WATCH: Comedian John Crist Unleashes A Sharp Rebuke On Lauren Daigle And John Gray Critics

In a Wednesday post on Instagram, Christian comedian John Crist ripped into critics of Lauren Daigle and Pastor John Gray, both figures embroiled in recent controversies, urging detractors to "just shut up."

Crist addressed the still-smoldering issue of Lauren Daigle's sidestep when asked in an interview if she believed homosexuality was a sin. “You know, I can’t honestly answer on that,” Daigle answered in the interview which took place earlier in the month, adding that “too many people that [she loves] are homosexuals.”

In his video, an Instagram "story" which is only public for 24 hours before automatically being deleted, Crist shooed detractors away from Daigle on the basis that she’s “done more for the Kingdom in a year than you will do in five lifetimes.” He also addressed the concerns of anyone who would question Daigle's faith as “so shallow.”

“Lauren Daigle — I’m sorry, like hundreds of songs lifting up the name of the Lord and led people to the Kingdom and articles and stories,” he declared, “and one time she doesn’t say something that isn’t how you liked it? Get out.”

“If you’re gonna come out with your Lauren Daigle or John Gray trash talk,” Crist continued, “then every tweet, every song that gets played, every post, every Instagram that glorifies the Lord, you should just be celebrating, like, ‘Thank you! We love you.’ If you’re not, then just shut up.”

Crist also shouted down critics of Pastor John Gray, who came under scrutiny in the last week when he bought his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus for their anniversary. Among a few other choice words, Crist's message to such critics was clear: "shut your mouth."

“Like, first of all, what if he saved up for 20 years for that? You don’t know that," Crist said. "What if he gives millions of dollars to the poor? You don’t know that. What if he didn’t take anything from his church? You don’t know that."
