The singer tried to explain rape but failed miserably.

Green pleaded no contest to a felony charge of furnishing Ecstasy and was sentenced to three years’ probation. The charge stems from a 2012 incident where he was accused of slipping Ecstasy into a woman’s drink.

On Friday, CeeLo Green pleaded no contest to a felony count of providing Ecstasy to a woman in 2012. The unnamed woman accused the former The Voice judge of spiking her drink after they met at a sushi restaurant. The woman stated that the next thing she remembered was awakening in a bedroom naked, with Green in the room. She stated that she had recordings of Green apologizing and referring to the Ecstasy that was used.

According to the Review Journal, prosecutors in the case rejected a rape charge, but Green was hit with the felony drug charge instead. Green’s attorney, Blair Berk, stated that the sex was consensual but that Green did supply the woman with the drug.

A Los Angeles judge sentenced Green to three years’ formal probation and 45 days’ community service. In addition to the sentence, Green has to undergo drug and alcohol counseling. His no-contest plea cannot be used against him if a civil case is filed against him.

Now, you’d think, with his legal troubles somewhat behind him, Green would stay mum about the situation. Well, that wasn’t the case over the weekend.

Green took to his Twitter account and posted several questionable tweets in regards to rape. Those tweets, although quickly deleted, were, of course, screenshot. Because nothing is ever deleted on the Internet.

The singer tweeted, “People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”

“If someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent,” he added.

His series of tweets set the social media site on fire. Men and women put Green in his place and wondered what the hell his problem was:
