Blake Shelton Jokes About Turtle Murder, Tells Fan to GET A LIFE!

by at . Comments

Blake Shelton incited a major Twitter war over the weekend and was eventually forced to apologize for a tasteless joke and a string of insults... all because of a fake turtle's death.

It all started on July 27 when Shelton wrote: 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...

NPR blogger Barbara J. King quickly responded in shock, asking the country music superstar: That turtle's life meant something- was your tweet a bad joke? Why would you be so cruel to a living being?”

From there, it was on!

Shelton especially got into it with a user named @turtlefeed, going off on her/him in reply to that follower questioning Shelton's apathy for animals:

Hey @turtlefeed. Before u make an even bigger dipshit of urself you should research on how much money I have raised to feed homeless animals... Hey @turtlefeed.. I solely have raised over a million dollars in animal rescue/conservation alone... How much have you raised? Oh. Ok. Next!

The artist eventually revealed that he was joking all along, but not before getting awfully personal in his insults:

The best part of all of this is that the dumb asses didn't even look to see that I'm not even in Oklahoma today!! I'm in North Dakota!! Do they even have turtles in North Dakota?!!! God almighty!

Finally, Shelton received so much flak for his joke and his responses that he tried to issue an apology to put an end to the back and forth:

Ok.. Now that "Turtle-Gate" is over I want to apologize for my ignorant joke.. I never ran over a turtle. It wasn't even possible.
