R&B singer R. Kelly just can’t win in 2017. The veteran crooner has social media bugging out over a head-scratching and creepy since-deleted Twitter post.

Kells initially sparked attention after putting up an alleged new music promo tweet.

The Twitter post ultimately vanished into thin air after Kells received ample backlash.

If you can’t tell from us having to screenshot Kelly’s tweet, he got absolutely demolished on social media for the post, leading him to delete the message and run away with his tail between his legs. At this point, no one really needs a huge excuse to go in on the singer, so people let the insults fly online after he dropped the insensitive message. (Complex)

Recently, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa blasted Kells over a growing sex cult scandal.
