Singer Maren Morris blasts country music culture as hateful, suggests female fans have ‘internalized misogyny’

Singer Maren Morris elaborated on her recent decision to distance herself from the “misogynistic and racist” country music industry, during a New York Times’ podcast on Wednesday.

“The Middle” singer claimed last month that the “Trump years” exposed the bigoted views of people in the industry which led to her giving up on the genre. She clarified to the Times this week that she was not leaving country music entirely but did not want to “participate” in the “really toxic” industry which propped up “White men.”

“When I zoomed out, just in looking at cold, hard facts, numbers stats,..[I realized] this is getting significantly worse each year for people on the margins, women,” Morris said. “Women on the radio, people of color, just anyone who is not [a] White male,” she added on the NYT popcast

She questioned if the female fans she sees at country music shows held bigoted views against their own sex.
