Christine Brown Apologizes for Insensitive Post, Emphasizes: Black Lives Matter!

by at .

Christine Brown has become the second member of the Sister Wives cast to very clearly state her position on the social justice protests that have taken over the nation this month.

And that position can be summed up in three words...

Christine Brown Breaks a Sweat

... Black. Lives. Matter.

Christine made this declaration on Instagram yesterday after garnering some major backlash in response to a previous social media post.

The TLC personality was blasted on Monday after she took to her official account and promoted a new t-shirt she was selling by the brand Lularoe.

"Our world is crazy right now!" wrote Christine, making a reference to the George Floyd killing and the civil unrest that has understandably cropped up in response.

"This year has been SO HARD so far! From fires to looting to killing to shaming," she continued, citing this t-shirt and the message scrawled on its front and adding:

"It seems like being 'perfectly imperfect' fits for all of us though. No matter how we stand politically or socially.

"I wish this was a world where we could all have honor and trust and hey, a lot more love would be awesome too!"

Brown then added the hashtags #becauseoflularoe #lularoeretailer #lovinlife #perfectlyimperfect.

Yikes, right?

Fans rightfully tore Christine apart for exploiting these troubling and important times in America in order to sell some clothing.

"She turned off comments after people asked her wtf she meant by the wording of this gross post," one person wrote in response, while another chimed in as follows:

"Perfectly performative. Perfectly missing the point. Perfectly privileged."

Christine, at least, has seemingly recognized what she did wrong here and issued an apology on her same Instagram page.

'Working out is hard. Saying sorry is hard. Admitting you were wrong is hard," wrote Christine as a caption to the very first photo we posted above.

She then concluded:

"Saying #blacklivesmatter isn’t hard!! Let’s say it and LIVE IT! BLACK LIVES MATTER!!'

So there you have it, right?

Earlier this week, Meri Brown also broke her silence on this same vital topic, writing:

"Having black friends isn't enough. Being angry that George Floyd & so many other people of color have been killed by white people isn't enough.

"I know in my heart that POC should have every opportunity that I have, that BECAUSE of the tone of their skin, any thoughts or actions toward them shouldn't be any different than thoughts or actions toward me.

"I've never considered myself racist, I believe all people should have the same opportunities available to them. But what I realize is, what am I doing to make sure they DO?"

Continued the reality star:

"Years ago when I started hearing about the #BlackLivesMatter movement, I also started hearing about how all lives matter. Yes! Yes we all do!

"But in my ignorance at the time, I didn't understand WHY there was a Black Lives Matter movement and what was behind it.

"Simply put, in my current understanding, it's because they don't matter, to waaay too many people."

Meri had even more to say on the matter:

Just because Black lives DO matter, doesn't mean white lives don't. That's a gross misconception in the interpretation.

I honestly and respectfully can say at this point, that I personally don't know what I can do about it. All I know is, I can have the hard conversations.

I can listen to other people and learn. I can share what I know.

And here is how she concluded:

What I will say is, let's all do our part in supporting little Gianna Floyd when she said, "My daddy changed the world!"

Let's honor her, and let's honor her daddy and all the others. Let's not let them have died in vain.

Let's do our part to contribute to the change.
