Past Tweets Get Blake Shelton in Hot Water…New Tweet Hopes to Cool It Off

Blake Shelton was forced to do some damage control today after some of his past Tweets—many considered to be homophobic and racist—were unearthed over the last few days.

Here are a few of the Tweets in question:

2008: “Grown men who wear Chuck Taylor’s may as well write on their foreheads ‘Cucumbers turn me on!!!'”

2011: “Standing in line at a coffee shop in LA talking with the man in front of me. He orders a skinny caramel latte. I couldn’t tell he was gay!!!”

2011: “Wish the d**khead in the next room would either shut up or learn some English so I would at least know what he’s planning to bomb.”

Today (Aug. 17), Blake released an apology on Twitter: “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 that knows me also knows I have no tolerance for hate of any kind or form. Can my humor at times be inappropriate and immature? Yes. Hateful? Never. That said I deeply apologize to anybody who may have been offended.”
