Blake Shelton loves pushing folks' buttons via Twitter. And if he's had a few drinks beforehand, the more tweets the merrier!

The country music star and judge on The Voice joined the American Sniper conversation on Monday, tweeting how he couldn't wait to see the Clint Eastwood-directed flick and taking a stand against the likes of Seth Rogen and Michael Moore, who (also via Twitter) weren't quite buying what Eastwood was selling.

"I can't WAIT to see American Sniper!!!" Shelton's mini-harangue began. A few tweets later, he wrote, "Sickens me to see celebrities or anybody slam the very people who protect their right to talk shit.. #truecowards."

And that's that!

Talking to E! News yesterday while preparing for his big dual Saturday Night Live gig as host and musical guest, Shelton admitted, "Sometimes I probably say things on [Twitter] I shouldn't say. Just like last night, I had a few drinks and had to go off about a movie I want to see."

But he's not too concerned about being judged by his tweets.

"I don't take myself that seriously, so I love to get on Twitter and have fun—and I think I make my managers a nervous wreck, but I feel like I've made it to this point, so what's the worst that's gonna happen?"

On a more serious note, country singer Craig Morgan decried Rogen by name for "running [his] mouth" after The Interview star tweeted Sunday that American Sniper reminded him of a snippet of a propaganda film that's playing during a scene of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

For his own part, Rogen responded to the backlash on Monday afternoon:
