Adam Levine Under Fire For 'I Hate This Country' Remark On 'The Voice'

Adam Levine is under fire for a remark he made he on Tuesday's episode of 'The Voice' after two of his singers were eliminated.

"I hate this country," muttered Levine, whose now only has Amber Carrington on his team.

The comment was caught on Levine's mic, although the camera was focused on Blake Shelton.

"Adam Levine just said 'I hate this country' on TV. Not a smart move, dude. Not smart at all," said a critic on Twitter.

"Someone is gonna get fired for leaving Adam Levine's mic on," noted another.

For his part, Levine tweeted the definitions of the words "joke," "humorless," "light-hearted" and "misunderstand" on Twitter to tell fans it was intended as a joke before releasing an official statement.

“I obviously love my country very much and my comments last night were made purely out of frustration," he says.

"Being a part of The Voice, I am passionately invested in my team and want to see my artists succeed. Last night’s elimination of Judith and Sarah was confusing and downright emotional for me and my comments were made based on my personal dissatisfaction with the results."

"I am very connected to my artists and know they have long careers ahead, regardless of their outcome on the show.”
