Adam Levine Defends "I Hate This Country" Remark as a Joke

by at . Comments

SPOILER ALERT:

Last night on The Voice results show, favorites Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were voted off, leaving many viewers in shock.

But Adam Levine has now given fans a different reason for surprise: a hot microphone caught him muttering "I hate this country" not long after after Amber Carrington was "saved by America," as Carson Daly announced.

Watch and listen now:

It's unclear what exactly Levine meant, considering he made the remark after his own team member was deemed safe.

But the singer took to Twitter after the controversy went viral and defended the quip as a mere joke, listing several dictionary entries in an attempt to clarify.

To wit:

joke-noun1.something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or prankish act.

hu·mor·less (hymr-ls) adj. 1. Lacking a sense of humor. 2. Said or done without humor.

He also went on to define "lighthearted" and "misunderstand."

Might the Maroon 5 frontman have been referring to the fact that his country singer was saved, while his R&B and rock crooners remained on stage?

Who knows. But we're gonna give Levine the benefit of the patriotic doubt on this one.

Everyone, please stop obsessing. Adam Levine was simply referencing the fact that America chose not to save our dear, Judith Hill. Judith whom everyone expected to make it to the finals. Judith who was going to go on tour with Michael Jackson. And now, when he says he "hates" this country because it's their fault Judith is not longer on the show, he should be shunned? He was frustrated. Okay? I said the exact same thing after the show. I said "I hate this country." Not because I dislike the fact that I have freedom. Not because America doesn't protect me. It was because I was angry, and when people are angry, they say things they'll regret. I assure you, Adam Levine does regret what he said. He admitted it himself.
