Carrie Underwood has fallen under fire for the second time in a week. The 37-year-old country superstar, clothing designer, and “Find Your Path” author took to the platform on Thursday with 2010-married husband Mike Fisher to deliver a coronavirus message –keep scrolling for the video. Encouraging her 9.5 million followers to “do your part, stay apart” may have seen the view-count climb to 1.2 million, but negative comments gained likes.
The backlash comes amid a storm Carrie managed to cause by promoting yoga pants from her 2015-founded Calia by Carrie athleisurewear line, with fans dubbing the “advertising” of her merch to be in poor taste during a global pandemic.
Video Says ‘God Bless’ And ‘Stay Home’
Carrie’s video (seen below) showed her home and seated with retired NHL star husband Mike. The “Cry Pretty” singer wore a simple black t-shirt and matching pants as she and Mike encouraged fans to do their part and social distance.
Mike asked viewers to stay “at home as much as possible,” with Carrie adding:
“That’s right. Working together, we can stop the spread of COVID-19.”
Mike added “God Bless.” Fans would likely argue that the video offered nothing but positivity. alongside the re-inforcement of government-recommended practices amid a pandemic that has now claimed over 58,000 lives worldwide.
‘Real Easy To Preach’ – $140 Million Net Worth Probed
The vast majority of comments – some even coming from first responders – saw Carrie’s followers thank her for taking the time to spread awareness.
“As a healthcare employee “Thank You” from all of us!🙏🏻,” one user wrote.
A comment gaining over 105 likes was less flattering.
“Real easy to preach this stay apart crap when you got tons of money and don’t have to worry about it,” the user wrote.
Also gaining likes was a trolling response suggesting that the “American Idol” winner had been paid to feature in the video.
“How much did they pay you to get on board with this agenda,” the fan asked.
Carrie has an estimated net worth of $140 million.
