R. Kelly gets roasted online.
R. Kelly has had sex abuse allegations thrust upon him today and the Internet wasn't having any of it.
Social media users were quick to voice their displeasure over what has supposedly gone down. According to an earlier report, the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer has been holding young girls in a cult and has resorted to sexually abusive tactics to keep them from leaving. As a large portion of the Internet put it: who's still making excuses for him?
