Alaskan Bush People star, Rain Brown, has received a ton of Internet backlash recently. From debuting her singing abilities to posting selfies while her mom battles stage IV lung cancer, the 14-year-old can’t seem to catch a break. Yet earlier this week, the youngest of the Brown family took to Instagram to share a message of kindness, equality, and hope. Watch the video below to see what she had to say.
Since sharing her thoughts with fans — and haters — a majority of her commenters praised the young star. “So very well worded! You are the bestest you and that is truly wonderful. Thank you for sharing your light with me in some of my darkest hours.” Another added, “Rainy, you are a beautiful young woman, and I do not mean only outward beauty. Please always remember from someone who has been bullied for her looks since I was 5 years old (and often by my own extended family)… Those who come online and post such hateful things about others are leading so very sad a life that their degrading of others is their way of making themselves feel better. It does not make it right, but try to take comfort in the thoughts that you have such a happier life despite what your mom and the entire family are going through.”
As previously reported, Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year. In a recent interview with People, the reality TV matriarch opened up about why she is remaining optimistic even though she only has a three-percent chance of survival. “I realized early into this that it’s very easy to want to give up and just die. And on the pessimist side, it could be my last days,” she said. “But I have the will to fight.” She added, “Worrying about it only makes it worse. There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up. I tell people be happy. Just be happy. It’s a choice. Things can be hard and you just want to curl up but you have to shine.”
