Yesterday (September 1), as Billboard reports, Green deleted two tweets prior to removing his whole account in which he is alleged to have written: "People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!" and "If someone is passed out they're not even WITH you consciously! so WITH Implies consent."
The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society.

We've made it to 50 episodes of the AbsolutePunk Podcast! Just want to take a moment to thank Drew Beringer, Thomas Nassiff, and all the guests we've had on the first fifty episodes of this thing. Been a pretty wild ride and I think these past 15 or so have been where we really are hitting our stride. Everything seems to flow really well and each week of recording has been a whole lot of fun.
