Reality show with Cee Lo Green Axed after Rape Remarks
The Good Life, an unscripted reality show which made its debut in June, features Cee Lo Green as he goes about his daily life.
Now TBS says it’s axing the show about the 39-year-old singer and producer days after he effectively implied rape is only an offence it women are conscious at the time. He also apparently likened the crime to “a home burglary.”
He tweeted: “After a burglary there is broken glass. Where is your proof anyone was raped?”
Inevitably, the remarks sparked a pretty heavy backlash, and the posts on Twitter were later deleted. Green has also insisted the comments were taken “far out of context.”
In fact, they had been posted shortly after he pleaded no contest to spiking a woman’s drink with ecstasy back in 2012.
He was given three years’ probation and 360 hours of community service Friday after being charged with one felony count of furnishing a controlled substance.
Sources at TBS say the decision to cancel The Good Life was exclusively a ratings issue. But what do you think? Too much of a coincidence?
