Following No Contest Plea, CeeLo Green Tweets 'Women Who Have Really Been Raped Remember'
After CeeLo Green pleaded no contest Friday to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles, the singer voiced his opinion over the matter online Sunday in a series of questionable Tweets.
In posts later deleted from his account but preserved elsewhere, the "Fuck You" singer and former The Voice coach tweeted, "Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!"
"If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent," he added, among other posts, engaging with fans over the issues of his felony case.
Later, Green deleted the tweets and admitted to doing so when asked, saying, "yes I did. I will not allow that negative energy to loiter on my time line u still got it so keep it! I'm deleting this too"
Monday, Green returned to Twitter with a cooler head, posting an apology that his comments were "taken so far out of context" and stating "I'd never condone the harm of any women."

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..— CeeLo Green (@CeeLoGreen) September 1, 2014
