Any man that tries
Touching my behind
He's gonna be a beaten, bleedin', heaving kind of guy…

UPDATE: Shelton responds to the outcry over his tweet.


UPDATE II: GLAAD has called for an apology.

UPDATE III: Shelton responds again.


And finally:


So, I think Shelton probably will think a bit before he tweets from now on.
