However, many people noted Ceelo Green made a controversial and deplorable statement on rape in 2014:
— Marlow Stern (@MarlowNYC) February 13, 2017
Green was not charged with rape after prosecutors found the sex to be consensual, and soon after pleading no contest, the singer defended himself on Twitter, where he implied that it’s not rape if the person is “passed out.” “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously, so WITH implies consent,” Green tweeted. “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
However, Green later deleted said tweet and apologised:
“In those instances I do realize I’m an artist, that I’m flawed; and sometimes, you know, you don’t think. I was most certainly not thinking, not considering whom I might offend. And to those many people, however many or however few, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize again.” CeeLo Green to the Sunday Times NME
