CeeLo Green’s dumbass Twitter comments about rape may not only have cost him some fans but it also cost him a television show.
According to Variety, TBS announced that they have cancelled his reality show The Good Life thanks to the backlash he created with his Twitter comments that have since been deleted from his account. A petition started circling to pressure TBS to cancel the show once the Internet got wind of Green’s bizarre comments following his “no contest” sentence to charges that he drugged a woman with ecstasy in a Los Angeles county courtroom.
A source from the network told the newspaper that plans were already in place to cancel Green’s show but news of his Twitter comments assured its chances that it would not be returning for a second season. Of course, don’t expect Green to be picked up by another show any time soon. He may have half-heartedly apologized for his comments but he’s pretty much a damaged media property until all of this gets smoothed over assuming that he doesn’t open his big mouth again–or tell us what he really thinks about sexual assault.
In this case, Green was speaking out against the charges that could have landed him jail time if he decided to fight the charge instead of pleading no contest. Come to think of it, watching a rock star try to navigate and survive in jail would have made for a way more interesting reality show than the one he had on TBS.
