Blake Shelton apologizes for Turtle-Killing Tweet
Country superstar and The Voice coach, Blake Shelton, has apologized for a tweet that went awry.
“Does anyone know if the Eastern Box turtle is protected in Oklahoma? If so I didn’t just swerve to the shoulder of the road to smash one,” Shelton tweeted. Blake, known on Twitter for his interesting sense of humor, offended some of his followers when the turtle tweet went out. Blake then went on to get into a tweet battle responding, “Hey @turtlefeed.. I solely have raised over a million dollars in animal rescue/conservation alone… How much have you raised? Oh. Ok. Next!”
Earlier today, Blake apologized for the tweet hoping to put it behind him. “One more tweet about this stuff and I’m done. No doubt I made a bad joke and for that I apologize… Also one more thing..,” Shelton wrote today. “As a spokesperson for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife I thought yall should know the Eastern Box turtle doesn’t exist in Oklahoma!!!”
