Country singer Morgan Wallen is under fire from all sides after a video of him shouting a racial slur went viral earlier this week. So far, he’s been dropped by his record label, country music radio stations, and barred from ACM nominations. However, not everyone is a fan of ‘cancel culture.’
Chrisley Knows Best star Todd Chrisley posted two quotes on his social media within hours of each other. The timing and content of the quotes led to fan speculation that the outspoken reality star was defending Morgan Wallen.

Chrisley Knows Best Star Preaches Actions Define Us, Not Words
Todd Chrisley wasn’t done with his preaching yet, though. He was back on the ‘gram on February 4th with more wisdom to impart. Once again he shared a meme with a cryptic quote summarized as “words don’t define us, actions do.”
As usual, he added his own insight on the quote with his caption. He wrote that, “We can’t control what someone calls us, but we can control what we answer to.”

Was He Defending Morgan Wallen?
More than one person took the Chrisley Knows Best patriarch’s posts to be in reference to Morgan Wallen. A few people left comments in support of Wallen, assuming that Chrisley was also defending the embattled singer.

According to Todd Chrisley, the answer is to “grant grace” to others.
