The many reasons why James Blunt is a warrior in the Twitter battlefield

BC9547B7C59935B416EB9D442408E_h498_w598_m2 (1)I used to think Rihanna was the only celebrity who trolls on the social media shouldn’t mess with. I never reckoned with pop star James Blunt. The guy may have a soothing singing voice, but he also has a rather sharp (and hilarious) tongue on him, returning perfectly crafted smackdowns at trolls who take a pop at him on Twitter.

Damn! I have been laughing ever since I stumbled on his tweets. And you will too. Check on it.Screen_20140103_03100Screen_20140103_03115Screen_20140103_030655Screen_20140103_030850Screen_20140103_030911Screen_20140103_031001Screen_20140103_031120Screen_20140103_031139Screen_20140103_031212Screen_20140103_031238Screen_20140103_031332Screen_20140103_031355Screen_20140103_031532Screen_20140103_031558Screen_20140103_0306551Screen_20140103_0306552Screen_20140103_0308501Screen_20140103_0312381Screen_20140103_0315321Screen_20140103_0315322

      Thinking ’bout it now, I’d say he’s living up to his name, ‘Blunt’, slashing and slicing through to the very essence of those scorning him. They’ll think twice ’bout taking a swipe at him next time. LOL!
