Although CeeLo Green apologized on Tuesday for the series of tweets Sunday comparing rape and consensual sex that sparked a massive wave outrage across the Twittersphere, the blowback over his remarks continues. The latest: TBS has canceled his reality show, "The Good Life," according to The Hollywood Reporter.


The network moved to act after Green's social media meltdown prompted the women's advocacy group UltraViolet to launch an online petition calling for TBS and parent company Time Warner to pull the plug on the series instead of "giving him a huge public platform." The petition concluded by saying, "They’ve got to drop him, now."


The singer was sentenced to three years' probation on Friday after pleading no contest to charges that he plied a woman with drugs and took her to a hotel room, Yahoo Music reports.
