Publicity firm the GreenRoom has parted ways with country superstar Jason Aldean after representing the singer for 17 years.
“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,” GreenRoom co-owner Tyne Parrish told Billboard in a statement. “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.”
GreenRoom’s decision follows a social media post by Aldean’s wife, influencer Brittany Aldean, that many considered transphobic.
In an Instagram post on August 23, Brittany captioned a before-and-after makeup video for her 2.2 million followers, saying, “I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life.”
Jason Aldean left a laughing emoji in the comments and replied, “Lmao!! Im glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”
Further to the post, Brittany also issued a lengthy statement on August 26, saying, “Advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it ‘gender affirming care’ is one of the worst evils.Love is protecting your child until they are mature enough as an adult to make their own life decisions.
Brittany later responded saying her comments had been “taken out of context.”
