Country music's 'transphobia' scandal: Maren Morris, Cassadee Pope slam Jason Aldean's wife Brittany over remarks
'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 Aldean said
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: On Thursday, August 25, Brittany Aldean, wife of country singer Jason Aldean, posted a video captioning it, "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." This led to a social media feud between her, Maren Morris, and Cassadee Pope.
As a response to this video, Pope tweeted, "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."
According to DailyMail, Morris came in support of Pope and replied, "It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie". Later, Brittney took a dig at Pope through her Instagram stories, "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 can to protect their innocence. The other day Memphis wanted to be a dinosaur and tomorrow Navy will want to be a cat. They're children."
Further, she added, "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. Thankfully my parents allowed me to go through my tomboy phase without changing my gender until then. Leave children alone!"

In another story, Brittany stated, "Food For Thought, Age To Enter Military:18, Age To Buy Cigarettes: 18, Age To Drive A Car: 16, Age To Vote: 18, Age To Drink Alcohol: 21, Age To Take Life Altering Hormone Blockers And Or Irreversible Surgery - A Child Can Choose??"
Meanwhile, Morris took to her Instagram stories and said in a video, "Ya'll have been so sweet and supportive today of me and Cassadee. I will say, like, we can handle this s**t, we've dealt with idiots for years, you know, saying insanely stupid stuff at us, but like, I would say check on your trans friends, check on your gay friends, anyone that like, is in country music and had to look at that bulls**t today and feel subhuman."
Further, she added, "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. 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!', F**k all the way off to Insurrection Barbie and the fellow IB’s trolling this comment section with their hypocritical, hateful a**es."
Pope also came up with an Instagram post with the caption, "POV: Knowing you got under someone’s skin you don’t like in the first place."
Both Grammy winners have been outspoken supporters of the LGBTQ community for years. The duo has been advocating for more diversity in the country genre, especially for African-Americans.
