CARRIE Underwood is under fire following a recent interaction on Twitter.
The country music star was seen liking a controversial tweet that was made by American comedian and actor, Matt Walsh.
Why is Carrie Underwood trending on Twitter?
Underwood went viral after a fan posted a screenshot of her likes page on Twitter revealing that she liked a post that related to denouncing school mask mandates.
Fans have called her actions “embarrassing and dangerous.”
The tweet was a video of Walsh at a Nashville school board meeting making a speech that including a number of false statements regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Here is my speech at the Nashville Scooll Board where I spoke out against the cruel and indefensible mask mandate for children,” Walsh tweeted alongside the video.
In the video, Walsh states that, Covid-19 poses “almost no threat to our kids at all,” and that making them wear masks can be classified as “child abuse.”
Underwood has yet to respond to the backlash she has received but Walsh has taken full notice of her viral fame thanks to him.
“Carrie Underwood liked my video and now the mob is coming for her,” Walsh said. “She should know better than to like something that they don’t like. This is an unforgivable sin.”
He followed up and tweeted: “How long before Carrie Underwood officially renounces me? I give it 12 hours, tops, I could be wrong though. I’m basing this on our general experience with celebrities who face public backlash from the left. In fairness, she could be the outlier. Time will tell.”
