In August of last year, comedian, actor and producer Billy Eichner shared a screenshot to Twitter revealing he had just been blocked by country artist Carrie Underwood.
He captioned the tweet:
At the time, Eichner did not provide an explanation, but his fans speculated—based on accounts Underwood followed—the block may have been political in nature.
On Monday, Eichner sat down with Andy Cohen to talk about his new movie Bros on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when a fan inquired about the famous block.
Eichner called being blocked by Underwood “a great honor.”
“Carrie Underwood blocked me on Twitter, which I consider a great honor. It was one of the great thrills of my life.”
Eichner then began to recount the incident.
“During the height of COVID, she retweeted a speech about how kids shouldn’t have to wear masks in schools, letting her political views be known for the first time.”
“I guess I made some jokes about that on Twitter, and she didn’t like that.”
