Unearthed tweets from Blake Shelton's past spark outrage

Blake Shelton on His Fans Growing With Him and the Secrets to Drunk Tweeting

Blake Shelton probably thought he'd seen the last of these!

The country crooner has remained relatively scandal-free in his career, but his spotless persona is no longer after followers unearthed questionable, eyebrow-raising tweets that the singer purportedly tweeted in 2009.

Screenshots of the alleged tweets, which have racist, homophobic and mysoginistic undertones, were shared by the Twitter accounts @TheMusicTea.

"Sooo... I just figured out a great excuse for my sick fantasy about Dakota Fanning. I thought she was Amanda Seyfried... " he wrote in 2010.
