Garth Brooks Attacked Online After Wearing ‘Sanders’ Shirt Country music singer Garth Brooks recently came under fire after people mistook his football jersey as a political endorsement.
In a photo posted to social media on Feb.

Many people thought it was in reference to presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

Brooks even confirmed it during his Detroit, Michigan, show, telling his audience that he thought Barry Sanders was the "greatest player in NFL history."
