Yes, yes he did. On “The Voice” Tuesday night, a hot mic picked up coach Adam Levine saying, “I hate this country,” as one member of Team Adam advanced and two others were voted off the show.

Apology? That’s not really Levine’s style.

The Obama superfan and Maroon 5 singer tweeted four dictionary definitions:  joke, humorless, lighthearted and misunderstand. Translation: You guys are idjits and I’m not apologizing. Typical douche move.

Classless, kind of like the time Levine insisted it was cool for him to be an anti-Mormon bigot because Mormons are bigots.

Update:

Levine’s now blaming “frustration” for his douchiness.

His official statement, via Entertainment Weekly:

“I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration. Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and  my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results.  I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.”

We await his forthcoming apologies to all the “humorless” people he insulted.

        Unfortunately his fan base has been taught to hate this country too.

        • Crystal O

          I used to be an Adam/Maroon 5 fan. Met all of them in person at a concert and thought he was a really nice guy. However, after this comment…I won’t be supporting their music. So not all of their fans hate this country. AMERICA!

          • rogueco

            I used to like their music, but I learned long ago what Levine really thinks about people with differing political views than his. He has zero tolerance for anyone outside the progressive left, so I now have zero tolerance for his music or any project of his.

          • Brenda Graves

            just as anyone else on the opposite political side. they have zero tolerance for the opposing side. Like everyone else he has a right to his opinions and feelings

          • Guest

            Well said, rogueco! If I were to comment on Levine, I would have said just that! Maroon 5 is very talented, but so are Streisand, Sutherland, Fonda .. well, you get the point. I am always willing to forgive, but I don’t forget. But, I am still not so sure how aligned his bandmates are with his vitriolic rants. Take care Twitchy fans!!

          • alexander

            Do you REALLY think he hates America?

          • skinnydude

            NO….I think its a slow news day and low information people take something out of context and make a big deal out of nothing. If you watch the show it is pretty clear his comment was in jest as he said I hate this country refering to country music and it was a jab at Blake and a compliment as his artist was up against Blake’s country music artists. These people are INSANE to think otherwise. I mean seriously . The President is caught up in 3 serious scandals and this is the OUTRAGE . lol INSANE!

          • Cybernetic59

            If he was referring to country music, then why didn’t he say that? Why is he tweeting definitions? And why did he “apologize”?

          • skinnydude

            You never has mispoke . If all your comments were out there people would hate you too. Its a small piece he is being judged on . I dont know what is in his heart and I certainly would likely oppose his political views but this is much about nothing. Seriously, Americans die in Benghazi and the President literally hide when it was happening. This tv show doesnt mean shit too me I am just amazed and stunned it carries so much weight with low information people.

          • Matt Thrift

            obviously it means a great deal to you cause you’ve said more than anyone else here, low info guy, maroon 5 fan. hey get over to breitbart! quick, somebody just criticized one direction.

            If it was about country music wouldn’t he have said “I hate country”? I understand he was frustrated, but he hates mormons, fox news, the tea party (probably). I don’t see any reason why I should like him being a mormon.

          • Matt Thrift

            you are the low info guy! of course Levine hates America. that’s why he supported Obama. why are you so concerned about your idol and what we think of him anyway? you a beiber fan too? and yes there are many scandals etc. but we can handle more than one issue. sorry you can’t.

And you know what, I am very conservative and very much would like choices and power being given back to the people rather than an overpowering government, but after seeing some of this dribble of these comments and Malkin’s main contention of this story, I need to re-evaluate exactly who I associate with. I am actually very pissed about Michele Malkin’s post and comments, and since I found this article by following her posts because I support her, I need to re-evaluate this too.
            Too much energy is wasted on complaining to people who complain about a comment they took out of context from a reality TV show about music (it wasn’t even anything political, for god’s sake).
            Focus on Obama’s impeachment, people! not this story.

          • skinnydude

            Let the celeb culture deal with this non sense. One of the reason for media decline is the culture actually gives a rats ass about this shit while the country is bankrupt and full of scandal at the top. There is far more evidence Obama hates this country and he has the power to prove it . Which is exactly what is happening.

          • alexander

            Fine, that’s understandable for a musician (especially singers of a band) to be immature and like a child. However, in this context he was not saying “I hate America” the same way with the same meaning as when Rosie Odonell or Michael Moore says, “I Hate America”.

          • grais

            It’s understandable for an adult musician to be immature?!
            wow

            I don’t care much about this punk, whomever he is, but he ought not act like a petulant, self-absorbed toddler. Whatever this silly show is that he’s on, it isn’t America and he ought to realize that, or he’ll face backlash when he makes a comment like that on national tv.
            In the grand scheme, he amounts to ‘not much at all’.

            Exactly! He was just upset on the voting results not the country itself.

            Do you know that this show that he said this on was using call in votes . . . from all around America? Did you know it didnt go well for him? Listen to him in this soundbite again. Look at the context! This is the equivalent of taking Rush Limbaugh (who I fully support) and taking a 3-5 second sound bite that he said and taking it out of context. This is the same thing! Please, listen to it again.

            He probably just hates the pickup driving, country music loving portion of mid-America that appreciates Holly Tucker over his artists. I personally believe Judith is tops above all others, but, she really doesn’t need to stay on the show any longer to be successful. She’s already arrived. But for Adam, he needs to make a public apology…a sincere apology.

          • alexander

            He did apologize. Publicly.

          • grais

            There’s not even a hint of ‘I’m sorry’ in his ‘statement’.

          • alexander

            It cleared it up for me.

          • grais

            Not only did he not apologize publicly, as you claim, he did not apologize at all.

            He did apologize. Publicly.

          • Tom Guckin

          • edith layton

            Again ask yourself have you ever made a stupid comment after something that has frustrated you, If you can truly say you have not, then by all means stop listening to his music, but this guy has put his time and energy into this show and helping these artist go forward, now ask yourself how you would feel, wow two of the best got voted off, was it fair, I dont think so, but thats how it went, I can only put myself in his shoes because I know I was very unhappy, Lets as Americans not blow this up as god knows all else seems to get blown out of proportion lately.

        • Crystal O

          I used to be an Adam/Maroon 5 fan. Met all of them in person at a concert and thought he was a really nice guy. However, after this comment…I won’t be supporting their music. So not all of their fans hate this country. AMERICA!

          • Jen

            I am upset that he would say something along the lines of hating our country. I have the right to be annoyed/irritated that he would say such a thing.

          When people make a mistake or a bad joke they apologize for it when they got caught making a comment they believe in but did not want to make publicly known they either get defensive or call their fans idiots.

        • debdash

          exactly. of I’m not a fan of his, but i’m sure a lot people here thought or said something similar when Obama was elected.

        • disqus_KjRBN2UZnM

          Had he apologized right away and not posted the definitions of joke, lighthearted, humorless… probably would’ve been able to forgive. He had time to think and then posted that crap with no apology.

