Adam Levine has been called out by fans for saying, "I hate this country," during a live episode of The Voice on Tuesday night.

The Maroon 5 singer didn't realize his microphone was still on when he uttered the words under his breath after two of his remaining three contestants, Judith Hill and Sarah Simmons, were voted off the show (Levine's final contestant, country singer Amber Carrington, was spared elimination).
