Carrie Underwood blocked Billy Eichner from Twitter last year, but he’s far from upset about it.
The “Billy on the Street” star reflected on the “great honor” during a “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” performance on Tuesday.
“There was something where, during the height of COVID, she showed support for a speech from a Republican man [Matt Walsh] saying that children should not wear masks in schools,” Eichner explained.
The comedian, 44, explained that the country singer, 39, made her “political views known for the first time” leading him to “make a few jokes about it that went viral on Twitter”.
Eichner added that Underwood apparently “didn’t like that”, referring to her subsequent blocking as “one of the great thrills of [his] to live.”
“This is worldwide, this is worldwide, girl! Hold on!”…
The “Bros” star drew attention to the “American Idol” Season 4 winner’s diss at the time on social media and tweeted a screenshot of the notification with the caption “ICONIC.”
Eichner isn’t the only celebrity to criticize Underwood’s conservative views.
After the Grammy winner’s husband, Mike Fisher, expressed support for NFL player Aaron Rodgers’ misleading comments about the vaccine and Underwood “liked” his post, compatriot superstar Luke Bryan appeared to be making fun of her.
“It’s so great to be here with all my fellow artists – tested and together. Or vaccinated? Who is it?” Bryan, 46, said onstage while hosting the 2021 CMAs before clarifying that he was “just playing”.
The camera then cut to Underwood, who made headlines for the way she looked aside the judge “American Idol” after his prank.
The “Before He Cheats” singer shares two children with Fisher, whom she married in 2010.
She and the former professional ice hockey player, 42, welcomed sons Isaiah (7) and Jacob (3) in 2015 and 2019 respectively.
