Having been a source of public ridicule in the past, Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson is speaking out on behalf of her friends who have been constantly bullied online.
Her friends Lizzie Velaquez and Emma Jenkins are regularly bullied by internet trolls based on their appearances and beliefs. Lizzie and Emma are using their new platform to spread love, joy, and stand up for what they believe in.
Lizzie has been made into memes for the past few years, with people calling her the ugliest woman in the world, and Emma is ridiculed for her love for Jesus, her looks, and the way her voice sounds.
Sadie took to Instagram to stand up to her friends. “Seeing 2 of my friends get hurt the same way I have in the past has lead me to this. How do you look at yourself, how do others look at you, how does God look at you?” she wrote.
She finished her post with a bible verse from 1 Samuel 16:7, which reads, “Don’t judge by his appearance…. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