          At your request. I tried crawling under a rock, but the Obama supporters left me no room. I tried hiding in the dark, but the liberal media occupied all of the room.

      “the benefit of the doubt” WHAT? that he was ‘joking’? He was telling the fans of the show he’s on that they are idiots!
      Some joke.

    • LauraAgain

      Ack! I kind of agree with you, Steve. I think Adam was referring to the people who voted for/against his team. Kind of like when we conservatives talk about “low information voters” … how could so many Americans vote that fool Obama into office? Again?

      • Steve

        In any event…I think he is regretting it.

    He didn’t agree with how people voted. I’m sure he would have chosen differently. But them’s the rules Adam.
    Engage brain before engaging mouth next time.

    • Sharon Feddersen

      I think I agree with you- I assumed he meant country music, since all Blake’s country team made it and only one of his.

    • Shirley Perucchi Romero Harp

      Not that it excuses his words, but he does have ADHD(Attention Deficit Hype- Active Disorder) and is a spokesman for this disorder. Though I believe it not a disorder but a label for personality traits; one trait is spontaneity and blurting out words and not able to hold back. I truly think that he doesn’t literally hate this country, but meant he was upset with America’s votes. I too was not in agreement on how had to leave and can understand why he was upset. We all blurt things out that, if we take thought afterwards, didn’t really mean what we said in the heat of the moment. I’m sure we’ll here an apology and life will go on.

  • Sua Sponte

    “I hate this country”….But I sure loves me the money…And in other news, Adam who?…

    • http://www.facebook.com/NolaMcGhee Nola McGhee

      He comes from a well off family. He’s spoiled and probably was upset and kidding about hate this country. But, not a good thing to say considering all the scandals taking place by someone he probably voted for.

      • Sua Sponte

        Nah, I don’t believe he was “kidding” (many times the term children use when caught), maybe “hate” is a bit much, as most elites in the movie/music industry may not hate it, but I do believe they look down on the U.S. and the citizens with disdain as they believe because they have notoriety they have somehow been graced with above the commoner knowledge, understanding and how things should be mentality…

  • aliwilcox

    With all the things we have to be upset about in D.C. right now, I just can’t work up a head of steam over this knucklehead. He and his petulant sense of humor are not worth notice. Adam, take your tatted body to a country you don’t hate, ‘kay?

      As my Grandma would often say, “Word’s have meaning, use them wisely.” He said it, he can’t take it back, he refuses to apologize. Spoiled rotten narcicist baby.

        • lainer51

        • sick of celebs

          That would require an apology, Hugh….

        • AMSilver

          Forgiveness comes *after* the person who did wrong feels remorse and does their best to make things right. Instead, we have him doubling down on wrong. It’s impossible to forgive someone who isn’t sorry. You can claim forgiveness all you want, but what you’d really be doing is condoning the wrong he did. Not the same thing.

          • Emily B

            Forgiveness can be given regardless of whether the other person is sorry or not. It has to do with you, not them. And forgiveness also does not mean you are condoning the wrongdoing. Not at all. It means to let go of any resentment or anger toward the other person, but NOT excusing the offense. I can forgive someone for robbing me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t call the police and seek justice for the act. It just means I don’t let it take control of my life and my every thought.

          • Proud2bfromtheUSA

            yes we will let go of the resentment but will not forget the sentiment until he apologizes and when this show loses viewers and money because people do not want to support someone with ideals they do not believe in then maybe his employer will make him apologize. Of course a forced apology is not as effective as a heartfelt one but watching an entertainer eat crow is ….well entertaining.

        • Proud2bfromtheUSA

          And we could forgive if he would say he was sorry but sorry seems to be harder to utter than contempt for a country that has allowed him to become rich and famous for having a modicum of talent.

    • James McIlroy

      Look folks, If you can’t understand sarcasm, then you shouldn’t make comments. I’m as conservative as they come, and I did not take offense to Adam’s comment because I took them in context to what was happening to his team last night. America had voted to eliminate two darn good vocalist, and one who should still be there for sure. Go fight the liberals in Washington, and get a grip on life.

    • Jackie Smith

      When you have lost loved ones who were killed or maimed serving this country that he hates, it is going to be deeply offensive.

      • Hugh Beaumont

        OK. Suppose he had said he hates the neocons who sent our men to their deaths in a useless perpetual looting war?

        I’m sure he meant that he hates how the country shows lack of love for talent and always chooses based off of what is popular with their friends instead. I’m also sure he loves the country in which he has so much hope. Actually look him up. And for the record, I have lost friends, relatives and fellow armed service members. I was far from offended.

      When someone trashes the very country that made it possible for them to achieve the level of success they enjoy, that’s just beyond tacky, and low class, and one doesn’t have to ‘look for’ some way to be offended by that, and if you don’t get it, maybe you should go with him to somewhere else of your choosing.

      It was an unfortunate, stupid thing to say when he could have said “I hate this s–t” or “I hate having to cut people from the show”. HE chose the words to use, and as someone who spent a career fighting for his right to say whatever he wants I also fought to be able to take offense to it, and I take offense to it. It’s like saying “I hate God” in that it’s just not funny. I don’t watch the show anyway. Don’t like self absorbed divas.

    • Junie3

      Then he comes out with his condescending definition of words. No, I won’t lighten up. I’m sick of people hating this country. It’s the one’s running it that are ruining it and they voted for this crew.

      …and I normally agree…context is everything, and I think a lot of people are taking this blurt out of context…

      • truthjunkie

        What context? He had three contestants up for elimination. Blake had one left. He said, “I hate this country”, before he even knew (or did he?) who was about to be eliminated. I hate country music? I hate that people didn’t choose my singers? Or, I hate This Country, because he hates his country….Four words. No context…Just hate!

      • Proud2bfromtheUSA

        It really doesn’t matter what context he meant it. When it became known that many, and obviously many people are taking it as offensive, see it in a certain context then he should have apologized to those offended and explained that the words where taken out of context but he is just not big enough to come out and say I am sorry, which in my book makes him small and unimportant and small unimportant people are not really worth admiring in a public forum therefore I will not be watching this show because they obviously have little respect for their audience. These Talent shows are more often viewed by informed conservatives not low information voters and therefore conservatives who actually love this country expect an apology when they are inadvertently offended by the crass and thoughtless words uttered by an entertainer…. who is actually beholden to his fan base for his livelihood. He, instead of apologizing to those he offended, called those people idiots. So instead of inspiration his presence now brings contempt and he is compelled to lash out again because he cant seem to get it right. Somehow that is our fault?

Enough with the fake outrage already. Let him the heck alone, and move on with your lives.

    • mdb1283

      I’ll retract the Kanye West sentiment….. I don’t like his genre, but his music is respectable on a few levels……. I’m more upset that Justin Beiber is the sensation he is….. along with Brittney Spears, Nikki Minaj, among other talentless hacks who build their entire career off their sexuality, and then claim to be true artists who have talent.

