Maren Morris is clapping back at criticism she faced when she took her four-year-old son Hayes to a drag show.

The 34-year-old singer appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Friday, where she explained why she took Hayes to the show.

She later clapped back when a fan blasted her on Instagram, stating, 'Enough with taking children to drag shows!'

'Ok this ‘save the children’ plea always seems to distract from what we’re actually talking about,' Maren responded on Instagram.

Morris welcomed Hayes with then-husband Ryan Hurd, who she split with in October 2023, during the early days of the COVID-19 lockdown.

'I had my son the week the world shut down during the pandemic. So every part of his first year was us being stuck inside, which was kind of a gift because like we just got to witness every first moment with our baby, and not miss anything,' she began.
