Savannah Chrisley took less than 30 minutes to have Instagram saying: “Social DISTANCING” today. The 22-year-old reality star and daughter to real estate mogul Todd Chrisley knows first-hand what it’s like to be affected by COVID-19. Dad Todd went public with his coronavirus hospitalization last month, saying that it had left him “the sickest I’ve ever been.”
It looks like Savannah partying it up on the beach with a crowd of friends in very close proximity to one another did not go down well as her Instagram update went live on Thursday.
The photo that would likely have gotten the thumbs-up at any other time showed the “Chrisley Knows Best” star appearing to have the time of her life. Savannah was looking drop-dead gorgeous as she showed off both her tan and her stunning bikini body on a beach with five others – included was fiancé Nic Kerdalis, plus two individuals appearing to be married: Ashley Boehm and husband Evan were both tagged. A caption read: “Pretending I like all these people….?❤️ #friends.”
Savannah did clock herself a sweet 17,000+ likes in an hour, alongside some positive comments, but remarks over the global pandemic came in fast.
“Supposed to be social distancing,” one fan wrote, with the thought echoed by a user writing: “Love seeing this done with Socisl Distancing.”
A particularly harsh remark mentioning dad Todd also came in – “Good to see you all are social distancing so that you’re probably the reason why your dad got sick.” The user promptly found themselves told that their comment was a “really sh-tty thing to say.”
Savannah hasn’t had it too easy with her bikini snaps this year. February saw the South Beach Diet spokesperson back in a bikini to promote the benefits of the popular diet brand, with a troll mentioning her status as an engaged woman – and it exploded.
“You are engaged and about to be married. Have some class and stop whoring yourself like this. It’s disrespectful to yourself and your future husband.”
Savannah swiftly tagged dad Todd, who then went on a curse-filled Twitter rant defending his beautiful daughter. Scroll for dad Todd’s coronavirus reveal.
Todd made his reveal last month as he took to his podcast, revealing a fever of between 100 and 103 degrees: “I have been battling corona for three weeks, I was in the hospital for four and a half days,” he said, adding: “It has been the sickest that I have ever been in the 52 years that I have been on this earth.”
Savannah, meanwhile, has been actively promoting social distancing on her Instagram, also slamming the concept that either wealth or celebrity status in any way fast-tracked her dad’s diagnosis or treatment.
