GRETNA, La. (AP) — The Gretna Heritage Festival is saying “Forget You” to CeeLo Green after comments the performer made about rape.
A Friday statement from festival Chairman Ricky Templet says Green was dropped from October’s festival lineup because his comments break with the festival’s family environment.
Green was replaced with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
Green pleaded no contest last week to one felony count of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles. Following that, the former “Voice” coach posted a series of tweets, including one that read: “Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!” He tweeted an apology Monday.
TBS announced Wednesday it had decided earlier this summer against renewing Green’s reality show, “The Good Life,” for a second season. The Navy also canceled a Green performance.
