Cee Lo Green Shocking Deleted Tweets: It’s Not Rape If She’s Unconscious
Cee Lo Green has deleted his Twitter account after a series of outrageous tweets about rape.
On Friday, the singer had pleaded no contest in a case alleging that he drugged a woman with ecstasy in 2012 without her consent before having sex with her.
Over the weekend, Green decided to discuss the matter on Twitter — and things got very ugly.
In since-removed tweets, Green defended his actions by suggesting that it’s not rape if the alleged victim is unconscious.
“@N7IRL women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!! But point taken,” wrote the star.
“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent,” he tweeted at a trio of followers.
Green continued, “When someone brakes (sic) on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof 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?” asked “The Voice” star.
Apparently realizing how his comments sounded, Green became apologetic.
He wrote, “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,” continued Green. “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 apparently shut down his Twitter account, which is inactive as of this writing.
No rape charges were filed against Green in the alleged drugging case due to insufficient evidence.
His lawyer argued that the duo had “consensual relations,” even though the woman says she woke up naked in Green’s bed with no memory of the previous night.
He was sentenced to three years of probation and 360 hours of community service.
