Personally, when the Westboro Baptist Church talks we try to do everything except listen. The group is notorious for protesting events (even funerals) of those they believe have “sin” with highly offensive signs and hateful slogans.
Their latest target? Everyone’s favorite country crooning Voice coach, Blake Shelton.
Apparently the WBC objects to the fact that Blake divorced his first wife and later married Miranda Lambert. The group’s signs read “Blake Betrayed His Wife” and “Blake Made Miranda a Whore.”
On the @WBCSigns Twitter handle, the group writes, “BS ha a wife. Kaynette Williams. Like a treacherous dog, BS sloughed her off, panted after Miranda Lambert & ‘married’ her. THAT is why f—s think it’s OK to marry. Now BS prances around the set of NBC’s The Voice pretending he’s not a vulgar adulterer hated by God.”
The offensive comments certainly aren’t saved solely for Blake. In fact, earlier this month country singer Vince Gill made headlines for confronting members of the Westboro Baptist Church who protested outside of his concert for the same reasons as Blake.
“I came out to see what hatred really looked like in the face,” Vince told those holding signs.
Blake commended Vince’s response, and had some choice words of his own for the group.
“Hey WBC.. I’ve got one more sin for ya... Blow me,” he tweeted.
