Carrie Underwood Responds to Her SOUND OF MUSIC Critics: 'Mean People Need Jesus'
"Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus," the singer wrote. "They will be in my prayers tonight... 1 Peter 2:1-25."
The Bible verse Underwood is referring to tells people to "rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind."
This isn't Underwood's first run-in with the "mean" crowd. Before the broadcast on NBC, Underwood told Entertainment Weekly that social media had not been kind to her leading up to the live filming. "I get hate Tweets and stuff like, 'You're not Julie Andrews!' I know I'm not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was ... I know my place," she said.
