Cee Lo Green Tweets Controversial Views on Rape

Cee Lo Green Tweets Controversial Views on Rape

Cee Lo Green leaves a court shortly after pleading no contest to a felony charge for slipping a woman ecstasy without her consent back in 2012 on Friday (August 29) in Los Angeles.

The 39-year-old singer and The Voice coach faced one drug charge as there was a lack of evidence leading to no rape charges being filed. The woman claimed she was unsure what had happened the night before when she woke up in bed next to Cee Lo, but his lawyer claims they had “consensual relations.”

A couple days after the hearing, Cee Lo took to Twitter to defend himself against critics before deleting all his tweets, and eventually his account.

“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent,” Cee Lo wrote. He added, “people who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”

Another tweet he sent out read, “so if I TRIED but did NOT succeed but the person said I DID then what really happened?”

    Give the poor man a break. At least he espoused his cogent opinion, that rape isn’t rape at all if it happens to someone when they’re unconscious. More and more, men are being overly scrutinized by a tacitly enforced hyper-feminist ideology. You go Cee Lo!

    and by th way trying to have sex with an unconscious person IS RAPE, this guy is sick

    Apparently Cee Lo abstains from alcohol, smoking, caffeine, as well as practising celibacy. He also believes in Jesus Christ the prince of peace and is a member of the Christian Science Church. Based of this information and personal facts about Cee Lo–and this is not a logical fallacy–he would never rape a woman or man, as doing such simply wouldn’t be congruent with his puritanical/ascetic ideals. This man is just in vocalizing his thoughts and opinions.

    Cee Lo is actually smart. He’d of made a great defence attorney. Quite a logical thinker this debonair gentleman is.

    allison Says:

    He gave her a drug to knock her out. Because he new consciously she would not say Yes to having sex with him.
    A person who is not conscious can’t say yes or no to anything. So your response should not mean if you can’t say no it must be yes.
    A person is conscious helps you take off her clothes.
    A person who is not conscious does not

    he raped her Says:

    if she is unconscious its rape
    if he drugged her or got her drunk its rape
    if she doesn’t know how she got there its rape

    he is guilty of attempted rape Says:

    Attempted rape is still a crime just like attempted murder is a crime
    He got off on a lesser charge but it appears to me that he is still guilty of attempted rape or actual rape.
    He sounds pissed that he got caught
    He should be required to register as a sex offender

    Men are NOT entitled to sex

    yesiam Says:

    @Hap: If you think he is “technically right”, then you both technically have issues understanding what consent means. An unconcious person cannot give consent. Consent is NEVER implied. This type of ignorance is the heart of the problem. People don’t even know wat is considered an a sexual assualt/rape.If you are a guy, Hap, educating yourself will keep you out of jail.

    blackculture is guilty of rape Says:

    the fact he had ecstasy in the first place points to him being involved in shady actions and behaviors and the kinds of people who promote and justify rape culture
    black culture is guilty of rape culture

    “people who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
    Not if they’re drugged, genius.

    I know I shouldn’t be shocked at the men AND women on here supporting him. (Lise, you are a moron. Please do not ever breed.)
    I’m hoping that the majority of them are simply bored trolls who are killing time waiting for their moms to come home with their Red Bull, pork rinds, and anti-psychotic meds.

    I saw him alighting a limousine the other day. He’s a foot first kind of guy. He was wearing white cowboy boots. Now they’re lodged in his mouth…

    @Jess: @Jess: His lack of intelligence became evident the second he thought tweeting those thins was a goid idea. He basically hung himself. If there was a person who was giving him the benefit of doubt now they are sure he did rape that woman. The fact that he clearly doesn’t understand what rape and consent is doesn’t exonarate his action…actions he just described to the world himself via tweet. Dumb.
