Cee Lo Green is facing the music after his “voice” got him into a bit of trouble on Twitter.
Green performed along side Rihanna at a recent concert in Minnesota, and after a critic gave him a not so positive review, he responded on the social networking site, claiming that the critic must be “gay.”
“I respect your criticism, but be fair! People enjoyed last night! I’m guessing you’re gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well, f*** you!”
Green faced some homophobic remarks after his Tweet, and has since responded, claiming he has no hard feelings towards the gay community, but shouldn’t have to apologize.
“At the time I didn’t even know what gender the person was. I was being a little outspoken that night, 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 it was all in good fun. It wasn’t taken so well, apparently.
“(I shouldn’t) have to apologize for speaking my mind or defending my performance. I most certainly am not harboring any sort of negative feeling toward the gay community. I’m one of the most liberal artists that I think you will ever meet, and I pride myself on that. Two of the remaining members that I have on my team on (U.S. talent show) The Voice are proud and outspokenly gay.
You have to believe Cee Lo here, that he has no negative feelings towards the gay community, however he should have used a better choice of words!
