For three days now I've been hearing about all hell breaking loose on Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr's Instagram pages. I've been meaning to write up the story, but the info was still coming into my inbox so I put it off a bit. Besides that, I'm pretty much over this whole thing anyway. Well this morning Ashley wrote about Jason finally speaking up about his relationship with Kerr, so I figured now was as good a time as any to get on the ball.
I'm torn in this story because I think Jason is right when he wrote on Instagram: life goes on. It's time to move on people.
I think it really is time for fans (and ex-fans) to move on. It's shitty what happened, but at some point people have to realize that it's old news and it's Jason's life and in the bigger scheme of things, it's none of our business. Unfortunately, Jason and Brittany seem to spend a lot of time on social media defending themselves to the haters and hating on the haters right back. It makes it hard to call it old news when Jason spends his time reacting to the negativity himself.
Does he have a right to defend himself? Of course he does. But when you choose to pit yourself against the internet and all the hate that flows there sometimes, you can't exactly expect the story to just go away. Sometimes the best course of action against haters is to just ignore them, live your life, and move on.
Oh, and maybe lose your social media passwords for a while.
Here's the picture that started all the chaos. It's Jason, Brittany, and Brittany's neices. Apparently some people thought Jason should be with his daughters rather than Brittany's family.
And here are a couple of the screenshots of Jason and Brittany fighting with fans/ex-fans on Instagram that I've received. Most of the comments have since been deleted. Screenshots, however, don't tend to go away.
