Blake Shelton’s latest song is being criticized for insensitivity.

On New Year’s Eve, the country singer and “The Voice” coach debuted his new song “Minimum Wage”, inspired by his love for fiancée Gwen Stefani, during NBC’s year-end special.

The song, which features the lyric, “Girl, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage,” was met with a wave of backlash on social media, with many calling out the multi-millionaire singer for referencing working at minimum wage.

Some called the song “tone deaf,” while others noted the financial difficulties facing many Americans during the pandemic.

On Monday Shelton tweeted in what appeared to be a response to the controversy:

He also referred to Ronnie Dunn having his back, likely referencing the singer’s post defending the song.

“The ‘beef’ is yet another of those misguided social issue (cultural scams) that are concocted to further divide this country,” Dunn wrote. “Now, they want to attack country singers for being successful. I slept on a mattress on the floor in a musician friend’s spare bedroom and played BEER JOINTS / DIVE BARS for years before I ever made a $100. Most country singers pay dues and go through things to become successful that no sane human being would.

“I grew up poor. My father was a truck driver, avid country music fan and oilfield worker all his life. My mother worked a ‘minimum wage’ job as a small town bank teller to help support a family with four kids. The entire world wants to hitch a free ride on the American Dream. Those that don’t want to diminish or destroy it. Read the full lyrics to Blake’s song. Hell, I wish I’d written it.”
