Levine: 'I Hate This Country'

Adam Levine said “I hate this country” live on national television Tuesday night. That statement of the Maroon 5 lead vocalist turned “The Voice” coach sparked an online outrage.

Lots of viewers were shocked to hear Levine’s negative comment, which stirred up a heated debate in the internet, since he’s not the type of a controversial reality competition judge.

While some think it was pure blunder, others argued that Levine may have referred to country music, although many netizens believe that he was sort of carried away by his emotions, or maybe disappointed with the results of “The Voice” top 6 voting.

Country singer Amber Carrington is the last one standing from Levine’s team after he lost two protegées. Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons were eliminated and had already bid the reality singing search goodbye.

After realizing that his “I hate this country” remark went viral on social networking sites, the pop rock singer immediately turned to Twitter to post the definitions of “joke,” “humorless,” “lighthearted,” and “misunderstand,” probably to save his arse and, of course, his NBC contract.

Levine posted the following on his Twitter account:
