He wrote they are trusting and believing in God, if he has brought them here, He will take them through it. He pleaded the audience to not fall victim to false prophets, to stay steady in their path, grieve the lost ones, pray for who have wronged them, forgive them and ask God to move on. After this he addressed the cancellation of show concerns. Todd wrote, “We are getting back to work after this distraction and our show hasn’t been cancelled.” He also thanked fans for their support.
Todd’s attorneys Bruce H. Morris and Stephen Friedberg have released a statement saying- “The allegations contained in the indictment are based on complete falsehoods. The Chrisleys are innocent of all charges.” The attorneys concluded by saying if the case reaches a courtroom, Todd and Julie will be completely exonerated.
