    Default CeeLo Green's Show "The Good Life" canceled after rape tweet controversy

    Cee Lo Green is not living the good life.

    The singer’s TBS series “The Good Life” was canceled Tuesday after one season, according to Deadline. The site adds that the network has already removed the show from its website.

    The news comes on the heels of Green’s Twitter outburst Sunday, in which he issued a series of tweets about rape and consent.

    “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” he tweeted.

    The former “Voice” judge deleted the tweets, then temporarily deleted his Twitter account before re-activating it Tuesday.

    The tweets stemmed from Green’s court appearance Friday, in which he pleaded no contest to slipping ecstasy to a woman in 2012. The “F--- You” singer took to Twitter to defend himself, but ended up embroiled in controversy.

    “The Good Life” focused on Green reuniting with his former group Goodie Mob as they worked on their first new album in 14 years. The semi-unscripted series premiered June 23, and ran for six weeks before concluding at the end of July.

    "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" and "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent."

    IDIOT!!!

    I've always been creeped out over this guy, especially when he'd get all swarmy over the female singers (especially the young ones) when he was judging The Voice. He has no remorse for drugging a girl and raping her. He got the rape charge against him dropped and plead no contest to drug possession. I'm sure there was a payoff.

    This guy is a jerk, just like Frankie. Cee Lo acted on it whereas Frankie talked about it but both think it's ok to rape a drunk/drugged woman. One gets fired, the other is still on the show. What's wrong with this picture? Will CBS wait until someone actually acts on Frankie's words, then uses the excuse that they thought a drunk woman didn't say no?
