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?”
