Blake Shelton Apologizes for Alleged Offensive Tweets

Blake Shelton has taken to Twitter to issue an apology after some alleged racist and homophobic tweets from 2009 through 2011 surfaced.

“Everyone knows comedy has been a major part of my career and it’s always been out there for anyone to see. That said anyone that knows me also knows I have no tolerance for hate of any kind or form. Can my humor at times be inappropriate? Yes. Hateful? Never. That said I deeply apologize to anyone who may have been offended,” Blake wrote.

One particularly offensive alleged tweet read, “the d–khead in the next room would either shut up or learn some English so I would at least know what he’s planning to bomb!!”

Another tweet apparently read, “Standing in line at a coffee shop in LA talking with the man in front of me. He orders a skinny caramel latte. I couldn’t tell he was gay!!!”

    So-called homophobia doesn’t exist. For example: there are a lot of tribes all over the world that know nothing about sexual orientation or homophobia, but if any member of those tribes is different (gay / lesbian etc.) they will banish or kill him.

    “Who MAY have been offended”

    that’s not an apology!! People ARE offended. He’s not acknowledging what he did was wrong. He’s dismissing people’s emotions by questioning them. He don’t actually believe he offended anyone.

    Apology not accepted!

    he is a rich white guy pretending to be a redneck to sell country music. his bigoted tweets are just a marketing tool to sell his music to a target audience.

    I don’t like this clown but I hate to see him cave into political correctness just to keep everyone happy. Nothing he said was worth getting worked up about.
