- The Voice coach Blake Shelton had an awkward interaction with a fan on social media.
- He apologized after realizing he was wrong—and took the opportunity to share his love for Gwen Stefani.
After winning six seasons of The Voice, Blake Shelton could argue that he's the best coach in the show's history. (Sorry, Adam Levine.) But there's one thing even Blake will admit he isn't always so good at: social media.
The country singer recently engaged with some fans on Twitter who were discussing his latest single, "God's Country." It seems like he meant well with his responses—but the entire thing quickly became confusing and awkward. Here's a breakdown of what happened.
It all started when one person wrote that she'd "been loving" Blake's hit song, but posed a question about the music video: "Why no American flag in the video?! America IS God's Country!"
Then, Twitter user Cheryl responded and argued that "the whole world belongs to God"— not just America.
This is when Blake jumped in, and things got a little uncomfortable as he tried to respond to Cheryl.
"WOW!!! A stunning revelation... Do you realize that America is a part of the world..?!" he wrote. "And if this is God’s world then....? Bam!!! Congratulations!!! We’re back at square one guuuurl!!!"
Blake's logic might make sense, but it was a little hard to understand his point between all of those exclamation points. (Perhaps Carrie Underwood could give him a lesson in perfecting the art of the clapback.)
After he replied, someone else called him out for misunderstanding Cheryl—who apparently wasn't trying to attack his song, but was actually responding to the initial commenter's question about the music video.
Blake, to his credit, quickly apologized—with even more exclamation points!!!!!!!!!
"Ohhhhh!!!!! Ha!!!! My bad!!!! I’m sorry Cheryl," he wrote. "Y’all see? This is why I suck at social media!!!"
It didn't end there, though. Shortly after apologizing to Cheryl, The Voice coach wrapped things up by sharing an irrelevant (but beautiful!) photo of his longtime girlfriend, Gwen Stefani at the Met Gala.
"Here’s one tweet I can get right..." he captioned the shot. "Holy Moly!!!!"
Moral of the story? Blake is ALL of our dads on social media. 🙈
