From Jay-Z and T.I. to Adam Levine and Lady Gaga, there have been numerous artists who have stood up in support of making same-sex marriage legal. So when American Idol alum Carrie Underwood expressed her support for gay marriage in an interview with UK newspaper, The Independent, it didn’t seem like it would be much of a surprise, right? Wrong! When her conservative fans discovered the news, they took to the internet to criticize the “Blown Away” singer for her stance on the issue.

“@carrieunderwood Is a disgrace. Being vegan and supporting gay marriage doesn’t seem very country at all,” one tweeted.

“Jesus just let go of the wheel,” another said referring to Underwood’s song “Jesus, Take the Wheel.”
