Gretna Heritage Fest to CeeLo Green: Forget you

CeeLo Green, your presence is not required in Gretna. - ATLANTIC RECORDS
  • CeeLo Green, your presence is not required in Gretna.

Singer CeeLo Green may have apologized for his wildly controversial tweets about rape, but the furor hasn't gone away; TBS just canceled his reality show, his gigs are getting shut down, and today Billboard ran a helpful article titled "How CeeLo Green’s Career Can Be Saved." 

Now the good people of the West Bank have added to CeeLo's troubles by canceling his planned headline appearance at this year's Gretna Music Festival

In a press release citing Gretna Fest as a "family friendly oriented event," the board wrote, "In recent controversial comments made by Ceelo Green that have have been made surrounding recent incidents involving Mr. Green, they are not acceptable by artist that are scheduled to perform at the Gretna Heritage Festival."

Green's replacement? Proving that Gretnaites truly love rock and roll: Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

Below the cut: the letter from Gretna Fest. And we don't need to imagine CeeLo's response.
