Blake Shelton is trying to dig his way out of trouble this morning.
He’s apologizing to America for some inappropriate tweets he made as far back as 2009. The alleged racist and homophobic tweets resurfaced this past weekend landing the country crooner in hot water.
Here are a couple of those tweets, “Wish the D –Head in the next room would either shut up or learn some English so I would at least know what he’s planning to bomb!!” And this one from 2009, “If you haven’t noticed Richard Simmons is gay, you haven’t noticed Katie Perry’s boobs.”
Somehow these tweets were found on line all these years later and it has put Shelton in a difficult position, so this morning he’s issued a statement apologizing.
“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 who 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.”
