Singer CeeLo Green's reality show was cancelled one day after he deleted his Twitter account following a Sunday rant detailing his convoluted definition of rape – only 48 hours after pleading no contest to drugging a woman in 2012.

The former Gnarls Barkley front man claimed on the social network that having sex with someone without their permission is only rape if they are conscious and able to say no, according to grabs provided by the Daily Dot.

The eye-opening rant caught the attention of TBS executives Tuesday. They cancelled his reality show "The Good Life," according to The Wrap.

Green's tweets came only two days after he pleaded no contest to the 2012 incident, in which the singer is accused of slipping ecstasy into a woman's drink the night before she woke up in his bed claiming she had no idea what happened, according to reports.

Green's lawyer insisted throughout the trial that the pair had consensual sex. The controversial lyricist was not charged with sexual assault and instead received only a sentence of three years probation and 45 days of community service.

Despite his very apparent good fortune, Green's stunning lack of remorse shined through in a trio of tweets.

His Twitter account then mysteriously disappeared from the Internet ether. CeeLo suprisingly did not claim he was hacked and instead offered a feeble apology, according to BuzzFeed.

"Let me 1st praise god for exoneration fairness & freedom! Secondly I sincerely apologize for my comments being taken so far out of context," he wrote.

"I only intended on a healthy exchange to help heal those who love me from the pain I had already caused from this," he continued. "Please forgive me as it was your support that got me thru this to begin with.

"I'd never condone the harm of any women. Thank you."

Green has had a rough year, enduring ridicule on stage and hoisting middle fingers at hockey fans while he performed during an intermission at an Islanders versus Rangers hockey game in Yankee Stadium, but his Twitter defense was a new low.

He had more than two-million Twitter followers prior to the rant, he's lost about a third of them and no longer stars in a television show.
