CeeLo Green’s Twitter Comments Cost Him Reality Show

Posted by monique On September - 3 - 2014 0 Comment

CeeLo Green has gotten himself in a world of trouble with his tweets about rape. Green’s Twitter problem stems from his earlier plea Friday of no contest to a felony charge of giving ecstacy to a woman in 2012. Prosecutors didn’t charge for rape because there wasn’t sufficient evidence to charge Green with such a crime. Superior Court Judge Mark Young sentenced Green to three years of formal probation and 45 days of community service.

Green took to Twitter to comment on rape, stating that women can only be raped if they are conscious. “[W]omen who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” he wrote in response to another Twitter user.

People were rightly outraged at Green’s comments, which prompted him to delete his Twitter account, but later reactivated it with an apology. The apology includes Green attempting to separate himself from the comments, stating that the comments are “attributed” to him. “I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe.”

Even still, TBS didn’t take the outrage lightly. Tuesday, TBS confirmed that “The Good Life,” Green’s reality show with his group, Goodie Mob, had been cancelled.
