Conservative commentator Candace Owens took aim at country singer Maren Morris, vowing to “be the first one to call the police” if the Grammy Award-winning artist tries to transition her child.
The remarks from Owens, a self-described “proud Karen,” came after Morris appeared at the Love Rising LGBTQ+ benefit concert in Nashville and announced that she would be introducing her three-year-old son “to some drag queens” and dared Tennessee, to “f**king arrest” her.
As BizPac Review reported, GOP lawmakers in the Volunteer State advanced a bill last month to ban drag shows on public property.

Earlier this month, Republican Gov. Bill Lee signed the bill into law, making Tennessee the first state in America to do so.
Minors in the state will no longer be able to attend adult cabaret performances, defined as those that feature “topless dancers, go-go dancers, exotic dancers, strippers, male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest, or similar entertainers,” CNN reported.
Though many received it as a commonsense law, decrying its passage became the virtue signal du jour in Nashville, giving the artists who appeared at the Saturday concert something new to protest.
“I brought my son here earlier today for soundcheck, and he’s turning 3 this week, and we got to go in the room where all the queens were getting ready and doing their makeup,” Morris told the crowd. “And he freaked out when he went in there because it’s just magic what drag queens do.”
“Yes, I introduced my son to some drag queens today,” she stated, “so Tennessee, f**king arrest me.”

Owens was not impressed.
On the Wednesday edition of her eponymous podcast, the outspoken host accused Morris of “pandering” to the woke mob.
“The pandering here is just absolutely ridiculous,” Owens said, pointing to a previous apology Morris made on behalf of country music to the LGBTQ+ community while appearing on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
“Why don’t you go work on some songs, turn out some hits, and get people to want to follow you and admire you based on you living a wholesome life and based on you having actual talent?” Owens asked. “Not based on you pandering to the LGBTQ+ community while disrespecting the fans that even put you in the position that you are in today. Country music fans. How disgusting…”
Owens predicted Morris will eventually “trip herself up” and get herself into trouble with the law — and when she does, the host pledged to be there.
“I do hope that she keeps leaning to this side because, eventually, she will trip herself up,” Owens said. “Eventually, she will admit to doing a crime, which as we’ve seen happen over and over again. People are so radical… Eventually, they admit they’ve done something wrong. And let me tell you something right now, Maren Morris, when you do, I will be the first one to call the police and contact the governor’s office.”
“I am a proud Karen, a proud defender of children,” she declared. “So when you take that next step, I don’t know, maybe you’re gonna help your child transition, so that you can hold them up on stage and say, ‘Looky, looky, my child is trans.’ Please know that it will be Candace Owens, proud Karen, number one that will call the police on you and your husband.”
