Jonathan Scott, one half of the hit HGTV showProperty Brothers,has a message for negative commenters on his social media pages: You're not welcome.

"If it offends you when I post saying I believe in protecting our nation’s children and supporting their right to free speech, well then I’m sorry that you feel that right is only for the privileged few," he begins in the video.

He's likely referencing the comments he received on a recent Instagram photo he posted that shows support for the #MarchForOurLives movement.

"If it offends you when I say that I believe equality, respect, and understanding are the only way to grow our society stronger, well I’m sorry that you harbor such pain and resentment inside you, because you shouldn’t," he continues. "I honestly look for the good in all people, and whether you believe in God, or you believe in your country, or you believe in family, they all have one thing in common, and that they stand for something greater than themselves."

He goes on to say that his social media pages are a safe space for people to come and be inspired, and though he sees both constructive and less-than-constructive feedback, he's recently been seeing "a lot of the latter." Scott reminds his followers that it's not only him reading these hurtful words, but also families, children, and even his own mother.

"Let me give you a little advice that my mom gave me 37 years ago," Scott says. "And that’s if you don't have something nice to say—keep it to yourself."

He adds that he's not trying to promote an agenda or force his opinions, but rather "trying to start a conversation."

"I really encourage you to set aside your biases, your preconceived notions, your frustrations, [and] I encourage you just to come and join the conversation, and have an open mind," Scott says. He ends the video by saying though he wants everyone to "come and enjoy the experience" of his posts, and that hateful people are "no longer welcome."

Scott's video has been mainly been met with positivity — he's received thousands of likes and comments in support of his strong words so far.