        Did Kanye get a grammy for singing George Bush Hates Black People? Wasn’t aware that he made a song out of that.

I’m displeased with the dishonest progressives and low information voters who force the rest of us to suffer for their ignorance. I don’t think Levine really hates this country either, but I think if he doesn’t he shouldn’t say he does. What he’s guilty of is being plain stupid and not being educated enough to be able to express himself accurately. Then he made it worse with some tweets that implied folks are ignorant for taking offense instead of just saying he didn’t express himself well in a moment of frustration and regrets it. This country has nothing to do with having to cut people from the show. What he should have said was “I hate that we have to do this” or “I hate this show”. I like him and Maroon 5, but he’s dulled just enough of the luster that seeing or hearing him will remind me of his stupid comment and excuses for it. I thought he was a smart guy. He just demonstrated that he really is a Maroon.

      It sounds like the show is based on his sh*tty music.

  • Terry

    You mean “lead singer of MORON 5” don’t you?

  • WingedBishop

    Ironic, because only in this country would we be force-fed such horrible trash as maroon 5 over the speakers in grocery stores, subway restaurants, waiting rooms and gyms.

  • BorderLine Guy

    This is stupid. I probably said the same thing when I saw Alan Grayson get re-elected. I don’t really hate this country, it was just an off-handed statement…as was Levine’s.

    • BorderLine Guy

      I he said “I hate this country!” and then rattled off a half dozens reason why then you’d have something. This is nothing, and Twitchy is pushing it. I love Twitchy, but I knew this was going to end up here in the exact fashion that it did.

  • William Robert Guerra

    see, now i get what he said…when it comes to stoopid shows that allow the public to pick who advances, sometimes i hate this country too because it is full of stoopid ppl who don’t know talent from toe jam….i can’t stand levine’s politics but give the guy a break and focus on a-holes like lena dunham trashing vets…

    • jkjan9

      I couldn’t agree more with ya William!!

    • Debbie Oswald Brewster

      Then why wouldn’t he have said, “I hate this show,” rather than “I hate this country?” Our country has absolutely nothing to do with how this tv program is produced and our country certainly didn’t come up with the rules. Hey adam, open mouth, insert foot…ask the dixie chicks how that worked out for them!!!

      • William Robert Guerra

        because it was “the country” that voted for singers that were not on his team and sent singers he was working with home, who he clearly thought were better talent….i heard the comment – there was absolutely NO malice in what he said….

    Just went to youtube and pulled up the 1st song by Maroon 5. Cut it off in the first 30 seconds. Sounded like that Bieber girl taught him how to sing.

    Just sayin….

      ….and you don’t judge a book by it’s cover..just sayin’…
      Look, if you have never seen the show, have no clue who this guy is, why would you diss him? That’s what liberals do…conservatives are supposed to be smarter than that…should I assume you aren’t a conservative?

      • me

        Read Again! I went to youtube to find out who he is. Only took me 30 seconds to determine that I didn’t care for his singing. Others may, I don’t. But I’m not some young teenie bopper either.

        I wasn’t “dissing” the show either. I don’t watch it, I won’t watch it simply because it is on NBC.

  • Nikki Landry

    I think he meant “I hate this country music” since country is ruling the world.

  • moddly

    yeah well…we hate your stupid effing band

  • Ctskip

    He should be replaced

  • maggie b

    I don’t think he “hates this country” I think he hates the choices that were made that eliminated his contestants. Big difference. Poor choice of words to express his feelings

    • Jimmy Smitty Smith

      Yep – he should have said “The voters are idiots.” We all saw in November that a substantial portion of the voters are idiots, so there wouldn’t be as big an issue.

  • Ian Roth

    who is this idiot anyway ? My bet is just another hollywood leftist. boycott the show and its adds. he will get the boot.

    It is not a joke and not lighthearted ADAM LEVINE when Americans are dying for your ungrateful ass to sit here and make millions!! I do not consider that a joke. Leave the country that you hate and I hope your music career is history!!

  • Nuch2

    WOW. It’s bad enough that Adam said it, but even worse that it was said when many our mourning and showing respect for our military for what they continue to give for our freedom over the Memorial Day holiday. Sadly, popularity, money and power often makes one think they are better than anyone else and they quickly lose sight of what is truly important in life. Sorry Adam…YOU are not the most important person nor your opinion. I’m really disappointed. How Un-American.

  • OrionElectra

    Now now, hear the man out. Now that the country has changed for the worse at the behest of low-information liberals, who want marxism and extreme deference to any immigrant who CHOOSES to move here..particularly violently Islamic…who can honestly say they LOVE this country–AS IS? I’m not sure I would defend a nation where the majority were prurient, liberal parasites either.

  • Chris Anderson

    As someone who has watched these types of shows for some time, i must say that his reference may be more to the fact that often viewer choose a favorite, who is not the best singer and vote off the better singer. This has happened on various shows. It is a sad fact that more votes are cast for these singing shows then our presidential elections…. I do not think he hates this country, bad choice of words…yea…but come on…… Now to some of the reaction by people; Give me one person that loves EVERYTHING about America….. Do you love high gas prices? Do you love government healthcare? Do you love Eric Holder? Do you love our wide open borders? How about government paying for cell phones? I could go on but this is a list that I hate about America……. As a Republican, I can not nor will I bash someones right to free speech, while the government is attacking our other rights. There are bigger battles to be waged, then attacking some entertainers comments. I recommend if you have that kind of free time, you volunteer for your local senate campagin and help get our country back!

  • Robb Gray

    This one is taken out of context. I watched and heard it too but I know he @adamlavine was referring to the voting of one of his acts. We (conservatives) complain about people being to PC. We need to be a little less sensitive and take these things in context and yes have a sense of humor.

  • Dawn Mckinney

    I remember the Dixie Chicks bashing our country/president. Look at their career now.

  • docreid

    Well….pack your ass up and get the hell out….

  • OzCop

    Personally, I am giving him a break…something I don’t normally do with folks whom I know are as liberally slanted as Adam…In my opinion it was indeed intended to be a light hearted comment referencing The Voice voters, since he had just lost two of his contestants…He and Blake throw barbs at each other constantly, and this was simply one more…I heard it, and I thought he was saying something regarding country music, since Blake still has his three contestants. I do not view this as a slam against this great country. We are quick to complain when liberals take comments out of context, and I strongly believe some conservatives among us are indeed taking this statement out of context…

    • jkjan9

      Very well said Phil :-)

    • Emily B

      I have to say I agree. I think he was referencing the voters in this instance. However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t actually hate this country. After all, he is a liberal!! Still, it was a stupid thing to say.

    • Djustin Stephens

      I don’t like that obama was re-elected, but post election you didn’t hear me say i hate this country. that is an important difference between liberals and conservatives. somethings ARE sacred and blasphemous to a conservative, liberals rarely find anything in those categories.

