R. Kelly is apologizing this morning after making fun of an autistic man.
While outside a Hollywood night club, mega fan Lenny Felix spotted the Pied Piper and proceeded to pronounce his admiration for the star. But somewhere along the way, Kels not only offended the fan, but proceeded to suggest he was on perocet.
During the exchange, Kels tried to get Lenny to sing “I Believe I Can Fly.” When he did, the singer fired back, “I believe you are high, I believe that you’re touching the sky, smoking on that percocet.” Oops. Not a good move.
After being blasted for mocking Felix, the singer took to social media to apologize. “Now people wanna say I’m making fun of people with autism, totally not true,” he said in a video.
The singer continued, “A guy coming up to me like a fan, doesn’t seem like he had autism at all. I apologize to him if he did. He appeared to drunk to me and singing my songs. Security had to get him off of me because he got too close.”
He continued, “I can’t do anything without people saying anything negative. It’s too much”
Kels added, “Let me do my work. It’s obvious people trying to blackball me — I don’t tell god about my problems, I tell my problem about my god.”
Speaking of problems, the Chicago native was recently accused of holding women in against their will inside his Atlanta home.
