Adam’s on-air sputter caused a backlash on Twitterverse with some users defending Levine’s obvious joke, while others claim he should be deported or fired from the show.
Rather than apologizing, Levine blasted Twitter with a series of defense tweets when he posted the definitions for the words, joke, humorless, lighthearted and misunderstanding.
joke-noun1. something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or prankish act

Stay sexy, Adam. Your first amendment right of freedom of speech has got you covered.
