Garth Brooks Supporting Sander Controversy Was He Trolling Country Fans or Was It Innocent

Recently hundreds of people have launched digital attacks on Garth Brooks for wearing a Barry Sanders jersey in Detroit. Which would be a big deal except, the masses mixed up the Oklahoma State/NFL Hall of Fame football player, with democratic front-runner Bernie Sanders. But was this an innocent misconception or was Garth finally calling out the internet’s toxicity?


First of all, if you aren’t familiar with Barry Sanders, welcome to the club. Here is a little teaser into this legendary NFL player’s life.

Garth Brooks showed Detroit his love when he stopped by Ford Field for his concert for 70,000 people. One way he portrayed his devotion was by wearing: A Barry Sanders No. 20 jersey, in tribute to the legendary Detroit Lions running back and fellow Oklahoma State University alum. 

Now the internet had a field day over the picture below.


Now I have tried all day to search for the hate Garth Brooks received but a lot of it has been deleted, thank God! But that doesn’t mean the screenshots don’t exist. Tony Posnanski Tweeted “Garth Brooks wearing a Barry Sanders jersey In Detroit loses fans because his MAGA fans think it’s a Bernie Sanders Jersey. I can’t anymore.”

But this video does exist, jeez Brent. Calm down.


Was Garth Trolling Country fans or Was It An Innocent Mistake?

Before you jump on my throat, Charlotte Clymer tweeted this, not me “Me, a lifelong fan of country music and raised in the South: Do people know that most conservatives already despise Garth Brooks for his liberal politics? A mistaken Barry Sanders jersey is a funny example, but it doesn’t change much.”

Do you agree with that assessment? Let’s end it on a lighter note with finally, Barry Sanders responding to it himself.
