Carrie Underwood is receiving backlash from hockey fans over what seemed to be a pretty innocent tweet in support of her husband Mike Fisher’s team, the Nashville Predators.

Underwood tweeted out her support for the Preds after they lost 3-2 to the St. Louis Blues during an NHL game on April 28, though some fans weren’t happy that Carrie appeared to attribute the Blues’ win over the Predators to the referee.

As reported by The Tennessean, Underwood’s initial tweet got her in a little bit of hot water with some hockey fans after she tweeted that the St. Louis Blues could “thank the ref for this win” after Mike and his teammates lost before she then deleted her initial tweet.

A number of fans captured screen shots of Carrie’s initial message on the 140-character site, including NHL account @ScoutingTheRefs who reposted Underwood’s initial message alongside the caption, “Looks like @carrieunderwood was not a fan of tonight’s zebras…”

Others were quick to call out the star, whose husband Mike is the captain of the Nashville Predators, claiming that Carrie’s seemingly pretty innocent tweet meant that she was being “petty” after Mike and the Predators didn’t take home a win on the night.

“Petty #deletedtweet,” hockey fan @MatthewLong tweeted with a screen shot of Carrie’s initial message, while @SportsChick15 wrote of Underwood, “Dang. Lost respect for @carrieunderwood. Apparently losing gracefully isn’t in her vocabulary… Hey @PredsNHL y’all should offer lessons.”
