The concert, called Freedom LIVE, is scheduled to take place Sept. 20. Its promoters posted notice of Green's removal on the event's Facebook page on Friday.
"Unfortunately, one of the performers we signed for the JBAB Freedom Live show on 20 September recently posted comments on social media that we consider to completely inconsistent with Navy core values….As a result, we have made the decision to pull CeeLo Green from the Freedom Live event on 20 September."
After pleading no contest to charges of furnishing ecstasy to an acquaintance, and making a series of inflammatory comments what constitutes rape on Twitter, claiming that "women who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" and "if someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH implies consent."
