CeeLo Green apologizes for rape tweets as TBS cancels his reality show, The Good Life

CeeLo Green The Good Life Canceled

TBS stood by CeeLo Green when the singer was facing felony charges for furnishing ecstasy, but appeared to say “enough is enough” in light of CeeLo’s rape comments: The network canceled CeeLo’s young reality show, The Good Life, on Tuesday.

The day before, shortly after pleading no contest to the drug charges, CeeLo tried to defend himself against related date-rape accusations by taking to Twitter.

“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously,” he said in response to three Twitter users. He continued, “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”

He deleted whole account on Monday night, but restored it on Tuesday to post a public apology… That really reeks of insincerity. What’s up with the “comments attributed to me on Twitter” line?

Either way, CeeLo’s apology came too late — both for TBS and many others.

A network insider told Entertainment Weekly CeeLo’s show, which premiered on June 23, was axed due to poor ratings. Even though the ratings were truly low, the drastic measures TBS took by immediately deleting every trace of The Good Life from its website indicates more factors were at play.
