Look anywhere on social media and it’s nearly wall-to-wall political rants on both sides of the aisle. Whether you support Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, if you share your thoughts publicly, there’s almost always someone ready to respond with their thoughts on your opinion.
This was the case for Blake Shelton recently. In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Blake said “I’m not going to have the political conversation with you about Trump, or about Hillary Clinton, but I will tell you this: Whether you love him or hate him, he says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t always have to be so afraid. A lot of people are pulling for him, no matter how much Hollywood fights it. I see people who don’t like him go and beat up people that do like him. You tell me, who’s crazy here? I probably wish there was another option, but there’s not.”
That’s apparently what prompted actress Debra Messing to tweet Blake’s girlfriend Gwen Stefani saying, “Omg. How? @gwenstefani please talk to your man to not vote for the person who will strip you of your rights.”
Blake, never one to shy away from controversy on Twitter responded with a tweet of his own to clarify his statements, “Hey before this gets going like it always does… I haven’t enforced ANYBODY for president. And I not going to. I don’t do that shit.”
“My comment about “wish there was another option but there’s not” is across the board…period. Now go dig up another story.”
Before the Twitter exchange could become something worse, Messing apologized to Gwen and Blake tweeting, “Ok- I regret commenting. My passions got the better of me. Sorry. @gwenstefani @blakeshelton”
And Blake put it all to rest with his reply, “Thank you sis.. I don’t endorse anybody. For this very reason!!”
