TBS has pulled the plugs on Cee Lo Green’s no-script TV show The Good Life after the completion of its six-episode initial run. The show, which focused on Green’s touring, recording and home life, has been pulled in the wake of controversy surrounding Green, who published a series of tweets about the nature of rape this weekend.
In the now-deleted series of tweets, Green seemed to imply that sexual assault could only happen to someone who was conscious. “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously!” he wrote. “So WITH implies consent. People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
One would think Green would know better, having faced sexual assault charges in 2012 and pleading no contest in August to a felony charge of furnishing ecstasy to a young woman.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the story, and also said their source claimed the series had been cancelled solely as a result of its ratings performance.
