FACT CHECK: No, Garth Brooks Did Not Say He Is Permanently Leaving The U.S.

A post shared on Facebook claims country music star Garth Brooks announced that he is permanently leaving the U.S. 

Verdict: False

There is no evidence for this claim. It was originally posted by a satirical website.

Fact Check: 

Brooks recently announced that he would be selling Bud Light at his honky-tonk, Friends in Low Places, to which he met criticism, according to Fox News. Bud Light faced a massive boycott after doing an ad campaign with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, Daily Mail reported.

A Facebook post claims Brooks announced that he wants to move out of the U.S. permanently. The post shows an image of Brooks alongside an image of the Statue of Liberty.

“Garth Brooks Announces Plans to Permanently Leave The U.S, ‘No Respect For Me Here,’” the post reads. (RELATED: No, Garth Brooks Was Not Kicked Out Of A Toby Keith Tribute)

A disclaimer on the site reads, “Please note that the article under the category ‘SATIRE’ are satirical in nature and are not meant to be taken seriously.
