Military Music Festival drops CeeLo Green


In another blow to his career, Green has just been dropped from the Navy sponsored Freedom LIVE concert organized by the Naval District Washington (NDW)’s portion of the military’s Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) department.

Last night the MWR announced, via their Facebook page, that Green would no longer be a part of the show that is being heldĀ at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in D.C.:

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 coordinated support, and where offenders are held appropriately accountable.

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. 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 CeeLo Green from the Freedom Live event on 20 September. Little Big Town, the main attraction for the event, will still perform as scheduled. We will announce as soon as possible a replacement opening act of the high quality that you expect and deserve.

Yeah, this isn’t gonna get better for CeeLo Green.

Bet he’ll think twice next time before he so idiotically speaks on controversial issues.
