A recent article published by The Dunning-Kruger Times claimed that country music singer Jason Aldean is suing talk show host Whoopi Goldberg and The View for defamation.
The article alleged that Aldean filed a $40 million lawsuit after Goldberg and other hosts on the show called him a “racist” for his music video for the song “Try This In a Small Town.”
However, the article is false. The Dunning-Kruger Times is a satirical website that publishes fictional content. The article in question was clearly labeled as satire, but some people may have mistakenly believed it to be real.
There is no evidence that Aldean is actually suing Goldberg or The View. In fact, the two parties have not commented on the article at all.
The controversy surrounding Aldean’s “Try This In a Small Town” music video began when it was released in June 2022. The video features a scene of a Black Lives Matter protest, which some viewers interpreted as being critical of the movement. Aldean has since defended the video, saying that it is not about race.
The article published by The Dunning-Kruger Times is a reminder to be careful about the information you read online. Not everything you see is true, and it is important to do your research before believing anything you read.
