Blake Shelton’s Response to Death Hoax Is Perfect
Blake Shelton was pretty bummed out to learn he was dead. The singer responded to a since-deleted death hoax with two words you'd expect if you follow the singer and coach on The Voice on Twitter:
The death hoax purported that Shelton died of unknown causes on Tuesday (March 28) and that he will be missed and not forgotten. Gossip Cop led the reporting of the rumor, but didn't link to the actual source. Evidence of the hoax comes from one man's tweet to Shelton:
More proof of life came via Shelton's tweet on Tuesday night, in which he's seen holding multiple copies of RaeLynn's new Wildhorse album. You may recall she was on one of Shelton's early teams on The Voice, and recently they toured together.
Surprisingly (or not), this isn't the first time Shelton's death has been falsely reported. In 2013 a fake news site claimed he'd died in a car accident. Other stars who've been victims of death hoaxes include Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson (his daughter), Garth Brooks and Reba McEntire. The January 2012 hoax involving McEntire sent her family into panic, but the singer would playfully joke about it later.
Shelton has mostly kept a quiet profile as of late as he prepares for the live rounds of NBC's reality singing show. His most recent run of tour dates wrapped in mid-March. It's not clear if he'll be at the ACM Awards on Sunday. He's not nominated or slated to perform.
