Country singer Jason Aldean ‘will never apologize’ for his beliefs, he said on Instagram Friday, defending a post by his wife with pictures of the family wearing anti-Biden merchandise.
Brittany Aldean, 33, recently went public with her political views, sharing photos of herself and her children wearing shirts with slogans that take aim at President Joe Biden.
While many supported the photos, critics accused his wife, Brittany, of using her children as political pawns. Even some Trump supporters took issue with the fact the the Aldeans dressed their kids in anti-Biden T-shirts.
She posted Saturday on Instagram a picture of herself with her husband modeling a gray T-shirt that reads ‘Anti Biden Social Club’ — a conservative s in on the Anti Social Social Club streetwear brand.
In another picture, the couple’s children Navy, two, and Memphis, three, are holding hands in matching T-shirts that have ‘Hidin’ from Biden’ splashed across the front. She also struck a pose in a photo with Memphis, who is giving two thumbs up while his mom shows off the back of her shirt.
‘I will never apologize for my beliefs or my love for my family and country,’ Aldean captioned the post, pictured, which had nearly 225,000 likes as of Friday afternoon

Brittany Aldean captioned the images, ‘Rockin that @letmetakeyourselfie merch’, tagging the maker of the pro-Trump clothing line. She also linked to DaddyT45 — the website where the shirts are sold — on her Instagram Stories.
A picture of Memphis modeling the children’s shirt is now featured on the site, which also has a photo of former President Donald Trump holding a gun.

The shirts were a hit with conservative celebrities, including commentator Tomi Lahren, who wrote: ‘Boom!!!’
‘Omggggg,’ responded commentator Candace Owens, who added laughing emojis for good measure. ‘I love you wayyyy too much!’
Meanwhile, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kim Zolciak-Biermann and country singer RaeLynn commented with a series of heart-eye emojis.
While there were plenty of fans of the photos, critics accused Brittany of using her children as political pawns, including some Trump supporters.

‘I’m a huge Trump fan but using your kids when they don’t know a thing about politics that’s just wrong,’ one person wrote. ‘Y’all need to be more mature.’
‘Ugh! Why do you do that to your kids? I like Jason and his music. Not his politics. Usually just scroll on by his political posts. But doing this to innocent kids is not right.’
This is the second time that Brittany has promoted the brand in less than a week. Last Thursday, she shared photos of herself modeling a pro-Trump T-shirt from the line.
The black tee features ‘USA’ written in red on the front while the back has her last name and the number ’45’ — a reference to Trump being the 45th president.
The post caught the attention of the former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who responded with a series of fire emojis.
Jason and Brittany married in 2015 and welcomed their son, Memphis, in 2017 and daughter, Navy, in 2019. The Grammy-nominated singer also has two older daughters, Keeley, 18, and Kendyl, 14, with his ex-wife Jessica Aldean, whom he divorced in 2013.

Brittany Aldean has long been vocal about her political views, and this isn’t the first time she has bashed Biden. According to Fox News, she faced backlash for showing her support for Trump after the 2020 election.
She posted a video to her Instagram Story that showed her wearing a sweatshirt with Trump’s name on it next to an American flag, writing: ‘STILL MY PRESIDENT.’
She later shared a note claiming that the criticism she received led many people to privately message her about their support for Trump.
‘I personally don’t give a damn if people don’t agree with me,’ she shared at the time. ‘I think it’s important now more than ever to stand for what you believe, even if it “goes against the grain.”
‘Do your research, and form your own opinion — speak out if you wish. But most importantly, don’t bully people who feel differently than you.’
