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!!!”
