TBS has canceled Cee Lo Green's The Good Life after one season.
The unscripted reality series debuted in June, and followed the 39-year-old singer and producer in his daily life. The cancellation comes days after Green compared rape to a home burglary and implied women can only be raped if they are conscious when it happens.
"When someone brakes on a home there is broken glass," he wrote on Twitter. "Where is your plausible proof anyone was raped?"
"Women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" he declared. "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH implies consent."
Green faced heavy backlash for his remarks, and subsequently deleted the tweets. The singer posted the comments shortly after he pleaded no contest to slipping ecstasy into a woman's drink in 2012. Green was sentenced to three years of probation and 360 hours of community service on Friday after being charged with one felony count of furnishing a controlled substance.
Women's rights group UltraViolet petitioned TBS to cancel The Good Life after Green's remarks, but sources say the cancellation was solely based on its ratings performance.
