Social media feud: Last month Jason's wife Brittany Aldean, 33, set off a social media feud when she shared a getting-ready video on Instagram, writing, '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'

It all began as he said: ‘Asked some friends to come out tonight to make the show extra special.

‘I thought, man, who could I call? I got some friends in town. I could call Luke Bryan. I could call Kane Brown. See if Kenny Chesney’s here and not at the beach.’

He ended up bringing out Morgan Wallen a year-and-a-half after he was blasted for using the N-word in a video leaked on the internet.

This comes just a month after Maren and fellow country singer Cassadee Pope called out fellow singer Jason’s wife Brittany Aldean over allegedly transphobic comments she made on Instagram. 

In a getting-ready video, the conservative activist, 33, wrote, ‘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.’

Cassadee, 32, took to Twitter the next day and responded with ‘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.’

Maren joined in with her own, ‘It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie.’ 

The XO Britt curator then doubled down in her Instagram stories, tagging Say It First singer Pope. 

First she shared what a snap of the Twitter comments as well as her own sarcastic comment to Pope, in which she purposely referred to  her as ‘Karen’ and thanked her for ‘calling me Barbie.’

Response: Last month there was plenty of drama when country singers Cassadee Pope, 32, and Maren responded to Brittany's remarks on Twitter last month

Right to choose: Brittany also questioned whether kids younger than 18 had the right to choose medical help for transition

Morris’ husband, Ryan Hurd, also tweeted that ‘Scoring quick points by picking on trans kids isn’t something that is brave at all.’

He continued: ‘I’m proud of Maren for sticking up for them. Badge of honor to have CO engage in completely normal discourse, too. Shut up and sing only applies to those who you disagree with.’

Then Brittany shared her own thoughts in which she compared so-called ‘gender-affirming care’ to genital mutilation in one slide, writing, ‘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 their actions.’

Another questioned whether children younger than 18 should be able to choose to take puberty blockers, or undergo gender reassignment surgery.

Puberty blockers have often been described as ‘reversible,’ but scientists say there is insufficient research on their side effects.

They have been found to cause symptoms including brain-swelling and loss of bone density in some patients, and can also cause irreversible symptoms including sterility and loss of ability to orgasm.  

Maren answered some of the remarks with her own video in Instagram stories, explaining,’ 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.’

The Bones singer showed her support with ‘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.’

Brittany’s husband, Jason , responded to the message through an Instagram comment, where he referred to his wife as ‘MY Barbie.’ 

Both Grammy winners have been outspoken supporters of the LGBTQ community for years, and have faced backlash from country music fans, but most of their response from followers has been positive. 

The Girl singer has been advocating for more diversity in the country genre, especially for African-Americans.  She was also supportive of her friend, All Night crooner TJ Osborne, who has come out publicly as gay.

A week after the controversy Jason split from his Nashville-based publicity firm, The GreenRoom, who represented the top-selling country music star for nearly two decades.

After 17 years of working with the musical powerhouse on ten different albums, the multi-platinum entertainer, 45, will no longer be working with the top PR firm.

While GreenRoom co-owner Tyne Parrish did not reveal the reason behind why they have parted ways, he did tell Billboard that the decision was ‘difficult.’

‘Music has always been and remains The GreenRoom’s core focus, so we had to make the difficult decision after 17 years to step away from representing Jason,’ Parrish told the outlet.

He continued: ‘We aren’t the best people for the gig anymore, but will always be big fans of his music — he is one of the greatest live entertainers in country music.’
