Generally speaking, country music artists are nice, friendly and approachable, even when people cross boundaries. So, it’s pretty hard to imagine what could have happened that would spark anyone calling Chris Young an ass. But it happened.

A member of the increasingly outspoken Twitter community tweeted on Sept. 24, “In case y’all were wondering, @ChrisYoungMusic is an ass in real life too.”

There’s no explanation for the comment, no point of reference, just a short and not-so-sweet message … and a whole lot of Chris Young fans coming to his defense.

While we feel confident that Chris appreciates the fans’ support and love, he also managed quite well on his own by tweeting the disgruntled non-fan back. Like most good Southern gentlemen, he started with an apology, then followed with his own observation, saying, “Your statement kinda seems like you already thought I was an ass before meeting me so …,” then adding a shrugging man emoji at the end.

Ever the good guy, Chris retained his sense of humor when another fan tweeted their support and he jumped the gun on his response.
