People enjoyed last night! I’m guessing you’re gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f*** you!”

Martinez, who’s on Team Cee Lo, told that “right away, he messaged us and was like, ‘I just want you guys to know that this just came out and that’s not how I feel. They are totally messing it up, blowing it up, and I just want to apologize to you guys first.’ He was like, ‘so, if you start hearing stuff, just know that I love you and that’s just sometimes what happens in the business.’ ”
