Asked at The Voice Top Five show at Universal Studios on Monday if he had ever been in a similar situation, the “Boys ‘Round Here” singer said:
“Man, you know what, I can’t say that I have. It never ceases to amaze me how stupid people can be just to try – I can’t even imagine why,” he said.
It’s probably a good thing he has never been in a similar situation, Shelton explained, because he might have “stooped to that guy’s level.”
“I would’ve been the guy kicking him in the nuts … or something.”
But the country star wasn’t all that worried about his pal, who walked away unharmed after the incident.

“I could pretty much tell he was okay when I saw the picture of him with flour slammed across his face,” Shelton said. “I was like, ‘Well, he looks like he’s still standing upright.’ ”
