Country music and famous political commentators have engaged in a war of words in the wake of Brittany Aldean’s message thanking her parents for “not changing” her gender as she went through a “tomboy phase” in her youth.

The controversy, mainly surrounded by what some consider to be hateful and transphobic comments by Aldean, caught the attention of two female country music stars, Marren Morris and Cassadee Pope.

Aldean, who is married to Grammy-nominated singer Jason Aldean, struck a chord when she was criticized by Pope, sharing on her Instagram story: “Calling for child genital mutilation under the guise of love, calling it ‘gender affirmative care’, “is one of the worst evils. I will always support my children and do what I can to protect their innocence.”

Originally, Pope and Morris took to their Twitter to share their distaste for Aldean’s comments. Pope wondered why an esthetician, like Aldean, would alienate or exclude a certain group of people with her words.

As a result, a slew of other famous faces, including the woman at the forefront of the husbands, shared their hot takes on Aldean’s comments.

It was really Pope’s tweet after Aldean’s comments that started to gain traction and put the feud in wait.

“The Voice” singer took to her Instagram to share a cheeky post about getting under the skin of someone “you don’t like in the first place”. This was apparently a jab in Aldean.

Under that Instagram post shared by Pope, Morris wrote: “You know, I’m glad she didn’t turn into a boy either, because we really don’t need another guy in the world. Trying to hide their homophobia/transphobia behind their” protection of the children’.”

Additionally, Morris shared another Instagram post with the caption, “Burn it. What a loving, inclusive crowd,” seemingly alluding to the exclusivity she believed Aldean’s comments were.

In the wake of what turned out to be highly controversial comments, Aldean posted a photo of herself on her own Instagram, writing, “I love you, that’s all,” and added three red heart emojis.

In the past, Aldean has never shied away from speaking out about her beliefs, no matter the opposition she may face.

Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean responded to his wife's post, writing: "MY Barbie!!" which was probably referring to Marren Morris' Twitter insult that Aldean mentioned an "Rebellion Barbie."
