Before tweeting an apology and deleting his Twitter, the former judge on 'The Voice' shared his view about rape, writing, 'People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!'

Cee-Lo Green deleted his Twitter account after writing some controversial comments about rape. On Friday, August 29, the former judge on "The Voice" pleaded no contest to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a dinner in 2012 and later made the comments in conversations with some of his followers.

A post which he later removed read, "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent." He also wrote, "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" After deleting the tweets, he told a fan, "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."

The "F**k You" singer wrote an apology on Monday before deleting his account. "Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context. 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 was your support that got me thru this to begin with. I'd never condone the harm of any women. Thank you," he said.

Green previously was sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to complete community service after pleading no contest to the ecstasy charge. A woman previously claimed that Green slipped some drugs into her drink and that she woke up the next day in the bed with no memories of what happened the night before. The star's lawyer, however, said that Green and the woman had consensual relations.
