Blake Shelton has a lot going for him these days, what with his new album If I’m Honest topping the country charts and his romance with Gwen Stefani going so well. But if there’s one thing that gives Blake something to be upset about, it’s the online troll that occasionally pops up on the internet.
Shelton is known for being gracious to his followers on Twitter, especially if they show him courtesy and kindness. But if you try to provoke the country crooner, chances are you’re going to be shut down in the most epic manner possible.
On Thursday night, another online troll bit the dust courtesy of Blake Shelton’s series of sarcastic tweets, as previously reported by Entertainment Tonight.
A Twitter user named Lori Baker, who uses the handle @LoriDBaker, expressed her disapproval of Blake by tweeting, “@blakeshelton I ‘used to love you’ not so much anymore. I turn off the radio at work when any of ur songs come on. Can’t stand u anymore.”
Having included the words “used to love you,” the tweet was obviously a jab at Shelton’s relationship with Gwen Stefani.
Blake, who has always been protective of Gwen Stefani, won’t take the insult lying down as he hits back at the online troll with a sarcastic remark.
“Oh no!!!! Now what will I do?!!! Someone who doesn’t know me at all can’t stand me!!! How will I live?!!” tweeted Shelton.
As of this writing, the tweet has gotten 328 retweets and 2,207 “likes,” proving that many of his followers have the country singer’s back.
Probably thrilled that Shelton even gave her the time of day, the online troll shot back, saying that Blake had “changed and not in a good way.”
To which Blake replied, “I’m starting to realize that maybe you’re a little slow..? I’ll help you. If you don’t like me then why follow me?”
Blake wasn’t done with her, however.
He directed another tweet at the troll, saying, “Here’s the part where she’s blankly staring at her can of Pringles trying to figure it out herself.”
Lori wasn’t done either, as she pointed with an incomprehensible tweet that she’s not slow as Blake has claimed.
“that damn show
@NBCTheVoice I love it. I am not slow. God love u for saying that tho. Shows who u be,” tweeted the online troll.
“No… I’m still pretty sure you are,” wrote Shelton.
Shelton had already blocked the online troll at this point as he wrapped up the exchange with this tweet.
“Ok kids I’m going to bed.. I have a long day of serious big time important s**t to do tomorrow. I love y’all.”
And just in case there are still online haters lurking around somewhere, Blake made sure to leave a friendly reminder.
You tell ’em, Blake.
As mentioned, Blake Shelton has a lot to be happy about these days. Having wrapped up his 10th season as a coach on NBC’s The Voice, Blake just sold 153,000 copies of his new album in its first week, according to Nielsen Music.
“At almost 40 years old and after 15 years in this business, who would have ever thought that I would have the biggest week of my career now?” Shelton told Billboard. “After hearing the news that I have the No. 1 album and No. 1 [radio] song, I am beside myself, my friends. Thank you for this incredible journey.”
Better yet, his romance with Gwen Stefani continues to be on the up and up. In fact, Blake and Gwen are “looking for a vacation home outside of LA,” as previously reported by Life & Style.
