Singer R. Relly tried to promote his new CD on Twitter yesterday, but the publicity stunt turned into a nightmare.
In an effort to promote his CD "Black Panties," R. Kelly tweeted: "I want all my fans and everyone out there to know that this is REALLY me answering your questions, so fire away #AskRKelly #BlackPanties."
The singer apparently forgot about the negative publicity surrounding past allegations of child pornography and his 2008 trial. He was acquitted of all 14 counts, but his defense team made numerous bizarre claims, even comparing a witness to Satan, noted The New York Times.
Many Twitter users recalled the scandal and fired away, notes Salon.com.
