After pleading no contest to giving a woman ecstasy, the singer and former reality competition judge stepped away from Twitter after posting some pretty controversial statements regarding rape..
Yesterday (September 1), as Billboard reports, Green deleted two tweets prior to removing his whole account in which he is alleged to have written: “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” and “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent.” The Gnarls Barkley singer is then alleged to have gone on to tweet: “Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context.” He reportedly added: “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.” (NME.com)
