Savannah Chrisley‘s battle against the poor treatment of her incarcerated parents continues to heat up as the entertainer calls out authorities over “injustice.”
The oldest daughter of Todd and Julie Chrisley is not backing down when it comes to raising awareness about the need for prison reforms in the US. The 25-year-old has actively spread the word, bravely standing up against a government system she believes is cruel.
The “Unlocked With Savannah Chrisley” podcast host began her war against the prison operations following her parents’ imprisonment on fraud and tax evasion charges. The heads of the Chrisley clan received a combined sentence of 19 years, a ruling the family hopes to appeal successfully.
Savannah Chrisley Shares Her Unfiltered Opinions About The Unfairness In Her Parents’ Case
In her latest Instagram update, the Atlanta native shared a video of her recent appearance on Fox News. The media personality joined political commentator Lawrence B. Jones for a virtual interview about her parent’s incarceration.
For the appearance, the Sassy By Savannah founder stunned in a green turtleneck underneath a black jacket designed with a flattering green stripe across the neckline. The entertainer was all business as she aired her grievances against the prison system.
When the broadcaster noted that Savannah had recently discussed her struggles with mental health and asked about her reasons for going public with her challenges, the 25-year-old confessed she wanted to inspire others to fight, noting that they were not alone in their battles.
“I know what it feels like to be in the dark. I know what it feels like to be alone, and I just wanted people to know they are not alone. And now, I can take what has happened to my parents and the injustices with it and speak for others,” the reality TV star explained.
Commending Fox News and other alleged “FBI whistle-blowers” for speaking out about the unfair practices in the government, the entrepreneur continued: “We felt it firsthand with the government overreach, with a warrantless search that occurred with an IRS — with a department of revenue agent going into a warehouse without a warrant.”
Insisting her advocacy on the matter was for a bigger problem than her love for her family, the blonde beauty stressed: “So if it can happen to us, it can happen to you. It’s not about my family; it’s about the corrupt nature within the DOJ and the FBI.”

Earlier in her discussion with Jones, the political commentator noted that the Chrisleys were appealing the combined 19-year prison sentence given to the family’s heads. When asked how the process was going, the former beauty pageant competitor lamented that dealing with the government was difficult.
“We are currently in the appeal process, and as you know, when you are dealing with the government, it is a long journey, but it is not a journey that we are afraid of. We are willing and ready to fight head-on,” the Miss Tennessee Teen USA titleholder declared.
One of the ways by which the podcaster was fighting for her family’s freedom was by raising awareness about the poor conditions in the prisons. According to the Atlanta native, reforms were necessary as inmates barely received humane treatment behind bars.
The “Chrisley Know Best” star aired similar grievances in her caption, partly writing: “Criminal justice reform and improving prison conditions isn’t a Republican or Democrat issue. It is about being humane and decent.”
The Cosmetic Company Founder Got Candid About Misconducts In Prison Systems
Months before her appearance on Fox News, the “Growing Up Chrisley” star opened up about her issues with the US prison system. Taking to her Instagram Story, the 25-year-old shared a screenshot of a news article about the induction of Colette S. Peters as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
In her post, the TV personality highlighted several points she wanted her fans to notice in the press release. According to the snippet, Ms. Peters was sworn into the position after the former Director, Michael Carvajal, resigned in January.
Carvajal stepped down from his post after Associated Press investigators uncovered “widespread corruption, misconduct, and sexual abuse of female inmates.” Amid the backlash from Congress for his poor conduct, the former Director was forced to attend a Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations hearing.
However, Carvajal denied all allegations and refused to take responsibility for the “culture of corruption and misconduct” under his watch. This point struck a chord with Savannah, who noted in the overlay text: “TAKE NOTE…A culture of corruption and misconduct….”
