Maddie Marlow Slams Cyber Bullies Following Election

The 2016 presidential election seems to have caused a rift among many Americans, with that divide growing ever more evident with the hurtful things people are saying about each other online. Maddie and Tae’s Maddie Marlow has noticed how strained things have become recently and she’s taken to social media to slam cyber bullies for the unkind things they’ve said. In a lengthy message posted on Instagram, Maddie said that having an opposing political view doesn’t make someone a bad person and it’s definitely no excuse to treat them poorly. Marlow said, “People complained about how both candidates were bullies in their own ways but YOU are the bully by bashing people on our social media for thinking differently than you. GOD FORBID you experience diversity here on Earth.”


·         Maddie then said Jesus wouldn’t bash someone for a thinking differently, but would rather be “loving on EVERYONE.” She also said, “It is not our job as Christians to try to tell people they are wrong for what they believe. It’s our job as followers of Christ to LOVE OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS even if they are different than us!”

·         She then wrapped up the message by saying, “If your political views define who you are as a human and you can’t stand to have friends that have different views than you, than you need to reevaluate my friend.”
