Celebrities are fighting about politics again — this time, a country music artist’s wife is in the epicenter of the drama.
Brittany Aldean, wife of CMA Award-winning Jason Aldean, mother, and beauty influencer, posted a makeup video on Instagram last week to her audience of 2.2 million followers. “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,” her tongue-in-cheek caption read.
In response, many reacted in jest to the beauty reel’s caption, such as country artist Jon Pardi’s wife, Summer; Lara Lea Trump; fellow conservative country artist RaeLynn; and Aldean’s own star husband, who commented, “I’m glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”
Others didn’t appreciate the humor and took to Twitter to vent their offense. Singer Cassadee 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.”
