Cee Lo Makes Flagrant "Rape" Comments
I think what was probably intended was the fact this woman stated she didn't remember anything from the night before yet still accused Ceelo of rape. E.g. rape is an act of violent sexual coercion and to accuse him of this without remembering WHAT happened is bogus.
But these remarks have been taken out of context, and I think to a degree rightly so, because he accidentally implied that if you drug a girl into unconsciousness, or the like, then it's no longer rape. Really DUMB of Ceelo not to think ahead a bit. I'm sure he didn't mean that at all, but with this much at stake he's cruisin' for a bruisin' here.
All that being said he apparently did put ecstacy into a girl's drink without her knowledge.. which is drugging someone potentially into a more "compliant" state. Not something I would EVER do or allow from anyone around me, and he definitely deserves any sort of consequences that comes of this. But to try to automatically categorize this as rape is going way too far. The prosecutors made the right decision in not pursuing this.
Agree with everything you said.
Celebrities really need to stop using technology and social media as these sort of platforms to get their opinions out. Back in the old days, you would hear stories second hand about how some professional players or celebs were fucking dicks and what not. Now, in 2014 they make it very blatantly obvious. Instead of saying absurd shit like this in front of a person they're addressing millions of people. Of course some are bound to get offended.
Also, see: the celebrity nudes being leaked right now. The context is a little different as they were hacked but the fact still remains that they know they are celebrities and are still willing to store these pictures on their devices.
Dude if anyone ever hacked my phone...
Honestly I think he was just smoking weed and his "logic" got away from him.
The whole WITH distinction he makes sounds like some high ass shit, for sure.
I'm not sure the exact circumstances but popping drugs in a girl's drink, whether they're the "date rape" kind or not is NOT acceptable.
