Jason Aldean dropped from PR agency after wife Brittany’s transphobic comments

Country singer Jason Aldean was dropped by his 17-year-old PR agency after his wife Brittany Aldean’s recent transphobic comments.

Just a week after unleashing online backlash, the 45-year-old “You Make It Easy” hitmaker is now suffering backlash from his wife’s comments.

“Music has always been and remains the core focus of The GreenRoom, so after 17 years we had to make the difficult decision not to represent Jason anymore,” Tyne Parrish, co-owner of The GreenRoom of Nashville, told Billboard on Thursday.

“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.”

The GreenRoom’s clients include fellow countrymen Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Lady A and Brett Young.

The company’s decision to split with the singer comes just days after Brittany claimed her transphobic Instagram reel was “taken out of context.”

“As usual, my words have been taken out of context over the past week. Instead of getting twisted about the twisting of my words, I’ve chosen to get something good out of it,” she wrote in the Instagram post.

It all started when Brittany thanked her parents for “not changing” her gender during her “tomboy phase” in an Instagram clip.

“Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t either, because you and I wouldn’t work it out,” her husband commented in the comment section.

After provoking a big reaction with her comment, the country singer defended his wife when she called parents who passed their trans children over “one of the worst evils,” calling her “MY Barbie.”
