Country star Jason Aldean has been dropped by his public relations firm following the backlash against his wife Brittany Aldean’s social media post about transgenderism, despite her stating later that her comments were “taken out of context.”
The public relations firm that has represented the 45-year-old country singer for the last 17 years announced in a statement to Billboard magazine that they were no longer the “best people” for the job.
“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 [Aldean],” Tyne Parrish, co-owner of Nashville-based The GreenRoom shared.
“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,” he added.
It comes after the “Big Green Tractor” hitmaker’s wife shared a reel on Instagram in which she thanked her parents for not changing her gender during her “tomboy phase” in promotion of her new clothing line, “Don’t Tread On Our Kids.”
“I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase,” Aldean’s post read. “I love this girly life.”
Jason then stepped in and reacted to his wife’s post, “Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”
Brittany came under attack by several stars, including fellow country singer Maren Morris who suggested that the singer’s wife keep her mouth shut.
