Not so Good.
Cee Lo Green's new show, The Good Life, has been canceled by TBS and Time Warner due to the singer's rape comments. Yeah, not cool. At all. Cee Lo sank pretty low with his comments.
According to Us Weekly, Green had tweeted (and deleted): "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! So WITH implies consent... when someone brakes on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof anyone was raped... women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" so if I TRIED but did NOT succeed but the person said I DID then what really happened?"
The comments were ripped by fans and UltraViolet, an online women's group, started a petition to get the network to cancel the show since rape comments are never okay. They succeeded.
Green tweeted apologies for his rape comments, posting: "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 was given three years probation last week after pleading no contest to a felony count of giving a woman ecstasy back in 2012.
What is your take on this Cee Lo sitch? Is the apology sincere?
