CeeLo Green has managed to infuriate millions of people in a matter of seconds. He tweeted some controversial statements about rape on Monday and later deleted his Twitter account, just days after pleading no contest to having sex with a woman he gave ecstasy to during dinner.
“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent. People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” he tweeted.
According to Buzzfeed, “Prosecutors rejected a rape charge against Green when he was charged with the felony drug charge in October 2013. His attorney Blair Berk has said Green had consensual sex with the woman he gave ecstasy to during the July 2012 dinner. Superior Court Judge Mark Young sentenced the singer to three years of formal probation and 45 days of community service. ”
CeeLo’s statement was in response to the numerous Twitter users’ comments on his drug case.
After receiving tons of backlash, he deleted all of his tweets and deactivated his Twitter account.
Do you think CeeLo’s music career will suffer because of this?
