CeeLo Green apologizes for Twitter rape comments

CeeLo Green apologized Tuesday night for the statements about rape which he says were “attributed” to him on Twitter. In a series of offensive tweets, Green argued that women can only be raped if they are conscious, writing, “women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” Following the ensuing outrage, TBS confirmed yesterday that Green’s reality showThe Good Life, was canceled. Green, however, tried to distance himself from the statements in his apology Tuesday night after his Twitter account was reactivated following its deletion.

Green’s initial tweets came after he pleaded no contest Friday to a felony charge of furnishing ecstasy to a woman in 2012. Prosecutors did not charge Green with rape on grounds of insufficient evidence.

Cee Lo Green pleaded not guilty Monday to giving a woman ecstasy at a Los Angeles restaurant during a 2012 dinner, and prosecutors declined to file a rape count against the singer because of insufficient evidence.

Green spoke only once during a brief arraignment hearing to acknowledge he understood the court’s scheduling of his case.

He sat in a front row of the courtroom with his girlfriend while waiting for a bondsman to post his $30,000 bail. His case is due back in court on Nov. 20.

Green was pleased that the rape charge was rejected and will address the ecstasy count in court, his attorney Blair Berk wrote in a statement.
