You can slander R Kelly all you want as a person but his music cannot be touched. That's where I draw the line— KING (@originalmansa) August 8, 2016
We know R Kelly is gross but it makes all of us problematic, we're not grossed out enough to stop listening to his music because it's good.— Nikki Hayes (@NikkiHayes1) August 8, 2016
can't make myself not like R Kelly's older music, no matter how reprehensible he is, but it is getting harder to absorb the newer stuff— Wayne Blunder (@HaroldBingo) August 8, 2016
R Kelly been a perv and a creeper...I stopped buying his music after that quickie Aaliyah marriage— TheAverageBlackMan™ (@TheAvgBlackMan) August 8, 2016
