De­bra Mess­ing calls Twit­ter truce with Blake Shel­ton over Trump

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Ac­tress and out­spo­ken Demo­crat De­bra Mess­ing has called a Twit­ter truce with coun­try singer and “The Voice” judge Blake Shel­ton fol­low­ing a po­lit­i­cally charged spat.

Shel­ton told Bill­board in an in­ter­view pub­lished Thurs­day that Repub­li­can nom­i­nee Donald Trump “says what he thinks, and he has proven that you don’t al­ways have to be so afraid.” He added, “A lot of peo­ple are pulling for him, no mat­ter how much Hol­ly­wood fights it.”

Af­ter see­ing the com­ments, Mess­ing tweeted Shel­ton’s girl­friend, Gwen Ste­fani: “Please talk to your man to not vote for the per­son who will STRIP you of your rights.”

Af­ter Shel­ton de­nied on Twit­ter that he was back­ing Trump, Mess­ing deleted her tweet and apol­o­gized. Shel­ton replied, “Thank you sis. I don’t en­dorse any­body. For this very rea­son!!”
