After refusing to ban Bud Light in his Nashville bar Friends In Low Places Bar & Honky Tonk, vocal Right wing activists were quick to criticize Brooks — which is amusing, as the singer has been a vocal supporter of LGBTQ+ rights long before the Bud Light controversy even existed.
Now a video of Brooks advocating donating to the Ukraine war alongside Trisha Yearwood that was posted in 2022 was resurfaced on Twitter by the political podcast Shipwreck Show and drawing new criticism, despite the fact that it’s nothing new.
Millionaires Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood want you to dig deep in your pockets and give to Ukraine while your families struggle to put food on the table, pay your mortgage and keep the lights on during a borderline recession. pic.twitter.com/g5QeyKo870

In fact, folks are attacking this video like it just happened this morning, with some quoting the bible and referring to the two country singers as “false prophets.” Others said that supporting the Ukraine is “just a big kick back scheme for the DC elites.”
Garth Brooks is really going down the drain with all his anti American crap every real American knows that Ukraine is just a big kick back scheme for the DC elites the best way to end that war is stop sending support and lock up all the DC criminals. https://t.co/KuoHeqcPjz

In another line of attack, some swear that Brooks had to cancel his Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace because, well, “go woke, go broke.” According to the Caesar’s Palace official website, the residency is alive, well, and Brooks is performing his next show on July 20 at 8 PM.
This is for all those people on the right who swear that Garth Brooks is hurting because they’re boycotting him, etc. The man is worth $400 million and he’s not canceling his Vegas residency. Get over yourselves. You’re not that important. pic.twitter.com/9ZwneVKA5h

Several posters also shared stories about the cancellations via the Dunning-Kruger Times, a website so well known for its satire of real life events that people falling for its stories is known as the “Dunning-Kruger Effect.”
In other words, much to the dismay of the Right, Brooks is in fact not crumbling from the weight of his political views, but getting along just fine.
