James Blunt Hilarious One-liners Made Him the 'Wittiest Celebrity' In Twitter

James Blunt created history with his iconic song 'You're Beautiful' in 2005. His second best-selling album 'Moon Landing' was released in 2013. However, what might have made the year more memorable for the British singer was the way he handled his haters on social media such as Twitter.
British singer James Blunt and his girlfriend Sofia Wellesley arrive at the Cannes festival palace to attend the NRJ Music Awards in Cannes December 14, 2013.
Many of the people who apparently hate James Blunt as a singer posted several derogatory comments about him on Twitter. They seemed to be in a mood to let Blunt know about what they felt about him and tagged him in their comment. That was how he came to know about the offensive statements addressed toward him. He could have easily ignored them as most celebrities prefer not responding to such insulting remarks made by random people. On the contrary, Blunt decided to confront them - in an exceedingly hilarious manner.
What the haters might not have been aware of was that Blunt, who recently got engaged to Sofia Wellesley, served the British army for six years. He was an armoured reconnaissance officer in Kosovo NATO deployment. He has proved that he is not someone to dodge missiles. He would rather send stronger missiles back, at least verbally.
Here are some of the most incredible replies by the English musician, making him the wittiest celebrity on Twitter.
