Chip and Joanna Gaines, the hosts of the wildly popular HGTV show, "Fixer Upper," announced last week that they are expecting their fifth child, but not everyone was enthralled by the news.
The pair announced their happy news on both Instagram and Facebook, and the posts were met, mostly, with words of congratulations and wishes for a safe and healthy pregnancy. But leftist trolls were quick to seize on the opportunity to remind Chip and JoJo that they were contributing to the demise of the entire planet by adding one more human to their family.
“Thank you for contributing to the over population of the planet. I hope this one will be your last and you will use wiser judgment," read one post, apparently blaming the couple for environmental destruction.
Others accused the couple of emotionally abusing their four other children. “I like them ok but enough with the kids already. Their own children begged them not to have any more children on a previous episode already+overpopulation= [:/]." The emoji was apparently for good measure.
Fortunately the two television stars didn't appear bothered by the trolls — after all, this isn't the first time the "Fixer Upper" pair has fallen afoul of leftists. A Buzzfeed reporter decided last year to attack Chip and Joanna over their church attendance and religious beliefs, accusing the couple of being "anti-gay." The reporter did not succeed in derailing the pair's popularity; their fifth and final season of "Fixer Upper" is the most watched yet.
