The former 'The Voice' coach returned to Twitter and apologized in a post which read, 'I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter.'
Cee-Lo Green returned to Twitter after his account was restored on Tuesday night, September 2. He then posted an apology regarding the controversial comments about rape which he previously tweeted. He shared, "I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe."
Cee-Lo previously deleted his account after receiving backlash for controversial tweets. He wrote, "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent. People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" Before deleting his account, he shared his final tweet which read, "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."
Recently, TBS decided to cancel Cee-Lo's show "CeeLo Green's the Good Life". While some speculated the decision was made because of Cee-Lo's felony case, sources told NBC News that the network decided to cancel the series due to "poor ratings."
On August 29, Cee-Lo avoided jail time after pleading no contest to drug charges. The 39-year-old rapper was sentenced to three years of formal probation and ordered to complete 360 hours of community service and 52 Alcoholics Anonymous/Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
