Maren Morris raised over $150,000 for transgender youth after Tucker Carlson’s insult

Well Played!

Fox’s Tucker Carlson called country star Maren Morris a “lunatic” after she defended transgender kids — so she used the insult to raise over $150,000 for organizations supporting transgender youth.

Carlson called Morris a “lunatic country music person” after she responded to comments referencing transgender youth made by country singer Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany Kerr Aldean.

“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,” wrote Aldean in the caption of a makeup video posted to Instagram.

Morris partnered with GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization, and Trans Lifeline to release a shirt emblazoned with the words “Lunatic Country Music Person.”

Proceeds from the shirt will go toward GLAAD’s Transgender Media Program and Trans Lifeline, which runs a hotline for transgender youth in crisis and provides micro-grants and support for transgender people in need.
