Cee Lo Green's TV show The Good Life axed following controversial rape comments
US cable channel TBS has cancelled the singer's unscripted show
The producer and rapper was forced to suspend his Twitter account yesterday after implying that a woman could only be raped if she was conscious.
He said: “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! So WITH implies consent,” adding: “People who really have been raped REMEMBER!!!”
Green’s unscripted series The Good Life has since been cancelled by TBS and will not be renewed for a second series.
However, a source told The Hollywood Reporter that the show has already been cancelled due to low ratings after its first series ended earlier this year.
The musician and former judge on The Voice US recently pleaded no contest to charges that he gave a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012.
The woman had claimed that she had woken up next to Green not knowing what had happened, but due to insufficient evidence no rape charges were filed. Green’s lawyer said they had “consensual relations”.
In an apology posted on Twitter, Green said: “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 through this to begin with.
“I’d never condone the harm of any women. Thank you.”
