Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany doubles down on her controversial comments

Here we go again. Brittany Aldean, wife of country music star Jason Aldean, has doubled down on her recent comments despite widespread backlash from those who thought her words were transphobic. The drama began last week when the former Charlotte Bobcats cheerleader shared a makeup reveal video on Instagram with the odd caption: “I really want to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I was going through my tomboy phase went through. I love this girl’s life.” Long story short, her post caused a stir with its transphobic undertones. Maren Morris led the charge against Aldean, calling her a “scumbag” and calling her “riot Barbie” before other celebs jumped in A crowd jumped, including singer Brandi Carlile and “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness.

Seemingly unaffected by the feathers she’s ruffled, the fashion blogger shared an Instagram Story in response to the drama, and it looks like she’s decided to stick to her guns on the matter.

Brittany Aldean holds her ground

Brittany Aldean returned to the scene of the crime — her Instagram account — to share a quote originally posted by Robby Starbuck, a Republican pundit who is active online and has 231,000 followers on Twitter. Starbuck is best known for leading a congressional sign-in campaign, his tweets often invoking transphobia, and his calls to boycott Disney.

“If you’re silent about your beliefs because you’re afraid someone will be offended, then you don’t care as much about your beliefs as you do about what people think of you,” read the quote shared by Aldean (via Page Six) . “If you stand up for what is right and true, you will reap both hate and love, but everyone will know what you are fighting for.”

Aldean later shared another quote in the same vein as the first. It read in part, “When someone projects their anger onto you, it’s just a reflection of the sadness and brokenness inside.” It sounds a lot like that subtle hue was meant for Maren Morris, who was undoubtedly angry at Aldean.
