Justin Moore Defends Children, Hunting Rights in Twitter Argument
“You have no idea what my wife, daughter(s), family go through,” tweets Justin.
Justin Moore is a known fan of hunting, and even recently penned "This Is NRA Country," the theme song for the National Rifle Association. Unfortunately, when Justin shared his excitement about a hunting trip via Twitter, one of his Twitter followers didn't take too kindly to it.
“Thanks Montana for a great show. Listenin to bocephus on the bus. Gonna try to kill an elk here tomorrow," Justin tweeted after a concert in the Treasure State..
The tweet didn't go over well with one Twitter follower, Jason Tate (with the username Tatersauce) who responded, "Hope that right before u shoot it u look right in it’s eyes and see ur kids and think if that was them.”
Many parents would agree that the easiest way to get them riled up is to bring up their children in an argument, and Justin was no exception. Justin responded, "An animal ain't the same as my kid to me. You?" and followed up the tweet with, "Also, if you don't wanna offend me, don't EVER mention my kids again in that way . . . EVER. Pretty ignorant statement on your part.”
The heated words escalated from there, with more than 40 tweets exchanged between the two. Radio station WYRK posted all the exchanges on their website . At one point Tatersauce took a shot at what he considered Justin's rich lifestyle and called him both a hillbilly and an idiot.
“Cause like all fans, we like the music and stuff but know u people make ur $ then it's all about u and who cares about poor," tweeted Tatersauce, to which Justin responded, "Youve no idea what my wife, daughter(s), family go through. Dont pretend you do. I'm blessed, yes. But, it ain't what you think.”
Tatersauce wrote, “If I was illiterate then I wouldn’t be reading and sending tweets to a hillbilly. Or do u even know what that word means?”
Justin responded, “I do because I’m proud to be one. So are millions of my fans. You just offended me, and them.”
