Yahoo – Virtually everybody saw Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game back in April, but nobody received more flak for watching than R. Kelly, who posted a now-infamous photo of himself taking in the action on a tiny TV in a nondescript white room. Twitter was flooded with hilarious reactions, but now, it’s R. Kelly who has the jokes. About halfway through his two-hour set in Chicago last night, R. Kelly addressed the crowd about the photo and said that the criticism “got to him,” according to concert attendee Dan Garcia. It was at this point that event staff brought a brown leather recliner onto the catwalk and pointed it towards the 50-foot video screen on stage. Then, R. Kelly sat down and watched portions of Kobe’s final game, this time on a significantly larger screen than before. He then watched the “Jake from State Farm” commercial, and went to Netflix to enjoy a bit of the 1999 Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence movie Life. According to Garcia, “Other random highlights of the night included singing to fans that he is ‘sweaty than a mutha fucka’ for 15 minutes while he let fans wipe the sweat off him, a 10 minute conversation with a blimp drone robot named R-bot, and much more.”
Flex on em Kells! Stunt on these bitches! There’s really only 2 options when the entire internet makes fun of you for watching hoops on a 12 inch TV.
1) Just accept your fate and forever be known as the Tiny TV Guy for eternity
2) Stop your concert, sit in a recliner, re-watch the end of Kobe’s game, watch a Jake from State Farm commercial, and then a little Netflix and Chill while an entire arena of people who paid money to see you sing sit there with their dicks in their hands.
Thats where the road splits. Left and right. Seal your fate. R Kelly clearly chose wisely. Cant call him Tiny TV Guy after doing this. Technically he watched the end on the Kobe game on the biggest TV in the world. Sorry, Twitter. Sorry, internet. The joke is over. Pissing off like 25,000 people to get back at Twitter. He pees on people and generally doesnt really care about the people in the audience.
