A look inside. Amber Smith (née Bartlett) revealed that she and her husband Granger Smith are still receiving messages in which people blame them for the death of their son River in 2019.

The actress, 40, took to her Instagram Story on Monday, July 4, to share screenshots of lengthy accusatory DMs. A rep for Amber and the country singer confirmed that River died aged 3 in June 2019 after a “tragic drowning at home,” and the critical questions haven’t stopped since then, according to the dallas alum.

“Why wasn’t he properly protected and supervised?” one reviewer wrote in a lengthy post shared on Monday. “It’s none of my business, not trying to be cruel, but having a beautiful baby drown and then having another child, like… oops sorry about that one, we’ll just replace him. How do you deal with knowing that his death was 100% preventable? And then move on? »

Amber and Granger, 42, share River’s older siblings Lincoln, 8, and London, 7, and they welcomed their son Maverick, 11 months, more than two years after River’s death.

On Tuesday, July 5, Amber shared a screenshot of a comment on Instagram. “Why would you be such irresponsible parents?!?” the user asked. “Teach babies to swim, enclose the pool, PROTECT your children! It’s your fault, you killed your victory [sic] child. Really disgusting.

In response, Amber quoted James 3:6 (“The tongue is also a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body.”) and added that she found herself forgiving those who make hateful comments. .

“I can’t fault these people. We live in a fallen world,” she said. “It took me 3 years not to let these comments hurt me, but I forgive them. I am rooted in Jesus.

Since the toddler’s tragic passing, grieving parents have established the River Kelly Fund to provide funds for a variety of causes, including children in need and wildlife preservation.

The family also took steps to prevent another drowning accident. Granger revealed that Maverick completed his 10th infant swimming rescue lesson in April.

“My mind is blown,” the “Country Things” crooner captioned an Instagram video at the time. “He can barely crawl, but now he knows how to hold his breath, twist his body, find air, float on his back and cry. He can do this by falling head first, feet first or not any orientation.He has the skills to float until help comes.

That was before Maverick could even say “Mom.” Amber revealed on Tuesday that the little guy finally called her for the first time.
