Bunnie Xo is sounding off on internet trolls who have apparently “bullied” her husband, Whitsitt Chapel superstar Jelly Roll, about his weight.

Bunnie shared a teaser clip from her upcoming Dumb Blonde podcast episode set to make its debut on Wednesday (April 24). The one-minute, 11-second sneak peek on TikTok began with text over the screen reading: “This week I go off on the podcast.. def going to ruffle some feathers & I didn’t stutter.” She wrote in the caption that the conversation “was pretty therapeutic.”

“My husband got off the internet because he was so tired of being bullied about his f***ing weight, and that makes me wanna cry because he is the sweetest angel baby,” Bunnie said on the podcast in the video shared on Sunday (April 21). “My husband doesn’t show it to you guys, but I’m gonna have a very vulnerable moment here. It hurts him. The internet can say whatever the f*** they want about you, and they say, ‘well, you’re a celebrity. You’re supposed to be able to handle it. No, the f*** we’re not. No, the f*** we’re not. …Enough is enough. Don’t bully people because you never know where they are mentally. There are a lot of people who are not as strong as me that are on the internet and they don’t deserve to f***ing be bullied.

“I’m sorry. I’m gonna stand up for all the f***ing underdogs. You’re never gonna bully me. You’re never gonna lie about me or my family, and I will fight til the end,” Bunnie continued in the video on TikTok. “I love when people are like, ‘Bunnie is a bad human. Just wait and you’ll see.’ I’ve been on the internet 15 f***ing years. When are they gonna see? I’m waiting. What you see is what you get with me. I don’t f***ing pretend to be something I’m not. ...All you gotta do is leave me and my family the f*** alone, and you won’t get called out.”

Jelly Roll, who recently shared with PEOPLE that he’s lost “70-something pounds” as he prepares for a 5K, said in a birthday tribute to his wife earlier this year that she’s “my anchor in every area of my life. She brings a (sense) of peace to every room she walks in. She makes people feel safe. She creates a safe place for people to tell her how they feel. She is special in every way.”

The reigning iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Artist award in both Pop and Country categories met Bunnie in 2015. Jelly Roll proposed the following year, and they got married in a spontaneous courthouse wedding in Las Vegas, Nevada, where they renewed their vows last year.

Jelly Roll was recently confirmed in the star-studded lineup of the 2024 iHeartCountry Festival, set for May 4 in Austin, Texas.
