“People who have been really raped REMEMBER!!”
That was the mind-bogglingly putrid tweet that came from Cee-Lo Green’s twitter today.
The ‘Forget You’ singer and judge on America’s version of The Voice took to twitter on a bizarre and defensive rant, regarding charges where he allegedly gave a woman ecstasy without her consent.
Green pleaded no contest to the accusations where the woman reportedly woke up next to Green in bed, unsure of the previous nights events.
The singer was sentenced to three years probation and 45 days of community service, but took to twitter to provide some bizarre responses in an attempt to defend himself.
Musictimes.com reported that Green’s tweets included: “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously” as well as “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!” Green then went on to post “So if I TRIED but did NOT succeed but the person said I did then what really happened?”
Green’s twitter has since been deleted, but not before BuzzFeed captured some of his tweets. You can view them here.
So for all those disputing on social media that rape culture doesn’t exist, or that everyone is equal? We beg you to reconsider.
