Cee Lo Green Apologizes: ‘Rape Tweets Taken So Far Out Of Context’

Cee Lo Green says his comments, implying that being passed out grants consent, have been taken "so far out of context".

"Let me 1st praise God for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context. 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," Green shared in his version of a public apology via social media Tuesday.

Green's apology follows TBS' decision to cancel his reality series, "The Good Life," and a petition in the wake of thoughts he shared regarding a case where he was accused of giving a woman ecstasy. His attorney claims a sexual encounter that followed, in his hotel room, was consensual. Green, facing criticism via Twitter, attempted to clarify just what consensual meant to him.

"If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! So WITH implies consent," Green wrote in his initial tweets. "When someone brakes on a home there is broken glass. Where is your plausible proof anyone was raped."

He went on to say "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!"

Adding more insult to injury, Green took to Twitter on Wednesday to further (fuel the fire) with another apology.

"I truly and deeply apologize for the comments attributed to me on Twitter. Those comments were idiotic, untrue and not what I believe," said Green.

As previously reported, Green parted ways with "The Voice" last year, following several seasons as a coach. He has plead no contest to charges of furnishing a woman with ecstasy in 2012 and has been sentenced to three years probation, 360 hours of community service, drug or alcohol abuse classes and has been required to register as a controlled substance offender. He is due in court March 2 for a progress hearing.
