Ellen Responds to Blake Shelton’s Cruel Tweet

The popular vegan talk-show host spoke out against the singer’s tweet about animal-cruelty.

The Voice star Blake Shelton has been criticized by animal lovers after admitting via Twitter that he intentionally ran over a turtle on the street. On July 27, the musician tweeted, “Does anyone know if the Eastern Box turtle is protected in Oklahoma? If so I didn't just swerve to the shoulder of the road to smash one.” Immediately after the tweet became public, Shelton received angry messages from followers, animal-advocates, and even adored talk-show host, Ellen DeGeneres. DeGeneres tweeted to Shelton on July 30, saying, “@blakeshelton Here’s what’s funny: knock-knock jokes. Here’s what’s not funny: animal cruelty.”
