CeeLo Apologizes Over Social Media Rape Remarks
CeeLo is apologizing to fans after making ignorant and controversial remarks about rape on social media this weekend. The drama comes just days after the singer pled no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman.
Green was sentenced to three years of probation and 45 days of community service before talking about the case on social media.
“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously,” he tweeted, according to Buzzfeed, “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” He later added, “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH implies consent.”
The “Forget You” singer has since deleted the tweets and issued this apology on Twitter Monday:
“Let me first praise God for exoneration fairness and 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.”
Who is tweeting for you, bruh?
