Blake Shelton’s Anti-Gay Tweet. Overreaction Much?

For those who don’t know him, Blake Shelton is currently one of the top male country stars. He’s a judge on the new US TV Show “The Voice” and he’s currently engaged to country star Miranda Lambert.

Blake Shelton is also very candid on his twitter timeline. He tweets whatever he pleases and doesn’t care about the repercussions. In other words, he tweeted PETA about his love for hunting.

However, it looks like one of his latest tweets has sparked some controversy, by getting it labeled as an anti-gay tweet and gay rights group asking for an apology. What was the tweet? here it is:

A little research led me to the original Shania Twain lyrics: “Any man of mine better walk the line/better show me a teasin’, squeezin’, pleasin’ kind of time.”

The gay rights group said that this reflected “poor judgement” on Shelton’s part and said his tweet is “unacceptable”.

As a result, Blake tweeted the following apology:

Now honestly, I don’t think there’s anything anti-gay in Blake Shelton’s tweets. You could say they’re anti-harassment tweets. And I think the gay rights group need to get a grip. I’m sure they wouldn’t allow any man to have his “behind” grabbed without him wanting to.

Overall, gay rights groups need to tone it down on the oversensitivity.
