Green admitted and sort of non-apologized on Monday for his outburst, before deleting these tweets and his account altogether (his account is now reinstated, with zero real talk — mostly just promo). The highlights of his apology tweets read as follows:
Green would be hard-pressed to find an ally at the moment, but I can sense the moment will pass. He’s been quickly vilified, far more than he was when the allegations of date rape first hit back in 2012. Of course he deserves the backlash; it’s just that we could have shown a little more of it when his case first made headlines. My fear is that we’ll forget in a year’s time: CeeLo will be back on our TVs, and he’ll release a “Fuck You” follow-up that’ll top the charts. Be it Woody Allen or R. Kelly or Rick Ross, we forget too easily when it comes to the questionable morals — and allegedly vile behaviors — of beloved cultural figures.
