'Unbelievable And Ridiculous': Jason Aldean's Wife Brittany Irate After Antifa Conspiracy Theory About Capitol Riots Shut Down By IG
Country crooner Jason Aldean's wife, Brittany, is stirring up controversy by promoting an unfounded theory on the riots that took place at the U.S. Capitol.
Mere hours after Donald Trump supporters stormed the building on January 6 to protest the results of the election, the mom of two posted an image on Instagram of two rioters with the caption, "Antifa disguised as Trump supporters. Shocker.”
The star is hardly the only one to push the conspiracy, which stemmed from an article in The Washington Times claiming facial recognition software XRVision identified the two men as Antifa members. But soon after, XRVision debunked the claim, and asked for the publication to apologize and remove the incorrect article from the web.

“Instagram wanted me to know that it was against their guidelines to post,” she stated in a video. “It’s getting so ridiculous the filters you put on everyone that’s against your narrative. It’s unbelievable and it’s ridiculous. It’s just really sad what this world’s coming to.”
Then on January 11, she hinted at the messy situation yet again. "Apparently freedom of speech doesn't apply to everyone and that's the issue I have. I have AMAZING conversations with my liberal friends and we can agree to disagree," she said on Instagram. "It's the people that aren't willing to hear you that chap my a**."

The violent scene in Washington, D.C., resulted in the deaths of at least six people, including two police officers — one of which reportedly died by suicide.
Since then, countless politicians and Americans have been calling for Congress to invoke the 25th amendment to pull Trump from office. And now, it seems like they could be moving ahead on impeaching him for the second time.
The President's Twitter account was also permanently suspended "due to the risk of further incitement of violence."
