Twitter is coming for America’s sweetheart.

Eagle-eyed users on Twitter noticed that Carrie Underwood (or someone with access to her account) liked a tweet from conservative commentator Matt Walsh opposing a proposed mask mandate in schools.

The tweet, which features a video of Walsh’s speech to the Metro Nashville Public School board, with the caption:

Here is my speech to the Nashville School Board where I spoke out against the cruel and indefensible mask mandate for children.”

And obviously, Twitter did what Twitter does and is now coming after Carrie for being “anti-mask” (and “anti-vaxx,” despite the tweet having nothing to do with vaccinations).

Of course there were also those who came to Carrie’s defense.

For his part, Walsh responded by mocking the outrage.

Just another sign of the world we live in these days.

And honestly, it’s just exhausting.
