Garth Brooks Gets Ripped On Twitter Because People Thought He Endorsed Donald Trump (He Didn’t)

Garth can’t catch a break lately when it comes to politics.

If you remember back to February, Garth got BLASTED on Instagram when he wore Hall of Fame running back BARRY Sanders jersey to his stadium show at Ford Field in Detroit.

He was called a “big freakin’ liberal socialist” and “weird that a millionaire would like a socialist,” everything about it was peak social media in 2020.

And now, Garth is getting roasted again on social media, this time for his alleged (and completely inaccurate) endorsement of Donald Trump.

Long story short, a report surfaced on Politico that Garth Brooks, Dennis Quaid, and a number of other celebrities were targeted by a health department ad campaign to “defeat despair and inspire hope, sharing best practices for businesses to operate in the new normal and instill confidence to return to work and restart the economy” regarding Coronavirus.

Dennis Quaid and gospel singer CeCe Winans have already filmed the PSAs and others like Garth Brooks and Dr. Oz were targeted as well. However, Garth was only asked. He has not confirmed, endorsed or appeared in anything at the moment.

But that didn’t stop Garth from taking a beating on Twitter:

Of course, some were quick to point out that Garth didn’t endorse anybody and hasn’t even agreed to do the COVID commercial. Jason Isbell called on folks to actually read the article before making comments.

Others pointed out that Garth performed at the Obama inauguration back in 2009 and declined to perform at Trump’s in 2016 due to a scheduling conflict with his shows in Cincinnati.

Either way, the entire ordeal is illustrative of the EXTREMELY hyper charged political climate that we’re living in right now. Emotions run hot, facts go out the window and the media just throws gas on the fire.

What a time to be alive…

Oh, and by the way, even Dennis Quaid said the Coronavirus PSA that he filmed was not be taken as an endorsement of Donald Trump.

“It was about the importance of wearing a mask, about social distancing, and was in no way political. I was not paid one penny for doing this interview and neither was Dr. Anthony Fauci.”
