No one knows how to shut down the haters quite like Blake Shelton. Late Thursday night the country crooner took to Twitter to reply to some of his followers when he got mixed up with an online troll too.
One tweeter named Lori Baker wrote, “@blakeshelton I ‘used to love you’ not so much anymore. I turn off the radio at work when any of ur songs come on. Can’t stand u anymore,” referencing Shelton’s girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, and her song “Used to Love You.”
Oh no!!!! Now what will I do?!!! Someone who doesn't know me at all can't stand me!!! How will I live?!! https://t.co/t8LyFKjyiA
The Voice coach cheekily replied, “Oh no!!!! Now what will I do?!!! Someone who doesn’t know me at all can’t stand me!!! How will I live?!!”
Enthused by his response, Baker continued, saying the Oklahoma native had “changed and not in a good way.” Shelton shot back, “I’m starting to realize that maybe you’re a little slow..? I’ll help you. If you don’t like me then why follow me?”

After one more brief exchange, Shelton blocked the follower and continued responding to his fans. He wrapped up the Twitter spree writing, “Ok kids I’m going to bed.. I have a long day of serious big time important s**t to do tomorrow. I love y’all.”
Haters aside, Shelton has plenty to celebrate these days. Though he ended his marriage to Miranda Lambert last summer, the singer has come back strong from the split, releasing chart-topping new music and starting a new romance with Stefani.
