The country star learned very quickly that Shakira's fans are fiercely protective of her. Shakira Fans Threaten Blake Shelton Over Tweet

Have you ever had the misfortune of trying to talk to someone and you were horrified to realize that you just couldn’t understand them?  It happens to the best of us and, usually, we make an effort to not draw attention to it but when it happens to celebrities, the world tends to hear about it – especially if they announce the struggle on Twitter.

Shakira will be joining The Voice soon where she will be judging alongside Blake Shelton.  The problem is that the country star tweeted that, when he met the Columbian singer, he couldn’t understand anything that she said.  They both do have very different accents!

The problems really started, though, when he shared his communication woes with his Twitter followers and was surprised to receive death threats from the South American beauty’s fans.

In a recent appearance on Chelsea Lately, he and Chelsea Handler poked fun at the situation which, Shelton says, surprised him since it was only “a joke!”  He does say, however, that he genuinely doesn’t understand anything she says…

In case you missed it, here’s a video of the interview.  It was actually pretty funny to hear him describe the situation and, of course, Handler took it all a step further.
