Blake Shelton addresses the Westboro Baptist Church's plan to picket his concert

Blake

And there's our boy. 

Back a couple of days ago, I told you about the plan that the crazy folks over at the Westboro Baptist Church had to picket Blake Shelton's October 3 concert in Kansas City, Missouri. Blake remained quiet on the subject, probably because he was busy getting the new season of "The Voice" underway. 

Now, however, he's finally addressed the threat of having a bunch of yelling, bigoted picketers at his show next week ... and it's been handled in true Blake fashion.

Here's the brief exchange:

Blake: "Hey WBC.. I've got one more sin for ya... Blow me."

WBC: "A great response to Bible Words, BS! #not #StillPicketingYou pic.twitter.com/h2OcWQlk5J"

Blake: "Hey @WBCSays.. This isn't about God. It's about me using this opportunity to make y'all look like the absolute complete dipshits you are."

Blake: "Also @WBCSays... Y'all may want to keep an eye on ur women at my show.. I've got a few band and crew guys that'll be smacking that holy ass!"

And that was the end of Blake's interaction with the hate group, although they continued for the rest of the night to attack him, Miranda, their fans, Hollywood, various websites, The Voice, and just about anyone else they could think of to talk crap about. 

Sad really. The thing is, these guys really love all the publicity. They feed off of it and I imagine tomorrow this story will be retweeted by them simply because they love being mentioned by anyone, even if that person happens to think that they're a bunch of ass-hats. 

It'll be interesting to see if anything happens next week when they hit Kansas City for their ridiculous protest.