  • ObamaFail

    Can’t say I’m surprised. He’s a liberal.

  • Mark Scudder

    You cannot shame the shameless. Doing so is douchey. When are you going to support artists who are conservative? Do you even care that people like Levine exist? Or is this just a jingoistic circle-jerk to get pageviews for Twitchy? Either start supporting a conservative cultural movement, starting with the musicians, visual artists, filmmakers and others out here or STFU about the Hollywood types. No wonder they hate us. We brag about how the free market is awesome, but we don’t sell anything but complaint.

I am so glad you deemed it important to give us permission to do so.

        • Emily B

          Agreed. It was a stupid thing to say. A very poor choice of words, but I doubt it had anything to do with the troops, or Memorial Day, or the government. He was talking about the voters on the show. Period. This outrage is better served on something more important.

          • DixieAngel_76

            Actually, there’s plenty of outrage to go around, and I’m just sick of rich liberals trashing the country that others have died to defend, and YES it does matter to the troops whether he actually said it outloud or not. It’s all part of the attitude. If you’re worried about ‘wasted outrage’ why not save yours for someone who’s worthy of being defended, this bozo isn’t.

    Stop watching “the voice” for a month and see what happens to adam levine. Anyone can do without watching their favorite show to prove a point. Try it you’ll like the result. No one who hates America should have a job like he does and they should never be able to say “I hate this country:” and get by with it. This country and these people make his living. He should appreciate it.

  • allee_alk

    I’m sorry, but I honestly think he was joking. I mean you guys must all think very little of him to assume that he could seriously decide that he hates America because of something as menial as how they voted on a reality tv show. I mean, haven’t you ever joked about hating Americans for not voting for your favorite politician/DWTS contestant/Idol contestant? I know I have, and I never once honestly meant that I hated America. I’m currently studying abroad in Germany, and sometimes joke about hating America when I hear about the bs going on over there.
    It’s called a joke people. We only make ourselves look ridiculous when we get so oversensitive about people making jokes!

    • 96leroy

      The fact that he is narcissistic enough to think ‘the whole country’ cares about his stupid little show is reason enough to hate him. I don’t hate him – I don’t know him and don’t watch. However, his statement is appalling nonetheless and is a pi$$ poor ‘joke’ if that was his intent.

      He should have said “I hate our viewers” if that’s the message he meant to send as a joke. When you ‘hate this country’, you aren’t taking possession of it (this v. my) so you appear to all as having nothing vested into said country. Then the statement of ‘hate’ takes on a new meaning.

      You know who else ‘hates’ this country? Progressives and radical Islamists.

  • Jessica S.

    Not that I’m trying to defend him because I think what he said was stupid however if you watch the show and you know his sense of humor I’m quite sure he was meaning I hate the way this county votes on the show not that he hates the country as a whole. Was it a smart thing to say, no but I think it’s being taken out of context a little bit.

  • Wendy K Wright

    OH he must be a Liberal. Obama can give crotch salutes and refuse to salute the flag… turn us into little Islam and vacation while he destroys our country but we are worried about this little faggot, Adam whats-his-name, and an off-handed remark?… wow.

    He was just frustrated at the people in this country that voted against him (or with him? I don’t watch the show but that seemed confusing.) Saying, “I hate this country” in that context is the same as saying, “I hate these idiots that vote.”…something that all of us can clearly relate to.

  • WJS

    Context! I understood the quip to mean he was disappointed in the fan voting and that of the 3 contestants left on the stage, 2 of them were on his team. He knew at least one of his singers was going home since only one slot remained in the top 6. He could have said, ” I hate this”, but in the moment he said, ” I hate this country”. I suspect he meant nothing more than ” I hate this country ( voters) for the way the voting results turned out.”

      My blood boils at your stupidity. Granted Adam’s statement was dumb, but let’s not rewrite history. We didn’t save very many Jews, and the ones we did save weren’t our priority. Many great series exist which explore WWII, before posting in the future…Maybe some research is in order.
      As for Adam, his statement was one of shock. Considering Judith’s talent, and ethnic background I suspect he felt racism had something to do with the vote. In retrospect I believe he will come to see ‘song choice’ above all else was Judith’s undoing. I love and respect Will-I-Am, but that song really sucked.

      • in_awe

        Of course he said it because he believed that racism ended Judith’s time on the show. But that is the reflexive reaction of liberals anytime a choice doesn’t advance a person of color – it must because of racism. And that offends me even more than his exact words.

    The intent of his comment was obvious, to show disagreement with the viewing audience’s choice. In an environment where the voting community is called “America” or “The Country” his comment isn’t surprising and in that context not all that offensive. He was not talking about what America is or what it stands for. To make a big deal out of this is ridiculous.

      You could not be more wrong. He was talking about America and what it stands for. Thats exactly where his ire was focused. He took direct issue with the opinion of Americans and said he hated them for it. It could not be more clear cut than that. And why because of a silly show that does not mean anything has an audience that disagrees with him.
      He is an uneducated immature child that can’t think before he speaks and he is not sorry in the least for what he said. He is sorry for getting caught and being embarrassed publicly for his stupidity. The only thing more pathetic than him is people making excuses for him. Do you think he would come to your defense as easily? Doubtful.

    Okay, not to throw a lifeline to Levine, since he did not do justice to my girl, Sarah Simmons, by giving her that crappy song this week forcing voters to not advance her, but his remarks are an insult to those that actually vote in these shows, not America as a whole.

    Carson keeps repeating that “America voted” and guess what? They didn’t pick Levine’s preferred contestants. His two non-country girls were at risk of being booted and he knew either one or both were going home. Therefore he “hates America” for not voting for his team.

    It doesn’t make what he said any better. Obviously if he insults those that are voting to keep his singers, then why would anyone vote for his team now or in the future?

    Carson’s annoyance is that regardless of how someone would interpret his words (anti-American sentiment or anti-VOICE viewer participation sentiment) it’ll go over poorly with the show.

  • Harris Abrams

    Hi, Michelle — It seems your Twitchy routine involves finding some dumb statement from a Hollywood pinhead, and broadcasting it all over the interwebs. A couple comments: (1) Celebs being leftist pinheads is a real dog-bites-man story, and (2) you are constantly giving these D-listers a far bigger megaphone than they’d get otherwise. I think whatever good you do in exposing these folks is vastly outweighed by the massive publicity you give them.

    • exsanguine

      Thank you Captain Obvious™ for pointing out exactly what Twitchy is here for.

      • Harris Abrams

        I know what it’s here for.
        What I’m saying is that what it’s here for is counterproductive.

    • in_awe

      You obviously don’t understand the “man bites dog” concept. It means something out of the ordinary. Leftists being pinheads and disparaging the other 50% of the population is anything but out of the ordinary. Their increased openness and in your face approach to it in the past 5-6 years is a bit off-putting don’t you think?

