Speaking to drag-queen host RuPaul Charles, Morris teared up, attacking her fellow country singers for their lack of acceptance of the various sexual lifestyles while failing to cite any specific examples of intolerance.
“Coming from country music and its relationship with LGBTQ+ members, I just want to say I’m sorry,” she said, according to Trending Politics.
“And I love you guys for making me feel like a brave voice in country music,” she continued. “So I just thank you guys so much for inspiring me.”
Morris later posted a tweet celebrating herself for her extraordinary virtue.
I’ve done some cool shit. #DragRace is rivaling it all. Getting my jacket framed next to my Grammy. It is DONE.

“I’ve done some cool s**t. #DragRace is rivaling it all. Getting my jacket framed next to my Grammy. It is DONE.”
This is not Morris’s first assault on her fellow country musicians, however.
Last summer, Brittany Aldean, the “unapologetically conservative” wife of country star Jason Aldean, called transgender transition surgeries “one of the worst evils.”
“Some parents want to be accepted by society so badly, that they’re willing to make life-altering decisions for their children who aren’t old enough to fully comprehend the consequences of those actions,” Aldean said at the time. “Love is protecting your child until they are mature enough as an adult to make their own life decisions.”
Morris responded by calling Brittany Aldean an “Insurrection Barbie” and a “scumbag human” via Twitter.
It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie.

Not content to limit her criticism to country music, Morris also previously engaged in a spat with former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure, a devout Christian who said that she wished to “keep traditional marriage at the core” of the American family.
