Blake Sheldon Totally Doesn’t Hate The Gays

by | 6th, May 2011

COUNTRY superstar, Blake Sheldon, has been accused of being a stinkin’ homophobe. Of course, what with him being a country and western singer, roughly 99.7% won’t be at all surprised at the notion of a God fearing dust bowl balladeer not being too fond of the gays.

However, Blake Sheldon is a modern, groovy kinda Stetson wearer and everyone has got him all wrong.

See, Sheldon is still taking his spurred boots from his mouth after he reworked some of Shania Twain’s lyrics on twitter, leaving “The Voice” coach apologising so frequently that he’s begun to look insincere.

Blake tweeted on Tuesday:

“Any man that tries touching my behind, he’s gonna be a beaten, bleedin,’ heaving kind of guy.”

It didn’t take long for people to start hurling abuse at him, including gaylib group GLAAD, who replied with:

“No, @BlakeShelton — violent, anti-gay statements are not what a woman wants. Apologize now. #LGBT #gay #thevoice @NBCTheVoice.”

Blake, with his ass handed to him on a plate, quickly retorted:

“It honestly wasn’t even meant that way. I now know that their (sic) 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!!!”

Hmm. Not the explanation that many had hoped for. So he further added:

“@glaad hey I want my fans and @nbcthevoice fans to know that anti-gay and lesbian violence is unacceptable!!!!!”

Overuse of exclamation marks are completely acceptable however!!!!!!!!!!!

Then, everyone involved has a great big group hug and forgot all about that silly homophobic statement… which wasn’t homophobic… but looked that way… and… oh who cares?
