It was the Twitter deactivation heard ‘round the world.

Jessie James Decker (@JessieJDecker) made headlines when she defended husband and New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker against haters on Twitter and then deleted her account minutes later.

The country singer now gives her exclusive account of what happened in a new interview with CMT Radio’s Cody Alan (@cmtcody).

“I deactivated my Twitter because I was having fans from other teams just calling me names I’ve never even said in my life,” the new co-host of CMT’s “Redneck Island 4” says. “They do not get the privilege to talk to me that way.”

It all began when Eric asked fans to tweet what they loved about the Jets for a chance to win signed memorabilia.

What was intended to ignite Jets pride turned into a forum for the team’s fans to voice frustration over the Jets’ disappointing 1-7 season. The negative responses prompted Jessie to add her two cents and defend her hubby.

“It turned into people assuming I was bashing Jets fans, which never came out of my [mouth,]” she says. “I’m with you – we are fans together. I’m pissed off, too. I’m mad that we’re not winning games. But fans from other teams, don’t come down on us. Like, stay in your own backyard! That’s what I was so upset about.”

As of Tuesday (Nov. 18), the singer’s Twitter account had been reactivated.

Watch Jessie co-host “Redneck Island 4” as a part of CMT’s outrageous Thursday nights, beginning with a 90-minute extended premiere on Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
