We told you late last week that singer CeeLo Green struck a plea deal in a case where a woman he was seeing accused him of rape back in 2012. If you’ll recall, the woman said Green took her to a restaurant in Cali and after she had a drink, she didn’t remember anything after that. She woke up without her clothing on with Green, and left his side immediately to report the situation to authorities. She also did a pretext call where the LAPD recorded a conversation she had with the singer, where he apologized for giving her ecstasy. However, Green denied allegations of sexual assault, and his lawyer argued that they had consensual sex that night.
The charge of rape was dropped because of a lack of evidence, but Green struck that plea deal for giving the unnamed woman ecstasy (a drug charge). He admitted to “voluntary sharing” and was given three years probation, as well as 360 hours of community service and was ordered to attend 52 Narcotics Anonymous meetings with a therapist.
After all that, you would think Green would do better, but alas, he put his foot in his mouth just this past weekend by choosing to discuss the case on Twitter.
According to BuzzFeed, Green put out a series of Tweets that he’s now regretting. Here’s what he had to say in an attempt to define rape…
“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously.”
“People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
He also went on to say, “When someone brakes[sic] on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof that anyone was raped.”
Someone accused Green of admitting to the crime because he took the plea deal, but he said he wasn’t admitting guilt.
After going back and forth with Twitter users, Green realized he made a big mistake and decided to apologize.
“Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & 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.”
Green ended up deleting his Twitter account, probably at the behest of his PR team who is somewhere currently trying to pick up the pieces from this catastrophe…
