Jason Aldean's wife Brittany clapped back the backlash she received this week over a "get ready with me" post in which she thanked her parents for not changing her gender.

The 33-year-old fashion blogger and YouTuber shared a video reel showing her followers how she transforms herself with makeup with the flick of a foundation brush while Beyoncé and Jay-Z's 'Upgrade U' played in the background. The former American Idol contestant wrote in the caption, "I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life." Brittany's post, however, did not sit well with country music singers Cassadee Pope and Maren Morris, who were among many to criticize the clip.

Brittany, who tied the knot with the 'You Make It Easy' hitmaker in 2015, received more than 150,000 likes on her post, drawing praises from the likes of Lara Trump, Jon Pardi's wife Summer, and her husband. "Lmao!! Im glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out," Jason quipped in the comments section.

Pope attacked Brittany in a tweet just hours after the video was posted. "You’d think celebs with beauty brands would see the positives in including LGBTQ+ people in their messaging. But instead here we are, hearing someone compare their "tomboy phase" to someone wanting to transition. Real nice," she wrote, while Morris added, "It's so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human?"

Responding to Pope on her Instagram Stories, Brittany wrote, "Advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it ‘gender affirming care,’ is one of the worst evils. I will always support my children and do what I can do protect their innocence." She continued, "The other day Memphis wanted to be a dinosaur and tomorrow Navy will want to be a cat. They're children. Some parents want to be accepted by society so badly that they're willing to make life-altering decisions for their children who aren't old enough to fully comprehend the consequences of those actions. Love is protecting your child until they are mature enough as an adult to make their own life decisions. Until then, leave children alone."

Brittany also gave her 2.2 million followers some "food for thought" as she noted how the age to enter the military and buy cigarettes was 18, to drive a car was 16 and drink alcohol was 21, but to "take life altering hormone blockers and/or irreversible surgery - a child can choose?" She then tagged Pope. In another response to Maren Morris, she wrote, "Karen Morris, thanks for calling me Barbie."

Morris nodded in the comments section. "You know, I’m glad she didn’t become a boy either because we really don’t need another a**hole dude in the world," she wrote. "Sucks when Karens try to hide their homophobia/transphobia behind their ‘protectiveness of the children.’ Weren’t they putting their kids in ‘Biden-is-a-pedo’ shirts on social media? Sounds like a real safe way to protect them from millions of eyes!" Morris added, "F**k all the way off to Insurrection Barbie and the fellow IB’s trolling this comment section with their hypocritical, hateful a**es."
