CeeLo Green’s TV Show ‘The Good Life’ Canceled Amid Rape Comments

CeeLo can say goodbye to "The Good Life."

The singer’s reality TV show has been canceled, according to Entertainment Weekly:

A network insider said the show was canceled was due to poor ratings. Before news of the cancellation came out, however, a petition from women’s rights group UltraViolet had called for TBS to get rid of the show in light of Green’s tweets.

The Good Life had a short run earlier this summer and focused on Green’s reunion with his hip-hop group Goodie Mob. The TBS webpage for the show has been replaced by an error message.

The cancellation comes amid backlash after the singer tried to defend rape. Last week, he pleaded guilty to giving a woman ecstasy that she claims led her to black out for hours before waking up naked in CeeLo’s bed. There wasn’t enough evidence to bring rape charges, but the singer foolishly tried to argue on Twitter over the weekend that an unconscious woman can’t be raped.
