"Started off 2022 with a good ole batch of racism," Guyton captioned her Instagram post.

Country music star Mickey Guyton has shared with her fans that she has encountered yet another instance of racism.

Heading to her Instagram page, the Grammy-nominated artist uploaded a screenshot from a social media troll on Twitter that used hateful language to try and tear her down.

“We don’t want your kind in country music!,” the user wrote. “All you people talk about is your g*d d*** race and skin color! Don’t you effers have Rap, Hip Hop & R&B? Gotta ruin and destroy s**t with your woke bs! Just like y’all did with MTV! Get the F out of our country music!”

Guyton is one of few Black country music artists in mainstream media today.

“Oh you know… just another Saturday for us. That fact that he took time out of his day to write this while having a video game have his profile pic. 😂😂. He’s a joke. Love sis ✊🏽,” Allen wrote.
