Maren Morris, who has dubbed Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany “Insurrection Barbie” in reference to their public spat over trans rights, isn’t holding back.
The 32-year-old singer said in a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, “Look, I’m not a victim in this and neither is she.” “However, I have no compassion for those who are mocked for wondering who they are, particularly young people. When these individuals go down, we can’t afford to stay down. There is no such thing as a peaceful opposition movement. I suppose I might have called her worse.”
It all began a month ago when Brittany uploaded an Instagram video showing a makeover and captioned it with some really harsh language.
When I was younger and going through my tomboy period, my parents did not force me to change my gender. It’s so much fun being a girl, Those were her words in writing. Her “spouse of “Trouble With Heartbreak” singer: “Lmao!! It’s a good thing they didn’t because else, things between you and I wouldn’t have gone well.”
On Twitter, Maren Morris added her commentary by referencing the film, stating, “Like, not being a scumbag human being is so simple, right? Throw away those clip-ins and shut up Insurrection Barbie.”
Several well-known people weighed in on the verbal conflict. The presenter of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker Carlson, called Maren Morris a “Lunatic Country Music Person,” and Brittany went on the show to explain her comments.

Maren Morris utilized the name for a new line of t-shirts; all revenues went to Trans Line Life, a nonprofit that helps transgender individuals in distress, and the Transgender Media Program at GLAAD, which helps the media represent transgender people’s experiences honestly. As of this writing, Maren Morris has amassed almost $150,000 in donations for the groups.
To further aid in the battle against child abuse and human trafficking, Brittany went on to manufacture and sell a collection of “Don’t Tread on Our Kids” shirts inspired by Barbiecore.
In a recent interview, Maren Morris said, “I hate feeling like I need to be the hall monitor of treating people like humans in country music.” “It’s a lot of work. However, there is a pervasive culture in which individuals believe they may safely express transphobia, homophobia, or racism in the context of a joke without fear of repercussion. People’s behavior eventually becomes the standard.”
In addition, “I was referring to the widespread stigma and misunderstanding that transgender adolescents face in our society. You can’t just say, “Oh, this is horrible, and this is excellent, and we can agree to disagree.” We can’t, and you’re being given misleading information. And remember, you may not be the one holding the gun, but the words you choose to say are still significant. To some extent, your misinformation is important. People who listen to such speech are certain they are mutilating children and refuse to do any research on the topic, which is why a bomb threat was recently made at a hospital in Boston.”
Maren Morris, a native Texan, claims she is generally unfazed by the backlash she’s gotten from Jason and Brittany’s fans in the aftermath of her statements and that her conservative friends and family members have contacted out to show their support. Kacey Musgraves, a fellow country singer, admits that she was the one who sent her the video of Brittany’s interview with Tucker Carlson through text message.
The worst people can say to me is, Oh, you must be a groomer then,” and the situation has quickly deteriorated to that point. It’s one of their favorite expressions, “what she has to say to her detractors, she says. “I’m a mom, and I believe that all parents are simply trying to give their children the best lives they can. You never know when they’ll come home in tears because they just don’t feel good in their skin.
And it’s very insensitive to make light of the situation when the parents involved are going through it. Reasons like those are why suicide rates are so high. To me, it makes no difference whether it’s satire or not. Nonetheless, they avoid discussing that aspect because it is too raw.”

Maren Morris’s Humble Quest is nominated for Album of the Year at the upcoming CMA Awards, while Jason’s “If I Didn’t Love You” a duet with Carrie Underwood is up for Musical Event of the Year.
Maren Morris has hinted that she may not attend the event on November 9.
I still haven’t made up my mind about whether or not to go. Having my album up for consideration is a huge honor for me. But I’m not sure whether I can call that place home” right now “The truth, Maren Morris has to acknowledge. “There will be a lot of people I care about there, and I could just decide to attend at the last minute. But I just don’t feel safe leaving here at the moment.”
The “Girl” artist suggests there are opposing camps in the country music scene today.
People, who aren’t familiar with the country music industry often ask me, What the heck is going on in Nashville right now with these people?” The standard response from me is, “There are less than you think.” I feel like I’m in an abusive relationship at times, but I keep trying to justify it by saying, “It’s not all awful!” But there are instances when you just have to call it out.”
Then she says, “Some individuals in the country music industry, I believe, would prefer that it remain a specialized genre. They’re opposed to any further development of the area. No one gives a hoot whether it’s made more welcoming to everybody. It belongs to them, and anybody who disputes this is other, awake, or whatever. This makes me sad because I believe that the heart of country music is the honest accounts of real people. No, I haven’t decided to live there or create music there because I believe just one group of people gets to live them out and enjoy them.”
