Cee Lo Green Apologizes for Controversial Rape Tweets: Comments Were 'Idiotic' & 'Untrue'

Cee Lo Green returned to Twitter last night (September 2) to apologize for his controversial comments about rape.

“I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe,” the 39-year-old singer and The Voice judge tweeted out last night to his followers.

This all started when Cee Lo faced charges after allegedly slipping a woman ecstasy back in 2012. The woman woke up next to Cee Lo, but was not sure what happened to her.

“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent,” Cee Lo wrote in his original tweets, before deleting them. 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?”
