Watch Blake Shelton Read Hilariously Mean Tweets About Being Named ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

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

Every year, People Magazine crowns one lucky celebrity the “Sexiest Man Alive,” and they’re usually all justifiably hot. Past winners were Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, soccer legend David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth, Channing Tatum…like I said, all hot. 

This year, however, People decided to shake things up a little, and named country music superstar Blake Shelton and his barbed wire tattoo the Sexiest Man Alive.

Why? I don’t know. Nobody knows. Some might argue that whoever’s in charge at People did eeny meeny miny moe with a bunch of names, or picked a name out of a hat and just went with it, or something. 

That said, when news broke that 2017’s Sexiest Man Alive was Blake Shelton, a lot of confused individuals took to Twitter to voice their opinions on how un-sexy they think he is, and then Blake was like “OK, OK, I hear y’all loud and clear” and recorded a video of himself reading off some (hilariously) mean tweets, Jimmy Kimmel-style. 

“Blake Shelton looks like the dad in a drug commercial where they list off the side effects at the end while you watch him build a birdhouse.”

That is spot. on. And really funny. Sorry, Blake.

Here are some other merciless tweets about 2017’s Sexiest Man Alive:

And lastly, this whole debacle wouldn’t be complete without some words of wisdom from other celebs, like Hugh Jackman

Ryan Reynolds…

And lastly, Sir Patrick Stewart.
