Blake Shelton: 'I don't know anybody that has as many online haters'

Singer and 'The Voice' coach Blake Shelton has revealed that he has finally learned not to let offensive messages sent to him on social media get under his skin. 

The country sensation recently told Sirius XM that he's had to slow down on the Twitter front because he was getting so much online abuse that he didn't know how to handle it:

"The last couple of years, year and a half, I kinda had to dial it back a little bit. At first it was fun for me to get on there - I don't know that anybody has as many haters out there as I do, at least in the country music world - I think that's what was fun about Twitter for me, to get down there and be like 'oh, really,' and just fire back at 'em."

He went onto add that eventually he decided that it was out of his control so he no longer allows himself to get 'worked up' over it:

"Next thing I know, that became a popular thing for people to look at on my Twitter page, just me firing back at the booger-eaters out there. After a while ... I just decided, man, I can't get worked up over this stuff anymore."
