A hot mic on NBC’s hit talent show “The Voice” caught Maroon 5 singer and co-host Adam Levine saying, “I hate this country,” after singer Amber Carrington was “saved by America,” The Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.
The co-host tried to assuage the anger that ensued after his on-air faux pas, by tweeting a series of definitions this morning.
“joke- noun 1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or prankish act.”
The singer also tweeted definitions for “humorless,” “lighthearted” and “misunderstand.”
The Examiner reports that voters cut Mr. Levine’s team members Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons from the show Tuesday night.
