Apparently, the personal legal problems of Cee Lo Green have led to the banning of the star from the Military Show. In fact, the star’s personal opinion on rape has led to much criticism.
Cee Lo Green definitely made a mistake when he made some comments on rape on his Twitter. The comments he shared on social media infuriated many people. Since that moment, it seems that the career of the famous singer has had a lot to suffer. Now, Cee Lo Green has been cut from the lineup of a performance at a DC navy base. The performance was scheduled to take place later this month.
Reports indicate that according to the organizers of the show, the Twitter comments made by Cee Lo Green are the ones to blame for his elimination from the show. Moreover, the decision was explained by the DC chapter of the military’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department in a Facebook comment.
“We seek a Department-wide culture of gender dignity and respect where sexual assault is completely eliminated and never tolerated, where sexual assault victims receive compassionate and coordinated support, and where offenders are held appropriately accountable,” the statement said.
The same statement added that one of the stars who were scheduled to perform at the show “recently posted comments on social media that we consider to (be) completely inconsistent with Navy core values…As a result, we have made the decision to pull CeeLo Green from the Freedom Live event on 20 September.”
Cee Lo Green has had some troubles lately with the law. Actually, the star had to plead no contest to possession charges. The charges were linked to a 2012 case in which the famous singer was accused of drugging a woman, who claimed that she woke up in his bed with absolutely no memories of what happened.
Linked to this case, Cee Lo Green posted a message on his Twitter. “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” the message said. “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! So WITH implies consent,” it added. Later, the singer apologized for the comments. “I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe,” a new tweet said.
