Pop star and The Voice coach Cee Lo Green posted a Tweet to a music critic and it has attracted some attention and has been labeled as "anti-gay." Green, however, is defending his Tweet and says it was not homophobic.
The Tweet read as follows: "@gimme_noise I respect your criticism but be fair! People enjoyed last night! I'm guessing ur gay? and my masculinity offended u? well f--k U!"
Green hit Twitter on Friday to address those who suggested he is anti-gay. "Apologies gay community!" Green tweeted. "What was homophobic about that? I said I was guessing he [was] gay which is fine but its nice to [know] what u think of me."
Do you think celebrities are getting into trouble because of Twitter? Is it TMI? Is it causing celebs to be misread and misinterpreted?
