JULIE Chrisley has opened up on the “hurt” she feels when trolls claims her eight-year-old biracial randdaughter Chloe does not “fit in the family.”
Chloe is the daughter of Julie’s husband Todd’s eldest son Kyle; Todd and Julie have been raising Chloe since she was a baby and she does not have a relationship with her birth mother.
But as a public family who star in their own TV show, Chrisley Knows Best, they have been attacked by bigots, and Julie has now admitted that she will always “call out” those who attack the youngster,
“People will write things like, ‘She doesn’t fit into your family,’ and it hurts my heart,” the matriarch said.
“If it’s something stupid about me, I don’t care. I don’t have time for that.
“But if you attack Chloe, I’m gonna call you out. Your co-workers and the families sitting beside you in church every week should know what kind of person you are.”
Speaking to Today, Julie added that it’s not just internet haters but also Chloe’s peers who cause anguish.
“She came home and I knew something was wrong,” Julie recalled of a school day.
“All of a sudden, tears started streaming down her face. She looked at me and said, ‘Mama, I don’t know why God made me this way.’
“She said: ‘My friends wouldn’t let me play unicorn with them because unicorns are white and I’m Black.’ And I said: ‘Honey, let me tell you something. God made you exactly the way you are supposed to be. You are 100% perfect. There is no one else like you and you can be anything you want to be. You can be the most beautiful unicorn.'”
Todd and Julie are parents to Chase, 24, Savannah, 23, and Grayson, 14.
Todd is also dad to Kyle, 29, and Lindsie, 31, from a previous marriage.
In April, Todd revealed he had contracted the coronavirus as he and Julie were fighting fraud charges.
The couple had handed themselves into the FBI in August 2019, a day after receiving a 12-count indictment that covered nine years.
