After spending much of Thursday (July 28) on Twitter trying to explain what side he was (or wasn’t) on politically, and criticizing the media for spinning (or not spinning) things properly, Blake Shelton posted his best tweet of the day.
He retweeted his girlfriend Gwen Stefani’s sweet video of an anti-bullying moment at one of her recent shows.
“Now THIS is what they should be writing about,” Shelton wrote.
So, Blake, here’s that story:
Stefani takes a poster board from one of her front row fans, and reads it aloud. “My son was bullied from first to fifth grade. He’d come home every day upset, but he’d go in his room and listen to your music and smile,” Stefani yells over the cheers of the crowd. Then she demands of the boy, “Get up here right now.”
The boy climbs up on stage, they hug, he cries, and they smile for all the cameras.
And here’s what Stefani had to say about the moment, when she shared the video with her fans.
“About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God every day that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world – last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers #zerotoleranceforbullies #onelove #thisiswhatthetruthfeelslike Gx”
