Openly gay country music star Chely Wright has praised singer Blake Shelton as LGBT supportive.

Wright, who came out lesbian last year, tweeted support for Shelton after he apologized for an anti-gay tweet.

After Shelton, a judge on NBC's reality talent show The Voice, apologized on Thursday at the urging of gay media watchdog GLAAD, Wright tweeted: “Way to go @BlakeShelton!”

“I want my fans and @nbcthevoice fans to know that anti-gay and lesbian violence is unacceptable!!!!” Shelton tweeted to his more than 300,000 followers.

Wright messaged that she did not find Shelton's “joke” funny, but added that he's “a good guy.”

“I know @BlakeShelton wouldn't want anyone to think that he was suggesting that ant-gay violence is okay,” she tweeted. “Blake made it clear that he is lgbt supportive.”

In Shelton's original tweet sent overnight, he messaged that he was rewriting the lyrics to Shania Twain's Any Man of Mine from “Any man of mine better walk the line – Better show me a teasin' squeezing' pleasin' kinda time” to “Any man that tries Touching my behind He's gonna be a beaten, bleedin', heaving kinda of guy...”

Aggravating Shelton's messages was the news that two contestants on The Voice are gay males.

In a blog post at its website, GLAAD said Shelton had “displayed some astoundingly bad judgment” in demanding an apology.
