CeeLo Green Axed From TBS
When CeeLo Green tweeted his “defintion” of rape, #BlackTwitter, feminists and anyone with common sense dragged him through the mud over the insensitive comment.
In case you missed it, he tweeted then deleted:
“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.”
CeeLo, who was accused of rape back in 2012, then issued this apology:
I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe.
He may have issued, what he calls, an “apology” to clear things up, but CeeLo’s week isn’t over. It’s reported that TBS canceled his reality show, “The Good Life” after one season. The show was supposed to bring back his old group Goodie Mob, but after low ratings, the show got axed. The network says that they didn’t cancel it because of his comments, but we think it’s a coincidence that it still got the boot the same week he gave this apology.
