Carrie Underwood drew harsh criticism online for liking an anti-mask mandate tweet made by conservative blogger Matt Walsh.

The 38-year-old singer showed her support for Walsh's words with a simple heart reaction to his two-minute long clip addressing the Nashville School Board last week.

Fans were not pleased upon realizing their American Idol supported anti-mask sentiments despite the ongoing global pandemic where COVID-19 has killed more than four million people worldwide, with cases of the highly contagious Delta variant surging throughout the world.

In the video, Walsh makes numerous false statements while addressing the Board of Education, including that COVID poses 'almost no risk to our kids at all' with 'only .008' deaths out of more than four million child cases. He noted that making children wear masks can be classified as 'child abuse,' with rounds of applause from the parents attending the meeting.

'What if a parent forced his kid to wear a football helmet all day everyday, for fear of falling coconuts and meteors?' he tried to argue. 'If you saw that, you would say he's abusive.'

He continued to criticize the school board for 'teaching them that the air is toxic, that everyone around them is sick.'
