Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood under fire for Caitlyn Jenner joke


You probably could have guessed that the CMA Awards euphoria wouldn’t last forever. Now comes the show’s first scandal that didn’t involve Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s choice of timing for their we’re-dating announcement.

If you watched the awards show last night, you probably caught Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley singing a “Cray, Cray” song about all the craziness going on lately. In it, they mentioned the Nae, Nae, man buns, the tomato controversy (AKA #Saladgate), Trump leading in the polls, and then there was a Caitlyn Jenner joke where they sang about how Bruce Jenner’s a babe now.

As you can imagine, that one line didn’t go over very well and the pair are now being labeled Transphobic.

There are a lot more comments floating around, but you get the idea. So far neither Carrie or Brad have commented on the brewing controversy, but I imagine it won’t be long before they do.

You can watch the video below to hear the joke. What do you think? Too much or no big deal?
