The flustering social-media fury over Blake Shelton is starting get rediculously dumb at this point. Seriously.
Mostly, because the man has shown in the past that this kind of attention is exactly what he wants. Blake Shelton has historically made an ass of himself via his Tweets on numerous occasions going so far as to infuriate even the Gay & Lesbian Community which most people know, you just don't mess with. Hell hath no fury as a dragqueeen scorned.
Even when he made tasteless Gay jokes, the backlash only brought more attention to this talentless hick just as this latest incident of "Turtlegate" has. Since the incident where the country singer aparently jokingly tweeted about running over an Eastern Box Turtle, several blogs (like this one) have popped up and even a few blurbs on The Huffington post. A testament to more attention falling on this hack as he really had made no major headlines prior even though he's apparently on a popular TV show as well. Churning this non-event up only adds to his cavalier and bad boy reputation.
The bottom line is, I highly doubt everyone's complaining will cause any irrepairable damage to a person who's in an industry that caters to lawbreaking and leniant penalties. In a Lindsay Lohan world, a non-existent dead turtle will not be avenged as much as we'd like to seek out justice. Shit, even in a world full of regular people who slaughter rattlesnakes inhumanely we can't catch a break for the animals. By no means should you give up fighting for animals, just make sure you pick your battles carefully and then see them through to the bloody and painful end. Aside from firing off his mouth, this asshole didn't do anything illegal so let's all gather our arms and move to a front that really needs it.
You know, like Rattlesnake Roundups....
