R. Kelly Is Trending On Twitter After Bill Cosby's Guilty Verdict

Tick...tock...

Published April 26, 2018

Not far behind Bill Cosby, the now-convicted, defamed silver-screen icon, on Twitter’s celebrity-saturated trending topics list comes the name of another industry luminary facing a stream of sexual assault allegations: R. Kelly.

On Thursday, Cosby was found guilty on all charges after a jury ruled against him in a retrial for three counts of aggravated indecent assault brought on by one of his many accusers, Andrea Constand. Immediately, the 80-year-old’s name shot to the top of the internet’s grapevine as some folks cheered in favor of the conviction while others denounced it. Only with the exception of a few, they all seem to be able to agree on Kelly’s guilty status though—conviction or not.

Now that Cosby has been found guilty on counts from at least one of his accusers, watch the internet call next on the Chicago-bred R&B singer below:
