According to Pop Culture, on March 24, 2018, the star posted the heartfelt video message on Twitter. It’s assumed that the post was inspired by all the negative responses he got on Instagram over the March For Our Lives protest.

Jonathan Scott, 39, had enough of the negativity from internet trolls that he posted a message for them over their “unwarranted negativity.” The Property Brothers star took to Twitter late Saturday night to share a 2-minute message for fans who posted negative remarks on several of his inspiring social media posts.

His recent post had been on Instagram where he supported the students and victims of gun violence taking part in the March for Our Lives protest. “If it offends you when I post saying I believe in protecting our nation’s children and supporting their right to free speech, well then I’m sorry that you feel that right is only for the privileged few,” Scott began his statement.

He went on to say how he believed in equality, respect, and understanding as the only way to grow their society stronger. The star shared that he was sorry that his post offended people who harbored pain and resentment inside them because they shouldn’t.

He went on to say that he honestly looked for the good in all people. Scott shared that with the thousands of comments he received every day, he read every single one of them, including the “hateful comments.”

“I encourage you to just come in and join the conversation and have an open mind. At the end of the day if it turns out that I actually do believe in a healthier planet and supporting families and supporting strong economic growth, well I guess that means I support you as well.”
