Singer Cee Lo Green has discussed a court case in which he pleaded no contest to supplying ecstasy to a woman in a series of tweets, including one that read: “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”

The woman claimed she had no memory of the period between dining with Green at a sushi restaurant in 2012 and waking up naked in the singer’s bed. No rape charges were filed due to lack of evidence. He was sentenced to 3 years probation and 45 days community service this past Friday.
In the tweets, which were subsequently deleted, though preserved by a user of the site in screengrabs, Green added: “If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent”. On Sunday, Green aired his views on sexual assault while discussing the case on Twitter. Other tweets included: “When someone brakes on a home there is broken glass where is your plausible proof that anyone was raped.”
