Brittany Aldean – the wife of country star Jason Aldean – is doubling down on a stance deemed transphobic.
On Monday, the blonde mother of two shared on her Instagram Story a quote originally published by Republican pundit Robby Starbuck, defending his “beliefs” that could attract “hate”.
“If you don’t say anything about your beliefs because you’re afraid someone will be offended, then your beliefs aren’t that important to you, but rather what people think of you,” it reads in full.
“When you stand up for what is right and true, you will receive both hate and love, but everyone will know what you are fighting for.”
Brittany’s post comes a week after she started an internet war for publicly thanking his parents “for not changing [her] sex when [she] crossed [her] tomboy phase.
“I love this girl’s life 🤎✌🏼”, she caption a video to the tune of Beyoncé’s “Upgrade U,” which showed her getting glamorous.
“Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, because you and I wouldn’t have worked 😂,” her husband, 45, commented on the clip.
Jason’s colleagues, however, were less amused.
“You’d think celebrities with cutie marks would see the benefits of including LGBTQ+ people in their posts. But instead, we hear someone compare their ‘tomboy phase’ to someone wanting make the transition. Really nice,” Cassadee Pope, 33, tweeted Friday.
Maren Morris, 32, added to Pope’s comment“Is it so easy to, like, not be an asshole human? Sell your clips and zip them up, Barbie Insurrection.
Brittany, 33, responded to the criticism in a since-expired IG story, accusing the pope of “advocating for child genital mutilation.”
“Some parents want so much to be accepted by society that they are willing to make life-changing decisions for their children who are not old enough to fully understand the consequences of their actions,” she added, adding. calling the “Middle” singer “Karen Morris” and thanking her for the Barbie comparison.
pope then taken to instagram to share a photo of herself flashing a smirk, which she captioned, “POV: knowing you’re under the skin of someone you don’t like in the first place 😂.”
On Twitter, conservative commentator Candace Owens chimed in on the matter, answer on the wire of the singers, “It’s easier not to castrate your children. But I guess anything that helps sell bad records.
Morris retaliated“Oh my god, not you. My Grammy is positively sobbing right now. Also why are you always going to ‘castration’ and ‘pedophiles’ to try and end an argument? It’s honestly concerning and deserves to be examined.
Apparently not understanding the definition of male castration, which is the removal of the testicles from a male animal or human, Owens, 33, replied: “When you cut off a penis, that’s the literal definition castration. So yes, I always go to basic English definitions 😂.”
“Also, I said groomers, not pedophiles. Do you have anything else in mind that you want to share with the class, sick?” she added.
According to Oxford Languages, a pedophile is “a person who is sexually attracted to children”, while the definition of grooming is “the action by a pedophile of grooming a child for an encounter, including via an internet chat room, with intent to commit a sexual offence. »
Pope, Morris and Brittany have yet to address their feud on social media.
