The group said they were going to boycott Blake’s upcoming concert on account of him being a sinner, citing his “betrayal’ to his first wife (read: divorce) and claimed that he “turned [his wife Miranda Lambert] into a whore.

But Blake didn’t just sit back and take it! In fact, the 37-year-old country stud had pretty snarky words for the group!

Blake is one of many celebrities that the Church has gone after; they recently protested a concert of Taylor Swift as well as Cory Monteith’s funeral.
The Westboro Baptist Church kept harassing Blake, even announcing they’re releasing a parody of one of his songs and reaching out to his pals on The Voice.

But Blake stayed light, and kept poking fun at the group. Overall, he doesn’t seem too threatened.
He tweeted: “Oh no! Not a picket! What will I ever do?!! The dreaded wrath of the picket!!”
