The impromptu performance happened simultaneously as Twitter users accused Blake of allegedly tweeting racist, homophobic and more offensive messages five years ago.

One of the tweets reportedly from 2011 said: “Wish the d***head in the next room would either shut up or learn some English so I would at least know what he's planning to bomb.”
