Levine 'I hate this country'

A hot microphone blunder after a night of upsets has Adam Levine eating his seemingly unpatriotic words.

Adam Levine had a few un-patriotic words after America voted off his contestants, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, from "The Voice" on Tuesday night.

The Maroon 5 musician muttered "I hate this country" after two of his strong singers got the boot, but America opted to save his third — country singer Amber Carrington.

Though Levine, 34, was probably just fuming from his loss on the show, his statement was picked up under the hot microphone … on live television.

Almost immediately, the singer felt the wrath of angry Americans on his Twitter page.

Some called for the singer to be fired from his position as judge on the NBC show. Others suggested he should be deported.

A few people came to his defense — saying Levine is right because America tends to favor Blake Shelton, the country musician and judge who has enjoyed a winning streak throughout the show.

Instead of tweeting an apology, on Wednesday Levine posted a series of definitions of words like "joke," "humorless," and "misunderstand" — in a lighthearted attempt to clarify that his allegiance is still to the flag.

 Later, the singer issued a statement to Us Weekly.

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

“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.” source
