Cee Lo Green Dropped From Music Festivals After Rape Tweets

  • Music festivals in Louisiana and Washington, D.C. have dropped Cee Lo Green following his gross tweets that “people who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” Green pleaded no contest to charges that he had slipped Ecstasy into a woman’s drink and allegedly raped her; he maintains it was consensual sex. He also deleted the tweets, presumably after a publicist called him screaming. [The Grio; BuzzFeed]
