R. Kelly is Bill Cosby’s Biggest Supporter; Cosby Screams, No!
Say what you want about rapper/artist R. Kelly – he’s a man who has learned to put the fun in dysfunction. In a recent GQ interview, Kelly opened up about his traumatic childhood and his misunderstood persona today. As a survivor of molestation at the hands of a family member, Kelly was able to turn this negative into a positive.
In 2003, when Kelly was indicted on child pornography charges, that highly tuned sense of denial helped him through the scores of accusations from underage females leading to his 2008 acquittal. So why is Kelly one of the very few Cosby supporters? Kelly knows what it’s like to be “wrongly” accused.
“If God showed me that they were telling the truth, I would say that’s wrong. I don’t care if it was a zillion years ago. But God would have to do that, because God is the only one can show me that. No man can tell me that. No woman can tell me that.”
Kelly did not elaborate if God speaks to him on other subjects besides Cosby or if Cosby’s confession would suffice. His main beef with the accusers is the length of time they waited to report the assault.
“And when you wait 70 years, 50 years, 40 years, to say something that simple, it’s strange. You know why I say that is because it happened to me, and it wasn’t true.”
When asked to elaborate on the “simple” act of accusing a famous celebrity of drugged-out rape, Kelly’s quote showed the depths of his deep, deep, deep soul.
“When a person is found not guilty, they’re found not guilty.”
That quote will surely go down in history next to Yogi Berra’s, “It ain’t over, till it’s over.”
Last seen, Cosby was headed to the courthouse, assisted by his lawyers, tripping over his absolute disgrace.
