Kim Zolciak and Brielle Biermann are clapping back at trolls!
“I think it’s absolutely disgusting. I think it’s coming from ignorant, uneducated people,” the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star told Us Weekly. “I think it’s quite disrespectful to Kroy as well.”
Brielle says she finds the comments from trolls “honestly appalling.”
“My mind doesn’t go there. He’s my father. It’s disgusting,” she explained. “These people need help. They’re sick.”
This response comes after Brielle was heavily criticized for sitting on stepdad Kroy Biermann’s lap in photos posted on Instagram.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most amazing father & man I’ll ever know,” Brielle wrote in a birthday tribute to Kroy on September 13. “I couldn’t imagine a life without your hardworking, selfless, loving, caring self! I’m so proud of you and all you’ve accomplished. We had too much fun last night. I forgot to post yesterday, love love you, dad!”
Some fans didn’t think it was right for Brielle to be sitting on Kroy’s lap.
“Why you sitting on your momma husband lap?” one person asked.
Another person commented, “That’s a little uncomfortable. She is an adult sitting on her stepfather’s lap.”
Others called the photo “triggering” while one person wrote, “No sitting in stepdaddy’s lap. Don’t you know better?”
Kroy and Kim married in 2011, and then in 2013, Kroy officially adopted Kim’s daughters Brielle and Ariana. The Don’t Be Tardy couple share four children: KJ, 9, Kash, 8, and twins Kaia and Kane, 6.
