R. Kelly‘s interview with Gayle King is being memed to a bump and grind hell. While the circumstances are disturbing, people are mocking the indignant attitude from Kelly and trying to turn himself into a victim. The 52-year-old is facing 70 years in prison after being indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse on Feb. 22.

In case you missed it, Kelly offered implausible answers when he was questioned about his past with underage girls, like his illegal marriage to then-15-year-old singer Aaliyah. See the marriage certificate below:
“I beat my case,” he cried to King in reference to his 2008 acquittal on child porn charges. “When you beat something, you beat it. You can’t double-jeopardy me like that. You can’t. It’s not fair. It’s not fair to nobody!”
The charges Kelly is facing in 2019 are different from then the 2008 charges, which was just on child pornography. Nonetheless, the “Feelin’ On Yo Booty” singer maintains his innocence.
“Not true,” Kelly said when King asked him about “the other cases where women have come forward and said, ‘R. Kelly had sex with me when I was under the age of 18. R. Kelly was abusive to me emotionally and physically and verbally. R. Kelly took me in a black room where unspeakable things happened.’ This is what they’re saying about you.”
Kelly got extremely emotional, saying, “Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. But just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through. … Quit playing! I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me! I’m fighting for my f*cking life!”
Watch a clip below:
The latest charges against Kelly stem from attorney Michael Avenatti giving a pair of purported child porn videos that featured the singer. Avenatti said he was hired last April in connection to multiple allegations of Kelly sexually assaulting minors. He claimed to have videotaped evidence, which, despite their similarities, were apparently not the same video footage that got Kelly indicted in 2002 — and acquitted in 2008 — for child porn.
Increased interest in seeing Kelly charged for his alleged crimes came at the beginning of the year when the bombshell docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” aired with several women accusing him of sexually abusing them when they were underage.
