Todd and Julie Chrisley said they’re trying to protect their son Grayson, 16, amid legal troubles.
The Chrisleys said Grayson should listen to God over opinions on social media during their podcast Wednesday.
The couple was found guilty on federal charges of bank fraud and tax evasion in June.
“Chrisley Knows Best” stars Todd and Julie Chrisley opened up about how their family is dealing with the couple’s conviction for tax evasion and bank fraud.
In an episode of “Chrisley Confessions” posted on Wednesday, People reports the Chrisleys talked about how their son Grayson, 16, is handling their legal troubles. Todd said Grayson, who he called the “the sweetest child” with the “most tender heart,” has been affected by comments made on social media.
“When you have someone that has a heart like Grayson in a world like where we live right now, you have to be very careful with someone that is that sensitive,” he said, according to the outlet. “Because the world doesn’t care if his feelings are hurt.”
The real estate magnate also said he advised his son to “spend as much time listening to God as you do this message that someone sent, who has two followers and a cat as their emoji.”
Julie also added: “Someone else’s opinion of you should not matter. You need to know who you are in the depths of your soul. Who you are as a person, who you are as a spouse, as a friend, as a parent, as a child.”
