The fallout from Green's insensitive remarks looks set to continue for some time.

Cee Lo Green has been dropped by both the JBAB Freedom Live event and Louisiana's Gretna Heritage Festival, despite apologising for a series of tweets in which the 'Forget You' singer shared his controversial opinions on the nature of rape.

A statement released by the organisers of the Freedom Live show posted a message to their Facebook page, saying: "We seek a department-wide culture of gender dignity and respect where sexual assault is completely eliminated and never tolerated, where sexual assault victims receive compassionate and co-ordinated support, and where offenders are held appropriately accountable."

They continued: "Unfortunately, one of the performers we signed for the JBAB Freedom Live show on 20th September recently posted comments on social media that we consider to be completely inconsistent with Navy core values."

"Regardless of intent or context, the lack of sensitivity towards an issue that is one of the great challenges facing our Navy is unacceptable. As a result, we have made the decision to pull Cee Lo Green from the Freedom Live event."

The Gretna Heritage festival posted a similar message, saying that Green "does not represent the festival's wholesome family environment."

The singer's reality TV show 'The Good Life' has also been canned.

Green attempted to explain his tweets, saying that they were "not what I believe", but the fallout of the incident serves to crystallise the fact that the echoes of what you post online can have very far-reaching consequences.
