Some people have so much confidence it is scary, but sometimes it doesn’t serve them very well! This past week, R. Kelly dropped an album, ‘Black Panties’, and I have zero opinion about it because I can’t stand the guy (and his music). But to promote his album, Kelly went on Twitter, and I don’t know if it was his idea or a suggestion coming from his PR or manager, but whoever gave him this advice made a huge mistake. Let’s just say that this Twitter promotion, this ‘let’s-talk-to-my-fans didn’t go very well!
R. Kelly told fans to ask him questions using the hashtag #AskRKelly, and man did they! Actually they didn’t ask many questions but rather serve him their opinion about his awesome reputation. It was crude, bold, merciless, and to be honest, the guy deserves it! Here are a few of these spot-on tweets from ‘fans’:
‘is your song “If I could turn back the hands of time” what you wish for when you meet a women and she tells you she’s over 18? #AskRKelly’
‘How does it feel being banned from PTA meetings? #AskRKelly
@Rkelly for $1,000,000, which of these things CAN’T you piss on? 1) Toilet 2) Urinal 3) 14 year old girls #AskRKelly’
‘At what age did you start pissing on people #AskRKelly’
You get the picture! And there were many others! That was a gigantesque bad PR move, a Twitter disaster, and he was roasted to the bone! Was this the result of his oversized ego, of his inflated confidence due to his new collaboration with Lady Gaga? How didn’t he realize that people haven’t forgotten about his sordid actions with minors? He has the reputation of a pervert and he cultivates it. I don’t know, but reading all these tweets has something very satisfying, ha! the power of social medias! The R&B star judged by common people, who, of course, would never say a tenth of what they have said on Twitter if they would meet him in person tomorrow at their local Starbucks.
