As of Saturday morning (Sept. 3), the charity shirt had raised more than $100,000 for GLAAD’s Transgender Media Program and Trans Lifeline, according to a tweet from Morris. “Over $100,000 raised. Have a great Labor Day weekend, insanity,” she captioned the photo purchase link.

The item went on sale Friday night and raised $63,000 in just two hours. “You are all insane (or insane),” Morris tweeted. Cassadee Popewho was also involved in online spat with Brittany Aldean, took on the comments and wrote, “F— yea!! Thank you for doing this. It helps so many.”

Brittany Aldean came under fire in late August for a makeup video she posted on Instagram with the caption, “I really want to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girl life.”

In response, Pope tweeted: “You’d think celebrities with beauty brands would see the positives in including LGBTQ+ people in their messaging. But instead here we are, hearing someone compare their ‘tomboy phase’ to someone who wants to change. Really nice.” Morris responded in agreement to Pope’s tweet, writing: “It’s that easy not to be a scumbag? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Resurrection Barbie.”

After some back and forth between the three women, Brittany insisted that her words were “taken out of context” and later told Carlson that she is “advocating for children.”
