After Kanye and Bieber, I hate to rag on a third black guy in a row, but Jesus Christ, CeeLo. Barely 72 hours after pleading no contest to slipping ecstasy into a woman’s drink in 2012, he apparently thought it’d be a great idea to go on Twitter and say rape doesn’t count if the person is unconscious. Yup. Via Buzzfeed who screencapped the fuck out of this before it was deleted:
- if someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH implies consent
- women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!
Fortunately, he stopped after that and didn’t dig himself even deeper. — Haha! Just kidding. He totally did:
when someone brakes on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof anyone was raped
Oh. OH GOD. Well, at least he didn’t say he tried to fuck an unconscious woman, but it didn’t work out, so technically that makes him innocent:
so if I TRIED but did NOT succeed but the person said I DID then what really happened?
Needless to say CeeLo eventually deleted his entire Twitter account before restoring it with all this shit deleted. However, he’s sorry for trying to start a “healthy exchange” bust first would like to thank God for helping him duck “rape” charges. Clearly, He saw the woman was asleep the whole time, so let’s call this one a Mulligan:
“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.”
He then added, “But is it really HARM if I give you KNOCKOUT GAS and you FORGET the whole thing? You know what? Let’s put a PIN in that. We’ll come back to that.”
