Blake Shelton has launched a rant at a music critic who published an unflattering appraisal of the singer's reality TV show The Voice.
Shelton, who is a coach on the singing contest, became enraged when Houston Chronicle music critic Joey Guerra posted a link to his latest TV blog on his Twitter.com page with the caption, "The Voice sends one singer back to Texas. Don't worry, it's not the one we care about."
In the blog, the writer mentioned the elimination of contestant Holly Tucker, insisting her exit took "much too long", and the comments infuriated Shelton, who launched a scathing attack on Guerra.
In a series of posts on Twitter.com, the singer writes, "Hey Joey Guerra... It's people like you Joey Guerra that make me sick... Holly is not only a talented singer but a great person that's simply chasing a dream... I can't stand a person that makes a point to write hurtful things about kids just trying their best... How much do y'all wanna bet he'd never criticise my team OR me like that face to face...."