      If Levine honestly feels his comment was misunderstood despite the obviousness of it, then say so and either explain or apologize. Responding with snark sure doesn’t indicate any self-reflection or awareness or remorse.

      • Harris Abrams

        You obviously don’t understand reading comprehension. I didn’t say “man bites dog,” I said “dog bites man” — indicating that leftists being pinheads is, as you say, anything but out of the ordinary.
        That’s just my point: Getting excited about leftists being pinheads is like getting excited about the sun rising. Sure, it’s off-putting — but giving them the Twitchy treatment isn’t going to change their tiny little minds. It just gives them publicity their fourth-tier status wouldn’t generate on its own.
        I quite agree Levine hasn’t indicated any remorse — probably because he doesn’t feel any. To hell with him. Why give him the oxygen?

  • fitzy94

    Calm down folks! He just meant that he hated the way the viewers voted. Two of his best singers got eliminated.

      Echos the Michelle Obama comment before the 2008 election. No, what Levine said reveals the inner thoughts and feelings of a typical liberal. They resent that their obvious superiority over those cretins living in fly-over country isn’t acknowledged and worshiped. Their love for country extends to treating it like an ATM and echo chamber – beyond that they hold no affinity to it – it is just a place to live.

      I can assure you that never in my life have I expressed my frustration by damning my country.

  • Kimberly Schoenrock-Williams

    I think he was pissed off because all the country singers were chosen. Amber, from his group,, whom Blake keeps reminding everyone that she is a country singer, was his only singer saved. I think he had a moment, a brain fart, where he said something that just was a second’s thought in his mind, where it should have stayed in his head, instead of coming out. I’ve actually been on the phone and said something aloud that i was thinking, to the other person. didn’t have anything to do with the conversation. so, i’m just saying, i think it was a thought, mad at the time, and out it came. but! his response sucked. Joke, Misunderstand, Lighthearted, Humorless. It wasn’t a joke. Lighthearted. I don’t think so. Humorless. Yes, that’s obvious. But an apology is certainly warranted. Now, the fact that the Best singer has been eliminated (Judith) and the two weakest staying (Michelle and the Swon Brothers) puts me off the show. I watch every week. But I honestly don’t care who wins this now.

    Pfft. I took more offense when Elton John said America was racist for voting off Jennifer Hudson on Idol. I think he pretty much meant America has a tendency to make these contests a popularity contest ( sound familiar?) or was making more of a statement about America’s taste in pop music. This is a country where Katy Perry has as many Number one singles as MJ.

        You must not have gotten to the part in the Buzzfeed article where the cast of Glee has had more songs on the charts than the Beatles. I remember the first time I saw that article I pretty much had the same thoughts as Levine, loll.

    There are so many angles to this story that are just so odd. Of course, Adam shouldn’t have made this absurd comment. That goes without saying and there are no excuses. An apology would be appreciated. And how must his Team Member Amber feel? He said this mere seconds after she advanced, after all! Sure, Judith & Sarah were ROBBED with a capital ‘R,’ but to blurt out “I hate this country?” I think most of us here hate the way some elections turn out, but does that make me “hate this country”? Others have argued that he was talking about 4 of the final 6 being country music artists….but one of those is on HIS team! It’s just odd. Given his track record of offensive comments, we are well within our bounds to call him out on this comment! If a conservative had ‘slipped up,’ the media wouldn’t go easy on them for sure! “Binders & Big Bird” vs. “Hate this country”? Hmmmmmm.

  • Barry Secrest

    Who in the hell is Adam Levine, anyway?

  • Amanda Johnston

    He doesn’t care, and the people of America have no idea what talent is. These viewers vote on which bobble head doll will look best on their dashboard. Not who has the best singing voice, range and promise as an artist. They need to pick someone who will still be going strong in many years to come. America doesn’t need any more one hit wonders. They are overwhelming the radio stations with their talentless crap and then we never hear from them again. This is the same America that has an “artist” like Nicki Minaj at the top of the charts. Based on what? Her ability to attract mindless followers with bright colors and shiny things? Give me a BREAK!!!

    I don’t totally agree that Adam meant it, the way some took it. I am a Conservative and was not judging Adam on his love for the Obama’s. I also, don’t think I am qualified to interpret his inner feelings. Liberals do have strange minds, but with the competition and him being a sore loser, I don’t think he should be judged so harshly. I think we all have said something offhand that we shouldn’t have. Michelle Obama on the other hand ,needs shipped out ASAP! We know she hates the USA.

  • Brenda Graves

    OMG… he might of said it but it was just because he was unhappy with the voting results. Not a big deal, often a lot of people famous or unfamous say things out loud while thinking without realizing it. I still love Adam and if you don’t realize he was joking you are an idiot!!

    Trust me I am the first to jump all over celebs like the Dixie Chicks and Alec Baldwin when they are being idiots. I am going to give Adam L the benefit of the doubt on this one. Clearly he was upset that the votes or lack thereof kicked his people. At least one of those was a huge mistake. To keep Holly and boot Judith hill is nuts. I think in a moment of emotion he was just expressing his shock that two of his best singers were eliminated. It was not meant as a slur against the US.

    • sowsear1

      Why blame the country?

      • astralweeks

        Because throughout each episode they use terms like, “….America has voted….”, “the country has voted….”, “the country has voted to save.” If they used something else like, “…our panel of voters has voted to save…” he’d have said, “I hate our panel of voters.” As Shakespeare said, “Much ado about nothing.”

  • Chris Alicki

    I can understand why Adam Levine said what he said was only because when Judith Hill got eliminated he was disgusted because who voted her off??? America. And how this girl got voted off because she sounds incredible, I’m in shock for her to get voted off, is beyond me. I see where he’s coming from though. However, I think for him to say that was totally wrong and I say he should apologize and explain himself. I understand people when they get upset that stuff is spoken out the heat of passion, but he has not came to step forward yet with an apology, which makes me really pissed. I’m not a liberal defending him, I’m an independent and came here via Michelle Malkin via facebook page.

  • Screaming Eagle

    isn’t hating the country a prerequisite for employment at NBC?

  • RaginNDN

    Levine needs to be Marooned in another country, preferably in the middle east among fellow America hating scum.

  • carmijok

    You know, you have to look at the context which he said it. He wasn’t denouncing America…he was mad because ‘ America’ (i.e. Voice voters) didn’t advance his singers. Come on…this is much ado about nothing. And believe me, I’m the first person who would fight anyone who said they hated our country on live TV! His was a comment made out of frustration at the voters. The Voice leaves the voting ‘up to America’. ‘America’ is the deciding factor. Give it a rest. He was mad…and in my estimation…rightfully so since he lost two superior singers on his team.

    • astralweeks

  • Devil Dog

    well…his career as a “washed up talentless has been” is over. Now what?

  • AMSilver

    Humorless… I think that describes Adam’s reaction to the voting pretty well.

