Chip and Joanna Gaines Accused of Going ‘Woke’ After Controversial Social Media Post

Chip and Joanna Gaines took a bruising online Sunday over a social media post featuring the TV home remodeling power couple posing with WNBA player Brittney Griner.

Chip Gaines posted a photo of him, his wife and the former Baylor University women’s basketball star after her number was retired by the school.

During the Bears’ game against Texas Tech, which they won 61-32, the school honored Griner for her contributions during her collegiate career.

The former Russian prisoner visited her alma mater for the first time since she left after her senior season.

CBS News reported her No. 42 jersey was raised into the rafters at Baylor’s newly opened Foster Pavilion in Waco, Texas, and she hung around and posed for pictures afterward.

The Gaineses, devout Christians who live in Waco, were among those to pose with Griner. Both of the “Fixer Upper” stars are Baylor alumni.

Chip Gaines shared the photo on Instagram and wrote, “Welcome home @brittneyyevettegriner. SO proud of you girl!”

Given Griner’s comments in which she said she opposed hearing the national anthem at sports events, Chip and Joanna Gaines were dragged for celebrating the LGBT activist.

“Chip and Joanne have turned so woke it’s pathetic,” the Instagram post’s top comment read, while another person posted, “Go woke, go broke.”

“Proud of her for what?” a third person said. “Trashing America but getting out while a Real American Hero someone to be proud of is still in jail!”

That comment was an apparent reference to Marine Corps veteran Paul Whelan, whom the Biden administration left in a Russian prison when it negotiated a prisoner swap for Griner.

Griner was freed in exchange for notorious Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout in December 2022.

She was arrested in February 2022 and later sentenced to nine years in prison for bringing a marijuana vaporizer pen into Russia.

One of Chip Gaines’ followers commented, “Proud of her for WHAT? Taking drugs into another country? Bashing America??”

Following the racial and civil unrest of 2020, Griner said she was opposed to hearing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at her games, CBS Sports reported.

“I honestly feel we should not play the national anthem during our season,” she said.

After her release from prison and return to the U.S., however, Griner said hearing the national anthem at a WNBA game “hit different.”

“I’m grateful to be here, that’s for sure. I’m not going to take a day for granted,” she said.

    I had already stopped watching their show last year they had gotten so fake in their actions now this doesn’t surprise me

  • Irishgal says:

    Well, considering Griner IS A DUDE! If ya dig, you will find- Plenty of ‘topless’ photos of him, NO woman has underarm hair like, nor do any women have an Adams Apple and such a deeeeeeep voice. Just another Tranny like Mikelle Obama. Biden got a tranny Griner out, left a Marine and Gonzalo Lira- an American Author/journalist died (tortured and medically neglected). All it would have taken is ONE call from Biden to our supposed ‘ally’ Ukraine- his best buddy Zelensky for his release. So, I hope Griner truly appreciate being back. As far as the Gaines are concerned, they can go…….

    Well there goes their show. Used to like them NOT ANYMORE

  • I am not surprised at all they have one woke. I use to faithfully watch their broadcast, I subscribed to their magazine and enjoy their newsletters. But, in the past few years, they started to venture from their Waco, TX. roots. The magazine is mostly expensive products that the everyday people would not be able nor want in their homes. She has went to “New York” ways and that doesn’t settle well in middle American households. Money changed them and now its apparent politics have too. Such a shame. Go woke, go broke! I will never have anything to do with anyone that does not honor our flag or ones that are ashamed to be Americans!
