The “F*** You” singer recently sent a less-than-favorable tweet to music editor Andrea Swensson after she negatively critiqued his Thursday performance with Rihanna at the Target Center in Minneapolis: “I respect your criticism, but be fair!,” “The Voice” coach wrote on Friday. “People enjoyed last night! I’m guessing you’re gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f*** you!”
But after deleting the comment, Green told Us Weekly he may have had a slip-up. “She was very critical of me. At the time I didn’t even know what gender the person was. I was being a little outspoken that night, a little outrageous,” he tells Us. “I always expect people to assume that everything I do is part of my character and sense of humor…It wasn’t taken so well, apparently.”
“I most certainly am not harboring any sort of negative feeling toward the gay community. I don’t have an opinion on people with different religious, sexual or political preferences. I’m one of the most liberal artists that I think you will ever meet, and I pride myself on that. Two of the remaining members that I have on my team on The Voice are proud and outspokenly gay. We just did a team performance of ‘Everyday People,’ and I picked that song for us to do specifically to highlight how we can get along even though we’re so different.”
