Mickey Guyton, a 38-year-old country music star, was recently a victim of online racism. After she called the abuser out, fellow country music stars came out in support of Guyton, while Twitter has officially banned the offender’s account.
Last week, Mickey posted a screenshot of the abusive tweet captioned, “Started off 2022 with a good ole batch of racism. I show you this so you guys continue the fight for equality and love and acceptance.”
The tweet said, “We don’t want your kind in country music! All you people talk about is your g-d d-m race and skin color! Don’t you effers have Rap, Hip Hop & R&B? Gotta ruin and destroy s-t with your woke bs! Just like y’all did with MTV! Get the F out of our country music!”
Her fellow country artists were quick to rally around, with fellow African-American country star Jimmie Allen, saying, “Oh you know. just another Saturday for us. That fact that he took time out of his day to write this while having a video game have his profile pic. He’s a joke. Love sis.”
“Better Than We Found It” singer Maren Morris and Margo Price reminded the singer that she is “loved”.
Florida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard also chimed in, saying, “If only this person was educated on the history of country music. I’m sorry you have to see this BS. Rise above and keep crushing it. You are loved.”
Other artists who took time to silence the racists include The Cadillac Three‘s Jaren Johnston, Willie Jones, Cassadee Pope, Brittney Spencer, and Aaron Lee Tasjan.
