Todd Chrisley leads 'Chrisley Knows Best', an unstructured reality show featuring the flashy Chrisley family on USA Network. The show has been airing since March 2014 and has dished out a lot of entertainment over the past eight seasons, packing in a lot of fun punches in their thirty-minute long episodes. He's known for his sarcasm filled jabs towards his own family in a fun way, however, when a troll on the Internet tried to shade someone from the Chrisley clan, Todd went all guns blazing at the person, not mincing words at all while putting the Internet warrior in their place.

Sharing a screenshot on his page of the direct messages that his daughter Savannah Chrisley received on Instagram, Todd commented, "@tiffanygirlsnyc I sat with your message that you sent to @savannahchrisley and today since I had a few minutes, you have some nerve to come at my daughter but after reviewing your profile, I see where the jealousy comes from, Sweety if jabbing her about Botox is the best you got, then you are weak." 

Todd was upset that the user was trolling Savannah for her looks and he didn't hold back when it came to his daughter. Some of the messages that the troll sent read: "Honey why don't admit you have self-esteem issues. That Botox isn't helping you it's making you more ugly. Some are born with natural beauty and some pay for it like you." The troll also suggested that Nick Kerdiles who was engaged to Savannah at that point had dumped her and that he was cheating on her. "And admit NICK dumped you he don't want you. Honey the minute you start telling your man how to dress and get Botox he will distance himself from you and get pussy on the side."

Todd commented on his daughter and Nick's relationship as well adding, "Now as to @nickerdiles, he’s still in the same spot he’s always been, right beside @savannahchrisley and our family, but nice try you thirsty trick, now with all that being said "I’ve got a bag of d***s to work on". News about Savannah and Nick's engagement was confirmed, two weeks after Todd claimed that they were still together. 

Todd had also taken this opportunity to address the speculation about his sexual orientation that's been constantly talked about since the show first started airing. Among the other messages, the troll had also written, "Why don't you admit your dad is a f****t. America sees that your dad is gay the more he keeps denying it will manifest itself." Todd replied to the same saying, "I decided to allow my fa*dom to manifest enough to say “F**koff “ I get that you don’t have my DNA, but that’s your mama's fault for not meeting me before she met your dad," he said. 

Todd has never shied away from addressing the comments about his sexual orientation. "There's no coming out. What you see is what you get. I am what I am. Other people's opinions of me are just not my business," he said in 2014. 

'Chrisley Knows Best' airs Thursdays at 10 pm ET on USA Network.
