Blake Shelton shook the internet when he disclosed his intention to grow back his mullet as a "symbol of hope."


Besides canceling events and tours, celebrities have shown that there is another way to battle the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

According to People, Blake Shelton has every intention of bringing back the mullet, his famous and well-loved '90s hairstyle, since most of his work events are canceled indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Blake had previously informed his beloved fans that his tour had been postponed due to the fast-growing coronavirus pandemic.


The news, which he shared in a tweet on Tuesday, March 17, also included the information that his longtime girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, was on the same page with him.

It didn't take long before fans began replying to the country singer's tweets with words of encouragement and excitement.

Fox News noted that one fan had shared an image of Blake with his mullet with the caption "Omg the apocalypse is really here. Can't wait to see this!"



Another user cheered Blake on by stating that he looked even better with a mullet on than he did with his regular hairdo.

Meanwhile, other people had reason to wonder if his partner was really in support of his plans, as he had said in the tweet.

Today recalled that during his first mullet growth, Gwen had made it her second job to make fun of the hairstyle.



Not only had she changed her profile picture to one of Blake rocking his mullet, but she had also uploaded a throwback image of the "Used to Love You" singer rocking the same hairstyle.

Soon after she made those moves, Gwen told Andy Cohen that she never thought she would be one of those people who would date somebody with a mullet.


Before his "big" social media announcement, Blake had previously informed his beloved fans that his tour had been postponed due to the fast-growing coronavirus pandemic.

According to a People report, the "Nobody but You" crooner had taken to Twitter a few weeks back to share that his final tour stops have been shifted to spring 2021.
