R. Kelly performed at the Soul Train Awards, closing the show on Sunday night and as usual bringing down the house.

But it appears the singer may have (finally?) worn out his welcome amongst a sizable portion of the public, judging by a flurry of online debate.

Kelly, of course, was charged and tried in Illinois back in the mid-2000s for crimes relating to sex with an underage girl.

In 2008, he was eventually found not guilty on all 14 counts in a jury trial at the end of a long legal battle, but it didn’t stop fans on social media from questioning his position as a public figure this weekend.

As for Sunday’s performance itself, Kelly wasn’t specifically controversial. See clips (below):

However, on Twitter, fans were divided on seeing the singer soar to new heights considering his history, with many standing strongly against Kelly’s career (below):

Meanwhile, others looked past Kelly’s shady past, and stayed right in line with the R&B star:

Wow.

Where do U stand on the R. Kelly debate?
