Country music star & The Voice coach Blake Shelton cracked a joke at the expense of Britney Spears during Sunday night’s ACM Awards in Las Vegas.
While addressing the crowd, he quipped:
‘If you don’t like live music, then you need to go down the block and see Britney Spears.’
Britney is currently in the middle of a two year residency at the Planet Hollywood casino in Vegas.
One quick scroll through Blake’s Twitter mentions and you can see Britney’s fans are not having it.

Dear Blake Shelton, Britney Spears is better than you.

In all fairness, Blake took shots at several other pop stars and even tried to re-create Ellen’s infamous ‘Oscar Selfie’ during his job as co-host for the night — most of which fell kind of flat, according to reviews of the show.
Comedy just might not be his thing…
