Little Big Town Singer Comes to Taylor Swift’s Defense After Women’s March Backlash

A member of Little Big Town came to Taylor Swift‘s defense when she received backlash after tweeting about the Women’s March that took place on Jan. 21.

According to multiple media reports, millions of women and men protested worldwide, with the most prominent rally taking pace in Washington, D.C., the day after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The rallies were intended to support not only women’s rights, but human rights.

“So much love, pride, and respect for those who marched. I’m proud to be a woman today, and every day,” Swift shared on Twitter.

While many celebrities including Katy Perry, Madonna, Scarlett Johansson and Ashley Judd turned out to march, Swift received some heated comments on Twitter for her absence, with some calling her a “selective feminist” for what they perceived to be an easy stance that was not backed up by action.

Little Big Town singer Jimi Westbrook came to Swift’s defense in an interview published Wednesday (Jan. 25).

“None of us can understand what it’s like to live under that kind of scrutiny and all I can say is she’s an unbelievably talented woman with an extremely kind and generous heart and if she could have been there I’m sure she would have,” Westbrook tells the Australian Associated Press. “She’s always loving and accepting of everyone and does her best to show that love for everyone.”

Westbrook’s wife and bandmate, Karen Fairchild, was among the country stars who supported the Women’s March via social media.

Little Big Town are friends and fans of Swift, and she wrote their current single, “Better Man.”

While Little Big Town defended Swift, Wynonna Judd shared her opinion on the protests after her sister Ashley went viral for her recitation of a four-minute free-form poem titled “Nasty Woman.” The country star said she wants to be “part of the solution, not the problem,” saying, “the whole thing is toxic.” Check out her comments below.
