Adam Levine got in trouble on Twitter yesterday, after he made a comment on "The Voice" and people took it the wrong way.  It happened on Tuesday night, when two of Adam's last three singers got eliminated.  While he was off camera he said, quote, "I hate this country" . . . talking about the voters who that voted against his team.  And people started acting like he was a TRAITOR.

Here's his Twitter feed.  After he got hammered, he Tweeted the dictionary definitions for "joke," "humorless," "lighthearted," and "misunderstand."  Then people went after him for THAT . . . so he had to release a 'proper' statement to the media.)

You can hear Adam say that he hates America at the 1:15 mark in the video below:
