Blake Shelton Reading Tweets About His Sexiest Man Alive Title is Hilarious
November 12, 2020
Ever since Blake Sheltonwas named 2017’s Sexiest Man Alive by People, so many people have come out of the woodwork to share their opinions… and not all of them are good. Twitter has been blowing up with messages from everyone who disagrees with People‘s choice and Blake is definitely aware of those tweets… you know, because he just read them out loud for a truly hilarious video.
In the tradition of Jimmy Kimmel‘s “Mean Tweets” segment, Blake took a second while hanging out backstage at The Ellen Showto read some of the rudest (yet funniest) messages he’s found about his new title. We’ll put it this way — people are pretty pissed that Blake’s wearing his fictional sexy crown this year, and most of them also think that not only is he not the sexiest man alive, but he’s not even in the running. Ouch!
No matter how you feel about Blake being the Sexiest Man Alive this year, you have to admit it: These tweets are really funny, and so is seeing Blake react to them. Some of them are pretty clever, after all.

Okay, so some of them were kind of cruel, like the one that insinuated all the actually sexy men must have died in some kind of plague overnight for Blake to be the only remaining option. But others were downright hilarious. In fact, the best tweet he read of all? “Blake Shelton isn’t even the sexiest man in this Waffle House.” Whoa. Harsh. Funny, but harsh.
Another Twitter user also made an excellent point: People being pissed about Blake Shelton being named the Sexiest Man Alive this year is actually what has united so many of us, and at a time like this, isn’t that exactly what we need? Yeah, it would be better if we all united over something positive, but hey — we’ve gotta take what we can get.
We’re just glad that Blake has a good sense of humor and doesn’t seem to be too upset at all the haters who have made it their personal mission to let the world know how they feel about a magazine thinking that he’s good looking. It had to be a hard decision for People — there are a lot of sexy guys out there, you know. But hopefully, Blake still enjoys his time as the reigning Sexy Man while it lasts, regardless of what people think.
Like he said in his hashtag in the video, don’t hate him because he’s beautiful.
