Fans Call for Boycott After Two Country Music Stars Push for Gun Control

Two of country music’s biggest stars are now abandoning their fan base, and pushing for gun control.

The Tennessean reported that Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard are voicing their support for Congress to enact universal background checks in an effort to end gun violence.

Both Nashville-based country music stars are directing fans to the TOMS’ apparel company website, asking them to send a pre-written postcard about the push to their respective legislators.

According to TOMS, the company is giving $5 million to organizations across the country committed to ending gun violence.

Tyler Hubbard took to Instagram, and created a video urging his supporters to push for gun control. Hubbard claimed his video was not “political,” but “humanitarian.”

Watch the video:

Fans of the singers were not happy with the gun control campaign and some called for a boycott.

Just shut up and sing!

Country Music Stars and desert fans & push , give $5 million to radical gun control groups.

Their fans need to desert them. This fan won’t ĺisten to them ever again.

Lol, as a country music singer, you can’t voice your opinion on pro gun control and expect to keep your fans. Just saying

I’ve seen some reporting on @FLAGALine saying that “country artists” are supporting gun control, the problem is they’re not country. Hopefully this acts as a wake-up call for the state of country music.

Two of country music’s biggest stars have turned their backs on fans by supporting a new gun control campaign.

Both Dierks Bentley and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard voiced their support on social media for the Toms shoes and apparel company’s “End Gun Violence Together” campaign.

The campaign, as seen on the Toms website, promises to give $5 million to anti-gun organizations.

Through the website, customers can also send electronic postcards to their representative asking for “universal background checks.”

“As your constituent, I urge you to stand with me and pass this life-saving legislation,” the postcard reads.
