Maroon 5 front man and "The Voice" mentor Adam Levine is taking a lot of heat for something he said during last night's elimination on "The Voice".

As spots were being claimed for the top spots on last night's "The Voice" it became painfully clear that Maroon 5 singer and "The Voice" coach Adam Levine was very unhappy with the way that America voted.

Network insiders lay the blame on a hot mic when Adam is clearly heard saying "I hate this country," during the elimination.

Almost immediately, NBC and social network sites exploded with comments expressing anger over Levine's comment. Many viewers thought the comment was in especially bad taste considering recent events such as the Moore, OK tornado, the bombings at the Boston Marathon, and last weekend's holiday.

 

 

Adam jumped on Twitter early this morning to offer four definitions of words that he felt applied to the situation; joke, humorless, lighthearted and misunderstand.

Share your thoughts on Mr. Levine's comment. It was definitely in bad taste, but do you feel that is was taken completely out of context?
