Carrie Underwood Blocked Billy Eichner And His Response Is Iconic

"One of the proudest moments of my career."

Listen, I love Billy Eichner, and I love Carrie Underwood a LOT, so this drama is at the intersection of my stan-hood.

Anyway, let me tell you what happened. Last week, Carrie Underwood drew backlash after she liked this anti-mask tweet:

Matt Walsh tweeted about his anti-mask mandate speech before the Nashville School Board

People called out Carrie, who's notoriously been silent when it comes to politics, for seemingly being against mask mandates.

Imagine going out of your way to be apolitical, and then choosing to raise your voice after all these years in support of a true conservative firebrand who believes protecting kids from a virus is child abuse.

Carrie Underwood is an anti-masker. She's canceled in my book. Who else's?

The backlash even became a meme.

Maybe next time she’ll think before she tweets

Like, everyone was tweeting about Carrie...

...and one of those people was none other than Billy Eichner, who shared this screenshot that says, "Carrie Underwood blocked you." He captioned it, "ICONIC."

He also explained that his was pre-mask-backlash blockage, writing, "I didn't even tweet about her anti-mask views yesterday. She had already blocked me!"

And for the record, I didn’t even tweet about her anti-mask views yesterday. She had ALREADY blocked me! I’m now taking a little Twitter break because honestly this is one of the proudest moments of my career and it will be hard to top. Love you all. ❤️

He joked that being blocked by Carrie was one of the proudest moments of his career.

I'll conclude with this tweet, which asks the million-dollar question: WHHHHHY????

@billyeichner "For a Dollar, why did Carrie Underwood block me ?"

Carrie has not responded to Billy or the anti-mask debacle, but we'll be sure to update you with any new information.
