Cee Lo Green Apologizes For Borderline Homophobic Tweet

by at . Comments

First Tracy Morgan. Now Cee Lo Green?!

Not exactly, but The Voice coach is under considerable fire after a Tweet he wrote to a music critic, Andrea Swensson, following his June 16 show.

Swensson termed Cee Lo's concert "lackluster" and "gross," which the singer didn't really appreciate. He struck back at her with this tweet:

"I respect your criticism, but be fair! People enjoyed last night! I'm guessing you're gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well f--k you!"

Who? Me? Cee Lo? Homophobic?

Yeah. Probably not the best word choice. The "F--k You" singer attempted an apology on Twitter ... but it's more of a long-winded explanation.

He also seems confused as to what he's even apologizing for:

"Apologies gay community! What was homophobic about that? I was guessing he [was] gay which is fine but its nice to [know] what u think," he wrote.

He deleted it shortly after. Then he issued a longer comment:

The "Crazy" crooner said he had no clue what gender the critic was and that he was just being "outspoken" at the time he tweeted.

"She was very critical of me. At the time I didn't even know what gender the person was," he said. "I was being a little outspoken that night."

"I was being a little outrageous. I always expect people to assume that everything I do is part of my character and sense of humor. I assumed that whoever it was would assume that it was all in good fun."

"I most certainly am not harboring negative feelings toward the gay community. I don't have an opinion on people with different religious, sexual or political preferences. I'm one of the most liberal artists I think you will ever meet, and pride myself on that."

"Two of the remaining members on my team on The Voice are proud and outspokenly gay. We just did a team performance of 'Everyday People' and I picked that song specifically to highlight how we can get along even though we're so different."

For what it's worth, Swensson responded to say she was not offended.

Your a fucking piece of shit. Yeah, you're "right" to be bigoted, ignorant and hateful is being threatened. Good luck explaining to God how sanctimoniously judgemental you are. Especially, good luck explaining to God you're promoting hate in His name. Hopefully, you'll drop dead and have that opportunity really soon.

Fae No just a righteous person who is tired of a very small segment of society trying to shove upon the masses their bad choices and disrespect and lack of fear of God Their attempt to make it a crime to speak against the bad choices and immorality that make up their lives by redefining righteousness as homophobia The American construction guarenties people the right to express their believes Publicley yet the homosexual community wants to put sn end to my rights
Because if they don't succed they fear the righteous community will once again triumph and get laws reinstated prohibiting public displays of homosexuality as it had been for almost 300 years and still is in about $98% of the world

Jh- I'm hoping english isn't your first language because you are clearly illiterate. Instead of taking all that time to write about 18 paragraphs of bullshit you should go back to first grade and learn to spell and form a sentence. Best of luck.

I guess some people don't have keyboard and type o problems I guess some people think they have the right to rewrite the dictionary So to replace the word Righteousness With homophobia sorry you don't You see a righteous person recognises homosexuality as immoral and degenerative and fears not your criticism for a righteous persons rewards come not now but later when the unrightous are no longer apart of creation Perhaps one day your eyes will be opened. I hope so Untill then live your less happy or unhapppy life. Its your choice. God did not make you this way JH

Homophobia reigns supreme amongst the mud people.

Suprised that you don't understand that using the word "gay" to imply anything derogatory or insulting perpetuates ignorance and homophobia. Stonewall 101.
