TBS Cancels CeeLo’s Show ‘The Good Life’ On The Heels Of Controversial Rape Comments
He may have been able to avoid serving time behind bars after a woman accused him of date rape, but Goodie Mob singer CeeLo Green is still in hot water. Yesterday, we told you that he resorted to temporarily deleting his Twitter account after he put his foot in his mouth, by making some disturbing comments about rape. Now, it’s being reported that the 40-year-old’s TBS series, “The Good Life,” has been canceled.
The semi-scripted series first premiered on the network in June and ran for six weeks, concluding in July. It documented Cee reuniting with his Goodie Mob group members as they worked on putting together a new album 14 years after their last release. According to Deadline, the cancellation came on the heels of Cee’s Twitter controversy; however, it’s unclear if the show was axed because of his comments. Interestingly, there was a petition floating around urging TBS and Time Warner to pull the plug on the series over the tweets.
“Grammy-winning artist CeeLo Green just let loose a series of tweets claiming that rape isn’t rape if the victim is unconscious,” the petition reads. “What’s worse is that his tweets aren’t out of the blue—he recently pled no contest to drugging a woman who later woke up naked in his bed, with no memory of what happened.
Yet despite this criminal act, and these incredibly dangerous tweets, major network TBS and its parent company Time Warner are still giving him a huge public platform in a reality TV show that recently premiered. They’ve got to drop him, now.”
Cee has yet to publicly address the cancellation.
