Maren Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, have some thoughts for mommy-shamers who came after his wife this week.
People quickly began blasting Morris for holding a beer in the photo and asking why the baby wasn't wearing a life jacket. The tweet and Instagram post of the photo have both since been deleted.
“Honestly, I get so many criticisms of my motherhood on anything I post of Hayes, so I may just discontinue posting photos of him,” Morris tweeted on July 1. “Sucks but it's kind of where I'm at.”
“We talked about curbing posting photos anyway now that he's a little bit older,” the “Girl” singer continued in a reply to one supporter. “But the added crap from (mostly other moms) folks definitely forced our hand.”
Her husband then wrote his own series of tweets on the matter on July 2.
"I'd like to say, my wife usually doesn't need me to defend her, but she's a great mom, and my kid was not unsafe on a float in 1 feet of water being held by an adult with 5 people watching so she could get a picture," he wrote on Twitter.
He continued to explain that Hayes has two Coast Guard–approved life jackets and that “sometimes moms have a drink,” adding that “homegirl earned it.”
He signed off with a final tweet, writing, “later, nerds.”
Some fans replied to the singer, telling him not to mind the criticism. "Forget the haters Ryan! You and Maren are amazing parents and people who know you know that you would never EVER put Hayes in danger," one person responded on Twitter.
Although Morris's experience with mommy-shamers is a relatively new battle for Morris, she spoke to Glamour back in 2017 about the unfair scrutiny women in country music are subjected to about so many things—including their physical appearance, their clothes and their careers—despite how hard they work. “I’m hopefully opening up a floodgate of new artists, male or female, to be unique and authentic, and not a carbon copy of someone’s sound, look, or identity,” she said at the time. "Hopefully, my music has opened up a door for people who are outliers."
Frankly, people should think twice before they try and shame Morris—or any other mom for that matter.
