CeeLo Green recently pled “no contest” to charges stemming from a 2012 incident in which he allegedly slipped a 33-year-old woman ecstasy during a dinner in Los Angeles. The woman claims she woke up next to CeeLo naked with no recollection of their night, but CeeLo’s lawyer says they had ‘consensual relations’.
No sex charges were filed due to a lack of evidence, and his no contest plea allowed him to maintain his innocence. He did get sentenced to three years of probation and 45 days of community service for furnishing ecstasy.
For CeeLo, that wasn’t enough. He decided he needed to speak out publicly and attempt to clear his name. The only problem is that he ended up sounding much more like a rapist. He gave his thoughts on what qualifies as rape and what doesn’t.
“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously,” he tweeted. “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
It got worse. He continued to dig himself in to a deeper hole until he eventually deleted the entire rant. Check out a few of his other tweets below.
