Carrie Underwood’s husband, hockey star Mike Fisher, is defending his wife against an online bully who called out the country superstar following her ACM Awards performance on April 3.
Fisher took to Twitter to defend Underwood against a social media hater on April 4 who outrageously claimed that the country superstar looked “satanic” during her stunning performance on “Church Bells” on the country music awards show.
Mike Fisher responded to a tweet by Janet Thompson, who describes herself on the 140-character site as a “Christian author/speaker,” on the social media site after Thompson asked “What happened to that sweet Christian girl?”
“Woa what was Carrie Underwood’s outfit for Church Bells on the CMA?” Thompson wrote on April 3, confusing the Academy of Country Music Awards for the Country Music Association Awards, adding, that Carrie “looked satanic almost? What happened to that sweet Christian girl?”
Fisher then hit back at the social media user on his own official Twitter page, noting that he was “sad” that the self-proclaimed Christian would judge Carrie based on her choice of performance outfit at the country awards show.
“Sad to see you judge your sister is Christ,” Mike Fisher tweeted back to Thompson, “If you only knew her heart!”
While Underwood herself is yet to respond to the social media drama, Fisher’s social media message to Carrie’s hater comes just weeks after the “Smoke Break” singer took to Instagram to defend her close friend and trainer, Erin Oprea, against an online troll.
After Erin was publicly shamed for working out whilst watching her son play in a soccer game, Carrie publicly defended her friend in a lengthy post on the photo sharing site.
“Way to go, Erin! Use someone else’s negativity to help others. That man obviously has a big problem… with himself,” Carrie wrote in the photo’s caption on March, “I only hope he can learn to like himself someday so he can be an adult and stop bullying others for bettering themselves!”
Underwood spoke out about her decision to defend her friend during a recent press conference prior to a recent concert for Country to Country Festival at London’s O2 arena, where Carrie told media that she stood by her decision to call out Oprea’s social media hater.
“It’s not like I was looking for any reason to say anything, but if you catch somebody saying really nasty things about your friend, obviously it’s gonna be like ‘Woah woah, excuse me!’ ” Carrie Underwood said at the time.
“I’m just like anybody else, if I see somebody not being nice, somebody that I care very much about, I’m gonna have a problem with it!,” Underwood added.
Carrie Underwood’s response came just days before she found herself on the receiving end of social media haters herself earlier this month which saw her delete a selfie from her Instagram page after receiving a slew of negative comments about her appearance.
In a screenshot of the comments left on Underwood selfie, which showed her looking happy and healthy ahead of a concert in Oslo, Norway, Instagram users could be seen accusing Carrie of having a “nose job” and a “chin job,” while one comment even called the country star a “drag queen.”
Before Carrie deleted the snap from her page entirely, the screen capture showed Underwood respond to a comment that noted that it’s “such a shame that as women we can’t empower one another” on social media. “Right? Thank you,” Carrie replied to the fan.
