Instead of choosing to back down in the face of the massive controversy she has found herself in, Brittany Aldean chose to double down and create a merchandising opportunity out of the feud she is fighting with the left-wing cancel culture.
The wife of country music star Jason Aldean has chosen to double down on her stance against the carrying out of certain medical treatments for transgender kids by unveiling her new Barbie-inspired clothing line in a social media post. The limited-release clothing line consists of shirts and a sweatshirt sporting the phrase “Don’t Tread On Our Kids.”
“Per usual, my words have been taken out of context over the last week,” stated Aldean in the caption of her social media post. “Instead of getting twisted about the twisting of my words, I’ve chosen to bring some good out of it.”
She also mentioned that a significant portion of the sales for the new clothing line is slated to go to Operation Light Shine, which seeks to assist in the fight against human trafficking and child exploitation. The collection itself is being sold through the store at brittanyandkasi.com under the collection headline “TOMBOY.”
This whole event takes place just a single week in the wake of the controversy sparked when Aldean posted a video to social media with the caption saying, “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.”
Her statement kicked the left-wing hornet’s nest and caused a storm of critics to rush forth. Country star Cassadee Pope notably replied, “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.”
Which was quickly followed up by Maren Morris chiming in, saying, “It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie.”
None of this managed to scare Aldean away from her stance. She then posted a picture of herself that sported the caption, “I love y’all, that’s all.” Quite a few fans chimed in to voice their support and their agreement with her original comments. Her husband Jason jumped in with a comment saying, “MY Barbie!!.”
Aldean also took the chance to clarify her original statement. She stated, “Advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it ‘gender affirming care’ is one of the worst evils,” she stated in response to all the criticism.
“I will always support my children and do what I can to protect their innocence,” she went on. “Some parents want to be accepted by society so badly, that they’re willing to make life-altering decisions for their children who aren’t old enough to fully comprehend the consequences of those actions.”
“Love is protecting your child until they are mature enough as an adult to make their own life decisions,” concluded Brittany. “Thankful my parents allowed me to go through my tomboy phase without changing my gender. Until then, leave children alone!”
