We like @blakeshelton on 'The Voice'. Too bad he seems to want gays to fear 'The Fist' (*UPDATED with apology)
Remember that gay, Mormon contestant from NBC's "The Voice"? Yea, well -- here's just hoping said gay singer doesn't accidentally brush up against the tush of the coach/mentor who ultimately chose him, country singer Blake Shelton:
Do you get it or do you need us to explain the subtle nuance of this highbrow "comedy"? It's a layered one.
But once again, looking beyond what the simplistic "comedy" suggests for its potential victims, we have to ask: Why isn't the butt-pat recipient's reaction, "Thank you, I'm flattered -- but not interested, dude"? Don't these tough guys realize these reactions say much more about them than it does about any potential crush?
*Okay, so Shelton has offered a series of responses that range from insincere (he refers to those who questioned him as "dumb asses") to insulting (he says his critics are "immune to sarcasm") to extremely convenient (says his tweet was meant "from the girl's point of view") to self-pitying ("I now know that their [sic] are people out there waiting to jump at everything I say on here or anywhere") But he did "seriously apologize" for the whole thing. So for our interests, that's the closing point here. Hopefully he has learned that words matter.
**UPDATE2: Even better:
