The proven sexual predator and R&B crooner posted the tour’s flyer to his Instagram account for fans, revealing the three locations in his caption. “New Tour Alert,” Kelly wrote. “Australia | New Zealand | Sri Lanka see y’all soon!” The post racked up to at least 32,000 likes from what’s left of Kelly’s supporters thereafter, including the salutations of Memphis rapper Memphitz, who wished blessings to “King Kelz,” as he dubbed him. It goes without saying that the rest of the internet didn’t feel that way, however.
