Blake Shelton went from living the American dream to a nightmare in just 24 hours after old racist and homophobic tweets of his surfaced online.
Over the weekend, social media trolls dug up offensive tweets from Shelton posted between 2009 and 2011 and popular opinion was that they were hateful and racially insensitive. But the country star is blaming his Twitter fingers on his terrible taste in humor. He took to the social network to apologize, tweeting:
Blake isn’t the only popular celeb who’s come under fire this week for his racially-themed tweets, Ellen DeGeneres apologized on Tuesday for posting a meme of herself riding Usain Bolt’s back, saying that’s how she planned to run errands from now on.
Moral of the story: Twitter tells all.
