Cee-Lo’s Creepy Tweet About Rape

Cee-Lo Green found himself in engulfed in controversy, this weekend, after posting an insensitive and utterly ridiculous tweet about rape. His tweet was particularly offensive because Green, who brought us classic karaoke jams like “F You” and “Closet Freak,” was accused of rape in 2012 after a woman claimed he slipped ecstasy into her drink without consent. Though Cee-Lo was never charged due to lack of evidence, his tweets have us questioning his “innocence” (more than we were when the case first presented itself).

“People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!! If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! So WITH implies consent. . . . When someone brakes on [sic] a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof that anyone was raped . . . Don’t be dismissive now engage me for the truth! You can’t just say regardless in a court of law. So if I TRIED but did NOT succeed but the person said I DID then what really happened.”

He later deleted the tweet and apologized, saying:

“Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context. I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this. Please forgive me as it was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I’d never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.”

He then deleted his entire account.
