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?

    Talk about over sensitivity!!!! I thought it was funny and topical. Besides, being called a “Babe” isn’t exactly bad. Put on your big girl panties, and get over it, America!

    I thought their performance was subpar. The ashes thing was absurd.


    Someone thinks they are beyond important-over the sensitivity of others-look for something productive to do-quit microscoping every person and every word!


    I would have called him a freak. A lot kinder than I would have been in the joke.


    The joke was not offending. People that get offended by everything need to live in a bubble.
