Brittany Aldean claims she got ‘support’ for transphobic post

Jason Aldean’s wife claimed she has received “so much support” from the country music community after facing criticism over a transphobic Instagram post.

“So much support, so much support,” Brittany Aldean told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight on Thursday when asked about the response in Nashville. “Especially people who have children.”

However, Brittany admitted that she’s also gotten some not-so-positive comments from “the other side.”

“People are entitled to their opinion, but that’s about it – we as conservatives have a very hard time having an opinion, especially in today’s society,” she continued. “It’s very, very sad, but [I’ve had] lots of support within Nashville and certainly just friends and family.”

The controversy started when Brittany shared a Reel with her 2.3 million Instagram followers on Aug. 23 in which she thanked her parents for “not changing” her gender during her “tomboy phase”.

“I advocate for children,” she explained during Thursday’s interview. “I don’t think children should be making these life-changing decisions at such a young age. They are not mature enough.”

The mother of two defended her position by comparing it to laws requiring people to be of a certain age to buy cigarettes and join the military.

“I think when you’re older, if you choose to make these decisions, sure, but kids are too young [and] not mature enough to make those decisions,” she said. “They are life-changing. … It has so many consequences to do that at such a young age.

“And we, parents and we as a society, regardless of political status, should be able to sit back and talk about it and fight for these children,” concluded Brittany.

As a result of the public backlash Brittany has faced, Jason’s 17-year-old PR firm, The GreenRoom, dropped the 45-year-old as a client this week.

“We’re not the best people for the gig anymore, but we’ll always be big fans of his music — he’s one of the biggest live entertainers in country music,” co-owner Tyne Parrish told Billboard on Thursday.

Brittany’s Instagram post caused a stir in the country music world, where her husband’s counterparts Cassadee Pope and Maren Morris spoke out against her views, the latter calling Brittany “Insurrection Barbie.”

“I’ve never had a conversation with any of these people,” Brittany claimed about Pope and Morris on Thursday.

Brittany claimed she had no previous relationship with Maren Morris and Cassadee Pope, both of whom openly criticized her views.

The Aldeans married in 2015 after Jason admitted to cheating on his first wife, Jessica Ann Ussery, with Brittany.
