Now he’s done it! Blake Shelton may have thought his Tweet about driving over a turtle was funny, but he’s angered the Left, including Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted her outrage.
After all of the Twitter throw downs Shelton has fought — on everything from his drinking to his songs to comments about his wife Miranda Lambert — he seems to be a bit more careful about what he tweets these days. But not careful enough, apparently, considering the firestorm he ignited two days ago when he tweeted this:
Although the original tweet caused fans and animal rights activists to condemn him, Blake didn’t seem to want to make peace until Ellen weighed in. Shortly after she criticized him, Shelton again took to Twitter to note that the outrage over the death of the slow-moving turtle could perhaps be directed toward more deserving recipients — namely people.
Seems the man has a point.
