John Singleton Defends R. Kelly and Twitter Roasts Him to Hell

This probably wasn't the best idea.

Published July 24, 2017

After news broke that R. Kelly was leading a "sex cult" of young women behind closed doors, many took to social media to express their disgust with his alleged actions, but one person is coming forward to show that he has the R&B singer's back: director John Singleton.

Speaking with TMZ, Singleton explained that he sees nothing wrong with the "Bump N' Grind" singer's alleged situation as the women reported to be living with him are grown and are able to make adult decisions.

"No, I don't think he's misunderstood. He has a bunch of girlfriends. A lot of people have a bunch of girlfriends," he said. "The women that he's with are adult women and they made the decisions to be with him and they know what they're getting into, so I don't see what the controversy is really about."

When asked if he deserves the "[Bill] Cosby treatment" for what he's allegedly done, the famed filmmaker added, "No, not at all. That's a whole different situation."

Take a look, below:
