Beloved country singer Garth Brooks got a lot of heat from fans following a recent performance at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan – which is the home of the Detroit Lions NFL team.

Donning an NFL jersey to honor former Detroit Lions player and 90s sports star Barry Sanders, Brooks shared a photo to his social media accounts saying:

“Detroit
You carried me all night long
But you always have
I’m in love with you! love, g”

The photo showed him off-stage just before he went on to perform. He was wearing the “Sanders #20” jersey and his signature black hat.

While most NFL fans would know Barry Sanders by his reputation and the striking blue color of the Detroit Lions jersey – many Trump-supporting fans took to the comments and berated Garth Brooks for “supporting Bernie Sanders.”

It’s clear that many of these folks wrongly assumed he was making a political statement – when, in reality, he was just trying to show some love to one of his favorite sports stars.

See some of these comments below and let us know what you think of this mess.
