Blake Shelton is a douchebag!

Blake Shelton

I haven’t really taken the time to watch The Voice, mostly because I didn’t really care about American Idol, and I sure as hell won’t care about an Idol rip-off. Anyway, I really won’t be watching it now that it turns out judge Blake Shelton might be a homophobic asshole. Also, he completely ruined a perfectly good Shania Twain song. You bastard!

Re-writing my fav Shania Twain song.. Any man that tries Touching my behind He’s gonna be a beaten, bleedin’, heaving kind of guy…

Shelton, hearing comments about his perceived homophobia, later tweeted:

“Ba! Ha! Reading all my anti-gay hate tweets…. Ha! Ha! If people only knew even a little about me, my family and friends. Dumb asses…”

“@becchez: Please make it right! I want 2 like u again.” Ha! Ok try this. Its meant to be from a girls point of view.. Thus, “Shania Twain”

UPDATE: Gay-rights advocacy group GLAAD has called on Shelton to apologize for the initial tweet; the organization sent the singer a tweet, saying, “No, @BlakeShelton – violent, anti-gay statements are not what a woman wants. Apologize now. #LGBT #gay #thevoice @NBCTheVoice”

UPDATE II: Shelton has now formally apologized over Twitter, sending out a series of messages about the incident …

Hey y’all allow me to seriously apologize for the misunderstanding with the whole re-write on the Shania song last night…

It honestly wasn’t even meant that way… I now know that their are people out there waiting to jump at everything I say on here or anywhere

But when it comes to gay/lesbian rights or just feelings… I love everybody. So go look for a real villain and leave me out of it!!!

@glaad hey I want my fans and @nbcthevoice fans to know that anti-gay and lesbian violence is unacceptable!!!!! Help me!!!! And DM me…


No, that’s fucking stupid. You wrote a Shania Twain song from your perspective and now everyone hates you for it. You don’t get to pass the buck onto Shania. Seriously, if Shania got her ass grabbed, she would handle it with class and sophistication instead of acting like some knuckle-dragging dumbass.