    Light-hearted… Not how Adam looked during the voting. He looked intense and emotional, and absolutely not carefree, even after his girl made it to the next round.

    Misunderstand… Yeah, I think he pretty much misunderstands everything to do with this country, and also the wisdom of keeping one’s mouth shut.

    Joke… If it was a joke, who was the intended audience? Seems he was mouthing off to himself, telling his true feelings and now that he realizes he’s been caught out on it, he’s trying to rewrite history.

    It really bugs me when liberals think they can just change the definition of words and expect that those of us who think that language actually means something are just going to go along with it.

  • tennisdoc

    I can’t abide his sentiment but I love this country because he has the right to say he hates it.He is just a fool who does not understand that in most countries if he had a job like he has now he would be nothing more than a mouthpiece or puppet.Viva la difference!

    Adam, if you hate this country why then don’t you find a place that will suit your sissy arse. Your music suxs and so do you. It is because of moron liberals like you this country is in tthe state it is in. You spit on the grave of every American service man who gave their life, the cemeterys are filled with Crosses and Star of Davids to prove that fact, There are Americans who are MIA’S / POW’S, and there are many disable American Veterans.

    I am not a liberal. I am a Republican. But I must say it sounds to me like he was being sarcastic and making a joke. Like sometimes if I meet a real a-hole of a person I will say “I hate people”. I don’t really hate people. Its just me being sarcastic. Also when Obama got voted back in I am pretty sure that in my deep despair I was saying “I hate this country”. I didn’t really hate my country. I was hating on the sheep who voted him back in. I was just being sarcastic and yes bitter. Maybe he had a poor choice of words to be joking on TV – but hey – let’s be real here – I don’t think he was truly saying he hates America. He was just being bitter. Who of us haven’t said the wrong thing at the wrong time. People we have bigger fish to fry right right now.

    I will be the FIRST person to say what Adam said was totally out of line. I do not believe he meant it in a disrespectful way as we are taking it. It is on a show where they have teams competeing. There have been many times in my life in the heat of something, I have said something, but thats not the way it was meant. I feel he was just frustrated by the fact that he thought AMERICANS should have voted differently. I will not excuse his actions, but I am a person who will also try to look at the big picture. He is not the first person to make a statement in which he regrets it and he won’t be the last. Let’s try for alittle understanding AMERICA.

  • disqus_yRDBstQn6Z

    I stopped watching The Voice for the same reason that Adam may have said he hates it. The reason? Because stupid people vote for someone based NOT on their talent, but on their appearance, and/or people that think they are being funny will vote for someone that should not be advancing. But, that is what the show is about. Letting the people vote. And since they vote stupidly, I stopped watching the show. Adam, if that was the reason, then I agree. but, it is the way the show works, and if that is how you feel then maybe the show isn’t for you either. :)

But GOOD GOD people, GET A GRIP. It was an off the cuff comment about the way people voted in a singing competition. If you are that simple-minded that you really think he was making a serious political statement, then you seriously need to step back, take a deep breath, and then stab yourself in the face.

    good grief…this is the kind of silly over-reaction that makes us look ridiculous. “this country” votes for which singers to keep in the competition. so when two of the, arguably, best singers (who were on his team) were eliminated he meant that he “hates this country” for voting the way they did…NOT that he hates america. sheesh. put down the torches and pitchforks and give the ‘outrage’ a rest for a minute, folks.

    Not a big fan of the liberal elites, but you have to take it in context. Throughout each show they keep using phrases like, “…and the country has voted,” “…this week the country chooses to save,” etc. He was just angry that the voters voted off one of his singers. Save your outrage for people who truly hate the United States, like Obama, Holder, Reid, Pelosi.

I actually like Adam the best as a coach. Maybe he should have addressed it to Blake directly so everyone would understand better what he was saying.

    OK, get a grip people! Ok, him complaining about how the country didn’t vote for his contenders on The Voice is NOT the same thing as complaining about the political policies and such of the country. If you do not watch the Voice, I can see how this is confusing. He just chose the wrong phrase to show his frustration about the vote. He is down to 1 contender i think on from his team while team Blake has 3. This is not a political rant from him.

  • LInda

    Though I am not that into Adam Levine or Maroon5, I don’t feel he truly meant that he hates this country. He was just frustrated that two of the best singers, which happened to on his team, had been voted off by the people of this country. That is all the comment was about. All of us at one time or another have spouted off words that we wish we could take back when in similar situations, so for heaven sakes, chill.

But from watching the show I dont think it was a hot mic as they leave them on so the coaches can dig at each other . I think it was done more in humor knowing the back and forth of the show . He said I hate this country because Blake has had alot of success with country music and his team member was up their vs country artists. I have heard him compliment country music in a BIG way on the show . Do we throw all those comments out for this one . I don’t think so . This is much to do about nothing.

Most of the things we (I) say (if you want to call it that) here on Twitchy is, The Government has become bloated, corrupt, and complacent, and we NEED TO REIGN IT IN! Our Incomes are OVER-TAXED BY SAID GOVERNMENT, WHICH NEEDS A SEVERE HOUSECLEANING and MAJOR REPAIRS! !And our Once Proud Country is Now a LAUGHINGSTOCK in the Eyes of the World, which is why we need to FIX OUR MORALS AND VALUES!
      We are not (I reiterate) not saying we hate this country or it’s Government, we’re just asking “WHERE IS THE REAL FREEDOM OUR FOREFATHERS HAD, AND PROMISED TO US?!?!?

    Come on guys. It’s pathetic to get up in arms about such a tiny comment. I bet many people here would also turn around and preach about open-mindedness for gays. Little ironic that you’re crucifying a guy for a tiny comment and accepting an entire lifestyle, don’t you think?
    I do not have an opinion on either of these subjects. Both may be right, both may be wrong. I would just like people to have higher thinking than this primitive garbage.

      Via Billboard: “Since signing with Reprise Records in 2002, Adam Levine has sold an estimated 22 million albums worldwide, both as a member of Maroon 5 and as a solo or guest vocalist. Levine has scored #1 hit singles in dozens of countries, including four US pop chart toppers, the most recent of which was 2012’s ‘One More Night’ which was certified at quadruple-platinum by the RIAA in early 2013. Selling more than seven million copies, ‘One More Night’ was the third-largest selling single in the world for 2012.

    Adam, why didn’t you post that you meant to say “I hate this country music”? Your statement=dumb move. You could have talked your way out of this one, So. Cal. guy. Concert ticket sales are going to be waaay down now.

  • Melody Canterberry

    If you’ve ever read or heard any of his previous interviews, you would have known WAY before this that he’s a douchebag. I never have liked him personally, and I don’t listen to his music. Unfortunately, my DH watches The Voice, so I’m subjected to it whether I want to watch it or not. Did he make a completely asinine comment? Absolutely. Did he really mean he hates this country? Um, no, I don’t think he meant it that way. I think he was making an off-the-cuff (albeit stupid) remark out of frustration. Do I believe he meant what he said above by way of “apology?” Yes, though I don’t think it was an apology so much as an explanation. He still needs to apologize. He’s got a HUGE fan base (God knows why, but he does), and as such he does need to watch what he says.

