Singer Carrie Underwood recently ended up in the hospital with a broken wrist, after she took a spill down the front steps of her Nashville home.
The accident happened just days after hosting the Country Music Association Awards with Brad Paisley, during which the pair performed a head-turning political twist on her hit “Before He Cheats” (changing out “cheats” for “tweets”).
The song was a dig at President Donald Trump, and some believe the joke came back to bite her.
While Underwood attempted to thank her well-wishers on Facebook after her accident, some fans skipped the “feel better” messages and took aim at her Trump jokes.
In fact, one person went so far as to claim it was “karma” that caused the accident.
Karma from making fun of your president. A godly person wouldnt do that.
Another commenter added:
Did not think that you would participate in disrespecting our president. I was disappointed. Hope you feel better though.
One man recommended that Underwood steer clear of politics:
Hey carrie, keep politics out of music. You really screwed the pooch this time! No one asked you in the first place! Of course you could always run for president if you think you can handle it.
Winning a contest for loudmouths would certainly qualify you for the DNC.
I will never buy your music again. If I hear it on the radio, I'm changing the station.
You're not the brightest bulb in the box, are you?
And another gave the singer some advice:
Not a very good way to keep fans. We have to many liberals who feed off these comments with all the fake news. You should retract or stay with the people who don't respect the USA or it's leader.
Another commenter wrote:
Don't know what you said but if you disrespected our president even if someone “ just wrote it for you to say” that is unAmerican and I can no longer respect/follow you. I thought you were above all of that. Very sad.
But of course, her fans went into defense mode when she was attacked for ripping on the president during the award show opening.
One woman said she was surprised people would drag her CMA monologue into her fall:
I can't believe people are saying she got hurt because she joked about Trump. Is that the Christian viewpoint? That God threw her down the stairs for revenge? Unreal. Give me a break. WTF is wrong with people? Get well, Carrie, and ignore the insanity.
Another defended the singer's CMA jokes:
Oh my god....EVERY BODY makes jokes about the president...they did it for every president. Grow the hell up. She just reads what's written. I'm impressed and grateful that NO other remarkes were made by ANYONE.
One commenter said:
Holy crap you guys with the pitch forks! a) it was a joke. b) award shows have writers and are scripted. They didn't just randomly make it up on the spot. c) if you stop being a fan because of this stupid little thing, were you really a fan to begin with?
Another was confused about how Underwood's post thanking her fans turned into a bashfest on the singer:
People. Why are you talking about this crap. This is Carrie thanking people for well wishes after her fall. You want to be negative Go somewhere else.
Underwood is back home healing after being released from the hospital — with her husband, Mike Fisher, by her side.
