Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are residents of Tennessee. And according to TV Guide, when Underwood learned about the new Ag Gag bill she was outraged. What is it? The Ag Gag bill is an ordinance that will prohibit the use of undercover video cameras on farms and will in turn help to hide acts of animal cruelty that are taking place. But that’s not all. Preventing the use of undercover video cameras on farms will also help hide food and labor safety violations.
Underwood took to Twitter to voice her opinion on the matter. “Shame on TN lawmakers for passing the Ag Gag bill,” she tweeted. “If Gov. Bill Haslam signs this, he needs to expect me at his front door…Who’s with me?”
But the lawmakers didn’t take kindly to Underwood’s protest and were quick to fire back. Republican state representative, Andy Holt told an NBC affiliate that Underwood should stick to singing and leave the lawmaking to him.
Underwood heard about Holt’s comment and didn’t let it get by without a response. “I should stick to singing?” She wrote on Twitter. “Wow…sorry, I’m just a tax paying citizen concerned for the safety of my family.”
