Adam Levine is rarely thought of as a super controversial reality competition judge, especially when compared to more divisive figures such as Nicki Minaj and Simon Cowell. But things are looking a bit different this week, thanks to a rather negative comment caught on the mic during the top eight results show on The Voice. What did Adam say to stir up such heated controversy?
Apparently, Adam Levine isn’t very happy with the way America voted this week on The Voice. After the top six finalists were revealed on Tuesday night, the usually chipper judge was caught muttering, “I hate this country.” Obviously, Adam had reason to be unhappy, as his favorite contestants Sarah Simmons and Judith Hill were both eliminated. But many fans of the reality show feel that the judge’s angry response was incredibly inappropriate.
In the aftermath of last night’s remark, Adam Levine is trying to lighten the tone, insisting that his response was supposed to be funny, not divisive. And in hopes of underscoring those supposedly humorous intentions, Adam posted the definitions of words such as “joke” and “lighthearted” to his Twitter page.
Despite this explanation on Adam’s part, a number of Twitter users insist that the Adam Levine ‘I hate this country’ incident is indicative of the singer’s real attitude towards his nation. Some have gone so far as to accuse him of being a communist and not deserving of a spot on the judging panel.
What do you think? Does Adam Levine really hate America or did he just get caught in an emotional moment after his favorites were axed? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
