Country music star and The Voice judge Blake Shelton, who suggested that Jake Gyllenhaal is gay over the weekend, went a step further on Wednesday and advocated homophobic violence in a tweet that parodied a Shania Twain song.
La Figa repots on Shelton, who said he was “Re-writing my fav Shania Twain song” when he tweeted,
“Any man that tries
Touching my behind
He’s gonna be a beaten, bleedin’, heaving kind of guy…”Over the weekend, Shelton, a popular judge on the NBC singing program, cracked an antigay joke when he hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards with Reba McEntire. He suggested that Jake Gyllenhaal had left Taylor Swift because the actor “was in Brokeback Mountain,” which prompted laughter from the audience in Las Vegas.
The homophobic tweet already has prompted an outcry, leading Shelton to call his critics "dumb asses" on Twitter, where he also suggested their concerns represent "antigay hate tweets." GLAAD called on the singer to apologize Thursday morning and said it had contacted producers at The Voice, known for being a gay-friendly show.
Are you fucking kidding me? Is this dickhead really that fucking stupid? Doesnt he realize that EVERYONE follows Twitter and will report the littlest item?? And to call a world famous actor gay and think that there wont be backlash??
What a douche! I will NEVER watch this show again until he is gone!
It's 2011 people! Hate speak will not stand in our society!!
BAN "THE VOICE"!!!!