    And before y’all get upset with me, I’m no Obama fan, DEFINITELY not a liberal, and I have no tolerance for progressive idiots … but I do know when to get upset over a comment and when not to. This is not a time to get upset. He a dumba$$, but he didn’t mean what he said literally.

  • Rob Stevely

    Has he come out of the closet yet?

  • Mom

    Come on people! Get a grip! We all say things that we don’t actually mean – he was obviously frustrated. No one – in this country – should be giving him a hard time, unless of course you are so perfect and have never said or done anything wrong. Let he (or she) who has not sinned cast the first stone.

  • JesLHW

    I used to be a huge Maroon 5 fan until I read his insulting tweet about Mormons. I didn’t think I could respect him any less, but then he goes and says that he hates this country because he has a “wah-wah I didn’t get my way” fit, so now, somehow, I respect him even less. He’s definitely impressive with how offensive he manages to be.

  • J.B.

    Amazing the contortions people are doing to explain away or excuse this jerk for what he said. You people are a special kind of stupid.

  • PapaStephenA

    I’m as patriotic as the next person, and wouldn’t know an Adam Levine song if it bit me in the butt, but I watched the show and accept his explanation. He was heavily invested in two people, and two of them did not make the next round, based on the votes of people from “this country”. if you have never said you hated something or someone, and didn’t literally mean it, then you’re lying, otherwise each of us have done the same thing. We can’t jump on everyone who says something that it pulled out of context and blast them. Let’s pay attention to the important things!!!

    • toddm123

      I never heard them either and friends of mine played something by them and left me wondering what the big f’ing deal was. The Beatles or Led Zepplin ever have to worry about being forgotten in the history books due to these overrated pukes.

  • Wade Verdin

    Wow! You people sure are think skinned! Cut the guy some slack. Part of this great Country is freedom of SPEECH!

    • Glen Hull

      And the freedom of speech cuts both ways. Levine is free to spew his bile, and others can joyfully point out what a colossal douche he is.

    • Evil Otto

      Yeah, and we have the freedom to say what we like too. You do understand that, right?

      • toddm123

        No, Wade DOESN’T understand that.

    • toddm123

      Who’s not honoring his freedom of speech? Who’s shutting him down? OHHHHH, that’s right if you’re a whiny, tattooed, untalented liberal, freedom of speech means you can demean your opponents. That’s right. But you don’t dare offer your opinion back the other way. That’s called being mean.

  • ASingleRose

    I’m a little surprised at all this outrage and backlash over a comment Adam said on “The Voice” last night. To those watching (myself included), he said it before he knew he was losing two of his team members, and it was clear when he said it, that he said it because he was nervous about the results and hated that it was up to the viewers and not him, as to who stayed and who went home. I know Adam and I do not see eye to eye as far as political ideology goes, but he was not attacking America last night, he really was just airing his frustration. The fact that he is being harrassed in to keeping these comments alive is kinda sad. We have to be allowed to make frustrating comments now and then without being attacked. There are far too many other things we need to concern ourselves with, like how corrupt our government is in trying to shut us down and stiffle our “free speech”, let us not do the same.

    • toddm123

            You already answered it, he is a freaking moron. But I honestly dont think he really meant that he hates USA, more like he hates the morons who vote on his moronic show.

            Think about how Justin Beiber just won an lifetime achievement award a couple of weeks ago, it was all because of morons who voted. So I can say that I hate some people in my country.

            Gary I have looked at your facebook page and your comments. Do you realize that you are Bill Maher? You are not a left leaning moron like him, but you are so far to the right that you think that the Republicans can do no wrong.

            Well hell son, we are probably on the same page. I just attacked you because you said I suck hahaha. I am a conservative who is sick as hell as how our party has been hijacked.

            But I just dont like how everyone is so easily offended. You say one wrong thing and all hell breaks loose. I am not defending Adam Levine, I am just saying that we do not have to lynch him for some random comment.

          • gary4205

            Sorry we got off on the wrong foot! That said, when liberals spew their anti-American rhetoric, they need to be hammered.

            This isn’t the first time Levine has attacked America. He’s a well known lefty!

            I used to be a lot more tolerant of these cats, but I have seen the hate they spew up close and personal. I have nothing but contempt for liberals and liberalism. It is the greatest evil mankind has ever faced.

          • Daniel Cartwright

            I am happy that you responded to me, I hate people who just post crap and then run away. Maybe I am wrong and Levine is just a moron. Would not be surprised.

            It seems we are on the same page. I hate a lot of liberal thought, but at the same time I feel like the Republicans are just doing the same thing. It really seems like one party now, but each side plays its part.

            I guess my problem is I am old enough to remember when there was an actual difference between the two parties. Now it just seems like a football game where you either like the home team or the away team.

          • gary4205

            I’m right there with ya! I cast my first presidential vote for Ronald Reagan, and have always been proud of that!

            I’m a Reagan-Palin Conservative. I guess you can throw Ted Cruz in there as well. Being a Texan, he makes me proud! We need 534 more just like him in Congress!

            We MUST get back to the Constitution and the rule of law. Liberalism is the enemy of both.

            The problem with the GOP is no one in leadership has any balls. Worse, they attack anyone who does!

            Both parties are corrupt, and frankly the GOP is happy being in the minority, as long as they get theirs.

            If it weren’t for the priceless antiques and architecture I’d say nuke that swamp on the Potomac and start over!

    First of all….. a quick tour through wikipedia will reveal that this reprobate was born and raised in California (last i checked that was still a part of “this country”)….. that said, i remember as a 7th grader in History class we were shown a short subject called “The Man Without a Country”….. I would recommend that Adam be provided with a similar fate as the lead character in this presentation….. Give him a berth on an American merchant vessel, and let him spend the rest of his life at sea!

    What infuriates me is the fact that I hear people say “I hate this country” all of the time but no one complains then. Look at what happens when there is a suicide from bullying or a mass murder. People are constantly saying it at times like that, at times when they are FRUSTRATED. However, because Adam Levine is a public icon people feel the necessity to criticize everything he does. Any other, everyday person and no one would give it a second thought. I feel people are taking this much too seriously simply because of Levine’s fame. The same thing occurred with Jennifer Lawrence when she made a joke about PETA. If he was actually a jerk who hated this country he wouldn’t hold up signs for the paparazzi saying to donate to red cross.

