BayFest music festival in Mobile, Alabama, has canceled CeeLo Green’s appearance following his online comments about assault.
BayFest CEO Bobby Bostwick issued a statement on September 8 saying CeeLo Green’s performance scheduled for October 4 is being called off.
The statement says recent comments attributed to CeeLo Green conflict with the beliefs and conscience of the music festival.
CeeLo Green recently pleaded no contest to a felony charge of furnishing ecstasy to a woman during a 2012 dinner in Los Angeles.
After the plea, CeeLo Green posted a series of tweets, including one that read: “Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
The singer later tweeted an apology.
Two other concerts have dropped CeeLo Green, and TBS is canceling the second season of Green’s reality show.
