I think it’s safe to say that Jason Aldean probably isn’t a big fan of Maren Morris.
And apparently his fans aren’t either.
The feud between Aldean and Morris actually started when Aldean’s wife, Brittany, shared a video to Instagram of her trying some of her beauty products with the caption:
“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”
The post garnered a number of likes and comments with Jason responding:
“Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”
The post received a number of positive comments and likes from Lara Trump, the wife of Donald Trump’s son Eric, RaeLynn, Summer Pardi, and more.
However, the post didn’t go over quite so well for the likes of other country artists, including Cassadee Pope, who shared to Twitter:
“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.”
Maren Morris then responded to Pope’s tweet, calling Brittany Aldean “Insurrection Barbie.”
“It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ons and zip it, insurrection Barbie.”
Brittany then responded on her Instagram story, tagging Maren Morris in a post calling her “Karen Morris” and thanking her for calling her Barbie:
Jason then jumped into the fray, commenting on one of Brittany’s Instagram posts calling her “MY Barbie”:
The drama has also resulted in Maren saying that she doesn’t know if she’ll attend the CMA Awards this year, saying that she doesn’t feel comfortable going right now and that she feels like defending country music is like being in an abusive relationship.
Well last night during his tour stop at Bridgestone Arena, Jason Aldean gave Maren a special shoutout during his show – and his crowd made their opinion on Maren known loud and clear.
While teasing a special guest, Aldean began naming some of his “friends” in Nashville that he thought about calling to join him onstage for the show:
“I though man, who could I call? I got some friends in town…
I could call Luke Bryan. I could call Kane Brown. See if Kenny Chesney’s here and not at the beach.”
He then named Maren Morris, which brought out a loud chorus of boos from the crowd at Bridgestone Arena.
Aldean eventually ended up revealing his special guest to be Morgan Wallen, who joined Aldean on stage to perform Wallen’s hit “Whiskey Glasses,” as long as Aldean’s 2018 single “You Make it Easy.”
But Wallen wasn’t the only special guest during the show: Aldean was also joined onstage by Miranda Lambert to perform the duo’s 2018 duet “Drowns the Whiskey.”