    As a lifelong conservative I believe we as a group need to choose our battles carefully. Love Adam Levine and Maroon 5, yet DESPISE his politics. Common sense should tell anyone who saw him make the statement or watched it in replay that it was NOT political in nature nor anti-American. America voted on the contestants and voted 2 of his 3 off. It was a surprising twist as they were two of the strongest in the competition yet obviously now not two of the favorite. It’s a competition, he is competitive and it was off the cuff and I am sure now regrettable. I firmly believe he was referring to the voting American public who let his team dissolve. He hated the way AMERICA voted, kind of like I did the night Obama won for a second term. Like Adam, I was confused and at that moment angry with the way America voted. I think if we nitpick over silly stuff like this, it gets harder for us as conservatives to gain credibility among those we are trying to bring over from the dark-side when we are outraged at things that are truly worth being outraged about. People need to get a grip, even dear Twitchy which I love and read daily.

    • John Galt

      That would be great if it was one isolated incident, but Levine uses his success and money from people who support him to spout his liberal bile, and I’m not going to contribute to his influence on LIV’s.

    He said something stupid out of frustration….it’s called being human. Very slow News day!

    Well I’m certainly glad there was no hot microphone around me last election day when it was clear the American people had given Obama another four years and I expressed sentiments similar to those Levine uttered. Of course, if I had been recorded saying such a thing, I’d hope people would give me understanding for being an imperfect human. I now give that understanding to Mr. Levine. As a coach on “The Voice” he has helped people fulfill their dreams, and there isn’t much that is more American than that.

      Well, except having a website started by a professional troll and staffed by kooks and lunatics try to gin up phony outrage. But, otherwise, dead on.

      • John Galt

        Yea, Huffpo and the Kos are certainly fulfilling the American dream with that.

          Ah, moral equivalence. Between victimhood and butthurt, the favorite defense of conservatives acting stupidly.

          • John Galt

            Your comment would carry weight if your ideology had any morals to begin with.

          • $24647834

            How cute that a nihilist, taking the name of a main character who disdains charity and basically hates other people, has the stones to lecture people about morality

          • John Galt

            Charity from the barrel of a gun is no charity at all. You can take your charity and stuff it.

            I think Jesus said that

          • John Galt

            Laughable that you presume to know anything about Jesus.

          • John Galt

            And let me clarify:
            You can take YOUR idea of charity (which is really just theft) and stuff it.

            After a youth spent in an evangelical church, I remember how he said “F_ck the poor”

            You want to return to a feudal system of the very rich and the very poor, you can try to sell that to the American people

          • John Galt

            I don’t need to. Capitalism sells itself when people prosper through hard work. You want to sell socialism to the American people, make sure you tell the truth of it (if that’s possible for a lib) and let them know how much of a failure it has been in every country it has been implemented.

          • $24647834

            You never heard of Social Security or Medicare? We already have socialism in this country, just not enough, given our lack of infrastructure, low taxes, and staggering income inequality. Good luck, robber baron, we started ignoring your kind in the 1890’s

    Adam Levine’s comment pissed me off; then I thought about it. He hates the country responsible for Maroon 5 and bad reality TV. Looking at it that way, I kinda see his point

  • WoundedCrow9

    I hear kim ching lun, the nuker, is looking for a playmate

  • carlos perez

    what Adam mean was he was upset with the country’s decision

    Get over it people… Everyone says things that they don’t mean once in awhile. Its like when you were a kid saying to your mother, I hate you or I’ll never drink again… Its only simple words that mean NOTHING. I HATE this country since all you stupid obama supporters voted him in twice… Idiots!

  • John Galt

    He hates the country, but he sure seems to love the success it gave him, and allowed him such a large audience to hear what he really thinks of it.

  • Randi Starr

    Sucks when you are caught speaking your true feelings, without a beer in your hand, isn’t it dumbass.

  • Hugh Beaumont

    OK, OK, I took enough heat by giving him the benefit of the doubt. I recant. He’s a putz. He had his chance to expound and he blew it.

  • VillageChck

    He’s a whiney little twat

  • Maria Miriam Contessa

    He said he hates this country as in sarcasm over country music because he was hoping Judith and Sarah continued on.This is being blown way out of context honestly! And even,if he did mean it the other way around ie hating America…how many stupid,off base comments,or remarks has any other person said when no one was looking? Plus,everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion.His comment was heard on a mic,perhaps a mic should be placed inside every one of our homes and let’s see who’s really righteous, or not.

  • skinnydude

    I think this whole episode was likely cause by a anti islamic youtube video that no one has ever seen. (sarcasm alert ). Dont sweat the small stuff when the country is burning. His comment was merely a misplaced attempt at humor. Everyone just look in the mirror and say with a straight face you never said anything that simply was percieved far worse than intended. His apology was to merely state it didnt come out as intended so it was misinterpeted and he is sorry.This is much a do about nothing. I accept his apology. This was not a calculated act. it was a misinterpeted slip of the tongue. WAKE UP AMERICA! Seriously, this celeb culture is high on drama but short on real substance or any relevance to common sense. If this is a huge priority in your life , you need to re think who you are. I get pissed when I am trying to get real news and this shit is what the BUZZ is all about . Complete Non Sense.!

  • disqus_9Hn7C9DHbS

    I get exactly where Adam was coming from. The mentors no longer have control over their singers’ fate. He was frustrated with the way “America” the voted. We all know at this point it is a popularity contest and not necessarily a vote based on talent. I quit watching American Idol for this reason. To take him literally is ridiculous.

  • Levin

    The loyalty deficit goes beyond patriotism. Has anyone noticed that his utterance came immediately after one of his own team got saved? Basically he was telegraphing his displeasure that Amber Carrington got picked over Sarah and Judith. Nothing like covering the back of one of your own team.

    I respect Adam because he expresses his opinions and it was a god damn joke!! RELAX people! Is this really that important?! Shouldn’t we all be focusing on something more important?

  • Corey Gilstrap

    I have said crap in frustration before and it was obviously a combination of 1/2 emotional response aimed at the voters who booted his folks off the show and the other 1/2 that we have a slow day in the newsrooms of america….sheesh. He gets his opinion of our voting on a TV show. Move on to a different topic.

  • Denise Sanchez

    Adam! Just should have said sorry. Reading your tweets shows me how senseless you are.

    How does being frustrated with the outcome of a competition make some say “I hate this country”?

  • Mark Stone

    sorry guys, but I’m siding with Adam on this one… he was upset that he lost two eliminations due to a country-wide vote. Nothing more than that. (he could have done without the tweet-initions). He got caught up in the moment that hit him, but some people are looking WAY too hard to find some reason to blast him for being an admitted-Obama supporter. Hell, hit him for that all you want, but let’s not turn into those “brain dead” people liberals who just jump on any comment without context.

    • thomas moore

      I agree. I’m conservative, I detest progressive politics. But the people on this forum and, I hate to say it, but Twitchy itself, sometimes is looking for things to be outraged by.

  • VillageChck

    Who cares what this whiny twat has to whine about

  • Seahawkman

    Ain’t no big surprise. So called Hollywood celebrities don’t appreciate what they have. Maybe they should just leave the country. Yah. I like that. Adios!
