Nashville publicity firm The GreenRoom has dropped Jason Aldean after the country singer’s wife made some are saying are transphobic remarks.
“Music has always been and remains The GreenRoom’s core focus, so we had to make the difficult decision after 17 years to step away from representing Jason,” GreenRoom co-owner Tyne Parrish told Billboard in a statement. “We aren’t the best people for the gig anymore, but will always be big fans of his music — he is one of the greatest live entertainers in country music.”
Last month, Brittany Aldean posted the following comments on Instagram.
“I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girl life.”
Jason Aldean replied, “Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”
Brittany Aldean continued on the topic in an additional post.
“Advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it ‘gender affirming care’ is one of the worst evils. I will always support my children and do what I can to protect their innocence,” she wrote. “The other day Memphis wanted to be a dinosaur and tomorrow Navy will want to be a cat. They’re children. 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. Thankful my parents allowed me to go through my tom boy phase without changing my gender.”
