking issue with the use of the word “black.” Some pointed out the individual could have just asked if Chloe got to see her biological mother’s side of the family without bringing race into it.
Here’s some of what Savannah’s followers had to say in response:
- “I don’t think she does. Her mother gave her up when she was 6 months old. I think if her Mom had a supportive (like you said) black family she would have given her to them. It takes a lot of strength to give up your child. A lot of selflessness. I hope one day they reunite. I’m an adopted black child so I understand first hand what her mother did.”
- “Why has color even got to be in that sentence?! Why not just say , ‘does she see ALL of her family?!'”
- “Well, she is black, good question.”
Was the original comment about Chloe racist?
Some individuals debated on whether the original question was racist. Very actively, the original poster continues to engage in the comments. And, they were quick to clear up whether their question was racist.
yes I am black, i don’t think whether I’m black or not my comment was wrong or racist! . some of the comments her( not your’s) are getting redic. I know she’s half black to be politically correct. But God created us all beautiful and in different shades of colours. I can’t stand ppl who have a problem with the fact that I said she is black, o’r ppl who say colour doesn’t matter, because our in society it does. And yes i could of just said her other famy ‘who are black fron her mother’s side’ so again I’m baffled.”
There were over 40 comments left in response to the original comment. Some fans offered an answer to the question. There were some who took issue with the question. And, there were some who went a completely different direction and debated Chloe’s race instead.
So, does Chloe Chrisley spend time with her “black family”? And, does the Chrisley family exposure her to black culture? Tell us about it in the comments!
