Carrie Underwood is facing backlash for her response to a speech on mask warrants for children.

As coronavirus cases have started to rise again and schools resume for the fall semester, mask mandates have been a hot topic, especially whether children should be required to wear masks in school.

Underwood, herself a mother of two young boys, appears to have recently liked a video on Twitter shared by media personality Matt Walsh containing a video of a speech that he denounced such warrants.

The tweet was posted on August 12 and remains the singer’s most recently loved tweet on Tuesday night.

Days after the “American Idol” champion, 38, liked the tweet, screenshots of her interaction with Walsh’s post went viral, eliciting an intense backlash from fans.

“So Carrie Underwood is an anti-masker?” said a Twitter user in response. Referring to one of the country star’s early hits, they added, “Jesus is getting behind the wheel indeed.”

“Carrie Underwood being an antimasker, it’s just sad”, wrote another. “The only country singer I can trust is Dolly Parton.”

“Carrie Underwood please listen to Dolly Parton on this one and put a mask on your kid !!!!!!!!!!” a third added.

Dolly Parton has become something of a health care symbol since the start of the pandemic after donating $ 1 million for vaccine development and continually pushing for safety measures against the virus.

Yet another wrote: “I thought you were a caring person, @carrieunderwood I see I was seriously wrong.”

While many have spoken out against the star, some supported her while others questioned whether the opposing mask mandates were a surprising point of view for Underwood.

“Are you the guys who are surprised by Carrie Underwood though?” we wrote while another shared: “I’m a liberal and I love and still support @carrieunderwood, anyone you hate can just STFU !!! Leave her alone and grow up !!!! Damn people! You’re all ridiculous! Carrie, you’re always amazing to me no matter what !!!!

Representatives for Underwood did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Walsh has addressed the backlash multiple times on Twitter, slamming those who take it out on the singer and mockingly calling him to “give up on me and apologize”.

Underwood has kept a low profile politically, telling The Guardian in 2019 that she felt people were trying to “pin” her political preferences.

“I try to stay away from politics if possible, at least in public, because no one wins,” she said at the time. “It’s crazy. Everyone’s trying to sum it all up and put a bow on it, like it’s black and white. And it’s not like that.”
