Watch: Todd Chrisley Defends Biracial Granddaughter From Critic

Todd Chrisley doesn't have time for any kind of hate.

On Wednesday evening, the Chrisley Knows Best star announced a new podcast episode featuring his biracial granddaughter Chloe Chrisley.

"Silent Racism, I Love How God Made Me, and It's Enough. Today I am joined by surprise guest Chloe for a conversation about race and racism in America," he shared on Instagram. "Plus your questions about how the show affects regular life."

One follower decided to share her point of view in the comments section. "I'm sorry, I don't like it. Marry your own color. It really screws up the kids," the user wrote.

Todd saw the comment and replied. "Hello Patti, I hope that the Lord lets you live long enough to see that color doesn't screw kids up, but ignorance and hater most certainly will," he wrote according to Hollywood Unlocked. "I will pray that God tempers your heart and that he grants you clarity."

Stars Donating to Black Lives Matter Organizations

As for the latest episode of Chrisely Confessions, Todd and Chloe, 7, talked openly about what is going on in the country.


"I have a black mom and a white dad and I love how God made me," Chloe said when recalling a family moment this weekend. 

Todd added, "Chloe is seven so Chloe needs to be involved in these conversations at seven because she needs to know that this country—this world as they see her—they will see you as a black girl."

The Chrisley Knows Best star also added that the most important thing to him in determining friends is how they treat you.

"I've had to have my eyes opened in a lot of ways to silent racism," Todd admitted.

Chloe is the daughter of Todd's son Kyle Chrisley. In 2016, Todd was granted full custody of his granddaughter. Since then, she has made appearances on the family's USA Network show.

"The sweetest gift from God, I Thank you dear lord for every blessing you've ever given me, for every lesson I learned the hard way, for all the things I was wrong about and for the ability to love, forgive, and accept and move on," Todd previously shared on Instagram. "THIS CHILD IS OUR BLESSING and we will honor that for every day we are given and beyond."
