But listen, not everyone was thrilled with the choice. AT ALL.

Blake Shelton is a man and he’s alive. That’s all the credit he’s getting from me.


Blake Shelton is sexy if you like a guy who's always about to lean in and tell you about hearty, healthy, American dog food.

People: we’re naming Blake Shelton Sexiest Man Alive! Women everywhere:

hmm I think they mean “People’s Living Man Who Does the Bare Minimum While Gwen Is Giving Everything, I Mean, Reall…

The choice honestly upset multiple demographics.

even a straight man can see there's no way blake shelton is the sexiest man alive. i dont think he's even the sexie…

Are straight women okay?? Because I know gay men didn't name Blake Shelton sexiest man alive

And the Idris Elba caucus was out in full force.

Dear Blake Shelton & @People Magazine .... Imma let y'all finish, but THIS is the Sexiest Man Alive!!

Best option: Blake Shelton resigns as Sexiest Man Alive, creating new vacancy and do over. Gov appoints Idris Elba,…

And yes, of course, there was dissent on the TL.

Me over here thinking Blake Shelton is so damn fine and then reading that my TL disagrees.

I have zero shame admitting I've got a man crush on @blakeshelton.

But generally? The vibe is WTF.

Blake Shelton is, at best, the sexiest divorced dad at this barbecue
