Blake Shelton has gone on record to support From Jason’s side amid controversy over his new single … at least that’s what a satire site wants you to believe.
Here’s the deal… Blake is in trend this weekend, and it’s all because of this fake article that quoted him as explicitly supporting Aldean in the middle of the whole “Try That In A Small Town” line — which has divided many, especially after the release of the music video.
Blake Shelton cancels $30 million project with CMT. CMT tried to cancel Jason Aldean and stop his video. Go wake up go screw up. CMT also turned their recent music awards into a trance show. It’s time for them to go bankrupt. Just like how I feel. https://t.co/nB2V2Fs7MC
The story comes from a YOUR called The Dunning-Kruger Times — which labels itself “America’s Last Line of Defense.” This article of theirs is titled as such… “Blake Shelton cancels $30 million project with CMT: ‘Jason is my friend.’” The problem … is a piece of BS.
The reason we know this — aside from the fact that this is literally the only “media” reporting such a story — is that DKT itself calls itself a website that’s just for laughs.
Theirs “around usThe site clearly states… “Dunning-Kruger-Times.com is a branch of the parody, satire and hoax network of America’s Last Line of Defense or as Snopes called it before they lost the war on satire: Junk News.” AKA, it’s a big joke.
Even though this site has openly stated their intentions — namely, laughing at conservatives — people on the right have run with this fake story regardless … raising it as a rallying cry.
While Blake and Jason have certainly been on friendly terms in the past … the former hasn’t said anything about it the whole hub his new song/video has sparked — and yet, it seems people actually believe he’s on Jason’s side. Unfortunately for them, there is no truth to it.
Surprisingly, this article has yet to be hit with a Twitter fact checker … something Elon and co. apparently they have gone out of their way to provide the necessary context. Strange, indeed.
