(Newser) – Just one month after a coach on the TV show The Voice got into trouble for an anti-gay comment on Twitter, fellow Voice coach Cee Lo Green followed suit, reports the New York Daily News. After his show was criticized by a (female) music editor, Green on Friday tweeted: "I'm guessing you're gay? And my masculinity offended you? Well, f*** you!" He explained his misstep over the weekend to Us Weekly: "I was being a little outspoken that night, a little outrageous. I always expect people to assume that everything I do is part of my character and sense of humor. I assumed that whoever it was would assume it was all in good fun. It wasn't taken so well, apparently."

Despite the comments, Green insists he is not anti-gay: "I'm one of the most liberal artists that I think you will ever meet. If I could take it all back, I would. I was not being serious. I just wanted to defend our performance." (Read more Cee Lo Green stories.)
