CeeLo Green: It’s Not Rape If the Victim Is Unconscious

By Jamilah King Sep 02, 2014

CeeLo Green decided to make a bad situation worse on Sunday when he took to Twitter to talk about his rape case. The singer pled no contest to supplying a woman with ecstacy; the victim claims that she doesn’t remember anything about her date with the singer except going out to dinner and then waking up naked in his bed. His lawyer insisted that the two had consensual sex, and rape charges weren’t filed due to lack of evidence. 

But on Sunday night, the singer tried and failed to make his case with the public. His tweets:

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 that anyone was raped."

He later apologized to his followers: "I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context … I’d never condone the harm of any women."

But the damage was done. The singer has since deleted his account.
