People named Blake Shelton its Sexist Man Alive this week and the pushback in some circles has been fierce. Blake seems to always get the last laugh, though, as is apparent in a new video taped backstage during a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

A calm and collected and Blake opened with an explanation of what he was about to do. “I’m just wallowing, celebrating my People magazine Sexiest Man Alive honor that’s been bestowed upon me,” he explained. “And I wanted to look at social media and what’s being said out there by my supportive people.” Blake then proceeded to read some not-so-supportive – and hilarious – tweets.

Among them:

“I woke up this morning to news that Blake Shelton is the sexiest man alive. RIP every sexy man in the world who died in the Great Sexy Plague of 2017 overnight. You will be missed.”

“Woke up and saw that Blake Shelton is the sexiest man alive. Did a bunch of celebrities die or something last night?”

“Blake Shelton is sexy if you like a guy who’s always about to lean in and tell you about a hearty, healthy, American dog food.”

“Blake Shelton isn’t even the sexist man at this Waffle House!”
