Just another reason why you don't mess with Carrie Underwood!!!
A couple of weeks ago we reported how Carrie was pissed about an ag gag bill getting passed by Tennessee lawmakers.
The ag gag bill would've made it basically impossible for animals rights activists to secretly document abuse.
Carrie was so mad back then she said she would show up at Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's house if it was passed!
Well, Bill made sure that didn't happen.
His office has released this statement:
Ginnifer Goodwin has stepped up and is voicing her opposition to the ag gag bill in Tennessee.
She joins the likes of Carrie Underwood in her plea for Tenn. Governor Bill Haslam to veto the bill.
If you haven't heard somehow, in Tennessee there's a bill trying to make it so animal abuse whistleblowers have to turn their evidence over to police within 48 hours of learning of the abuse or risk facing charges themselves.
The whole point of this bill is to make it so farm industry abuse is harder to document because two days isn't enough time to document ongoing, systemic abuse.
We'd be lying if we said we hadn't heard this before, but this time it comes with the weight of a super nice celebrity's truth: rescue dogs are the best kind of dogs!
Honestly, it's as if they know they've been rescued — and are amazingly gracious for it!
That's how Carrie Underwood feels about her pooch, responding to what kind of dog it is with the following:
Carrie Underwood is a champion for those who cannot fight for themselves: the animals!
We previously mentioned that a bill had been passed by the Tennessee legislature that would force whistleblowers to release undercover video of animal abuse to the police within 48 hours of capturing it.
The problem is that animal rights activists say that 48 hours isn't enough time to show an ongoing pattern of abuse.
Because the bill was passed, it's now up to Governor Bill Haslam to sign it into law or veto it.
We previously told y'all about the beef Carrie Underwood had with a proposed bill that would make undercover animal investigations potentially illegal.
Which made one local politician, Andy Holt, very unhappy. Here's what he said:
“I would say that Carrie Underwood will stick to singing, I’ll stick to lawmaking.”
Aww hell no!
You know our country girl ain't gonna take too kindly to that! And we were right!
Here's what Carrie tweeted back:
We previously mentioned that there has been a lot going on in the world of politics regarding ag gag bills.
These are laws that would make it illegal to undercover document animal abuse and not turn it over to police within 48 hours.
The problem with the law is that 48 hours doesn't give an undercover whistleblower enough time to gather sufficient evidence to show a pattern of constant abuse.
Well Tennessee lawmakers have recently passed a similar bill and Carrie Underwood is very disappointed!
Carrie Underwood sometimes seems unreal.
She's THAT talented.
But she's real alright.
And like all real people - she's got dreams like the rest of us.
And one of her dreams is a farm house, and she's in the middle of building one!
Here's what she said:
