In an astonishing move, woke singer Maren Morris has just declared her departure from the country music scene, and she’s placing the blame on racism, transphobia, and former President Donald Trump for her decision.
In an exclusive interview with The Los Angeles Times, Morris launched scathing criticism at the country music industry, labeling it “misogynistic, racist, homophobic, and transphobic.”
She went on to denounce hit country songs, citing Jason Aldean’s “Try That in a Small Town” as an example of “toxic weapons” in the culture wars.
“Following the Trump years, people’s prejudices were laid bare,” the singer stated candidly. “It simply revealed people’s true colors, and they seemed proud to be misogynistic, racist, homophobic, and transphobic. All these things were celebrated, and it was oddly aligned with this hypermasculine branch of country music,” Morris elaborated.
She strongly believes that the current trajectory of the country music industry is self-destructive and is undermining the genre on its own.
“I thought about starting from scratch, burning it all down and rebuilding. But it’s in the process of self-destruction without my assistance. I’ve said everything I can say,” Morris declared resolutely.
Sharing her recent on-stage experience with pop star Taylor Swift, Morris expressed how it made her feel “safe” and spoke about the overwhelmingly supportive crowd at the event.
“It’s such a supportive crowd: 90 percent women and 10 percent gays and dads. I’ve never felt so safe at a live show before,” Morris confided to the LA Times.
Breitbart highlights that Morris has been an advocate for numerous “woke causes” over the past few years, including supporting “drag queen entertainment for children and even sex-change surgery for minors.”
During a recent appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race, she apologized for what she referred to as country music’s “relationship with LGBTQ[QIAAP2S]+ members.”
“Coming from country music and its relationship with, like, LGBTQ[QIAAP2S]+ members, I just want to say I’m sorry, and I love you guys for making me feel like a brave voice in country music. So, I just thank you guys for inspiring me. I’m gonna cry. I’m gonna go!” Morris emotionally expressed.
Notably, she previously clashed with fellow singer Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany over their stance on “gender-affirming” treatments for children. Morris criticized Brittany, calling her a “scumbag human” and “Insurrection Barbie.”
