AceShowbiz - Since being accused of running a sex cult and holding women against their will in his home, things haven't looked good for R. Kelly. Adding fuel to the fire, the singer took to Twitter on Tuesday, September 12 to share a photo, which was supposedly to promote new music but instead ended up being a creepy message.
In the now-deleted tweet, Kelly used a combination of odd graphics to advertise the new tunes. "All it takes is one 'yes' to change your life," so the tweet read. A photo below the tweet featured the word "no" written multiple times, with one "yes" among them.
While the post most likely referred to the new music, Twitter users couldn't help but relate it to Kelly's dark and twisted history with women, as well as his recent cult allegations. So it was no surprise that the ill-advised tweet instantly made people uncomfortable. "Hello @rkelly why did you delete your rapey tweet because doing rapes is very bad," a user sarcastically wrote.
"Somebody on R.Kelly's PR team deleted that 'yes' tweet I would say good job but that s**t should've never seen the light of day anyway," a user tweeted. Similarly, another snarked, "How exactly did you wake up and think this would be a good idea?"

Kelly has a long history of alleged sexual misconduct. He was accused of urinating on an underage girl in 2002 and illegally married late singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was just 15 years old. Most recently, he was believed to be keeping women against their will in his Atlanta and Chicago homes. The women were reportedly subjected to physical, mental and verbal abuse while under his supervision.
A rep for the 50-year-old singer quickly denied the claims, saying, "Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name."
