There Appears To Be Drama In The Backstreet Boys Over One Of Them Being A Trump-Supporting QAnon Believer

2021 is off to a wild start.

There appears to be some drama brewing in the Backstreet Boys that I am FULLY invested in, so let's get right into it.

First of all, it appears Brian Littrell is a Trump supporter.

In 2017, TMZ asked Brian if he thought Trump would be a good president. Brian said, "I have faith in the system. I have faith in his character, his beliefs, and his balls. Let's just put it that way."

His...balls.

He also said, "Hollywood needs to chill out. We're talking about the commander in chief. We're talking about respect."

Brian told TMZ that "they*" asked him personally to ask the other Backstreet Boys to perform at Trump's 2016 inauguration. It didn't work out, but Brian said he wanted to do it.

Fast-forward to two days after the Capitol riots.

In case you didn't know or somehow don't have an aunt who has been completely indoctrinated by blurry Facebook memes, "QAnon" is a group of people that believe in conspiracy theories surrounding a supposed government insider named "Q."

Then there's Parler.

Parler is a social network that is used largely by conservatives and right wing extremists.

People who believe in QAnon can be found on Parler.

Which brings me back to Brian.

Two days after the Capitol riots, Brian tweeted that he was on Parler.

BTLittrell come find me... hahah like where’s Waldo Join me on Parler Social Media! https://t.co/QyHNCHhd5x

The overwhelming sentiment was...not good.

The other guys have subtly responded in their own ways.

Which brings me to Kevin.

A week after Brian joined Parler, Kevin tweeted a link to an article about losing a friend to QAnon.

Interesting read... 👀 ✌🏻❤️ https://t.co/WrLClXCFT4

The emojis have people believing this could be about Brian.

AJ, for his part, tweeted his support for Biden and Harris the morning before Brian posted his Parler account, which also is 👀.

The best part of waking up is BnH in your cup!! *insert Folgers melody* Happy Friday, y’all!!! @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris

Howie has tweeted this "sunnier days ahead" picture.

And Nick has just been posting random selfies and pictures of his kids.

A screenshot from a 2015 Backstreet Boys documentary of Nick screaming at Brian is circulating again, and some fans are saying it "makes sense now."

"Don't be a fucking dick like everyone knows you are. Don't you understand what I'm saying?"

Fans are looking at this fight in a whole new light.

@Clean_Man_93 @brian_littrell I've always wondered what Nick meant here. I thought he was referring to when Brian was his legal guardian on the road. Now I see it was more than that.

Brian's wife has also been brought into this. On her now-deleted Twitter account, she agreed with false claims that Antifa supporters were part of the riots.

She also responded to a tweet from AJ's wife, further amplifying her false claims.

And that's where we're at right now.

Is Brian a Q-loving Trump supporter who is causing major drama in the Backstreet Boys? I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Either way, 2021 is off to a great start!
