'Fast and Furious' fame Tyrese is being heavily criticized for sharing a screenshot of R Kelly’s condolence texts on Instagram. The singer, R Kelly who has been jailed for sex trafficking children, gave his condolence to Tyrese as his mother recently died. While the text seems normal, Tyrese’s caption made the viewers furious.

Tyrese shared his mother, Priscilla Murray’s death news on February 2022 shortly after she battled pneumonia and Covid-19. This tragic news was acknowledged by all his fans as they sent him immense condolences. But on March 11, Tyrese shared a post on Instagram with R Kelly’s condolence with a ‘selfish’ caption. In the screenshot, sex trafficker R Kelly said, “From R. Kelly To Tyrese. Hey lil bro, my condolences to you about mom” and added, “She is in a better place with my mom & they both smiling down on us.” He also mentioned that "I know it's a lot having to deal with this in the limelight, but keep ya head up. - Rob."

Why the fans are angry with Tyrese?

While the condolence text looks fine, the fact that Tyrese shared Kelly's message is what triggered the outrage. Singer R Kelly was found guilty on all charges of racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child, and kidnapping in 2021. He faces a sentence of 10 years to life in prison for his disgraceful act. While everyone knows about the singer’s terrible side, Tyrese added a caption to the post saying, “Love you Kellz damn he is on the inside and still took time to get Condolences out to me and my family…" He added, "Selfishly I wish they could sneak a protools rig and a mic in your jail cell so that you can unload all of those ideas cause I know you don't write all of your hits have been freestyled off the top."

How did the fans react?

Fans were left upset at how Tyrese made Kelly look like he is a ‘good’ person. After all the proven terrible crimes, a famous actor like Tyrese pointing to Kelly as “R&B King” seemed legit awful. Fan took this to Twitter and expressed their views. One user wrote, “Tyrese got condolences from R. Kelly and decided to share it on IG. Sigh.” while another wrote, “Not tyrese posting a message from R Kelly, PLEASEEEEEE gone somewhere” Another user wrote, “This is also proof that men having daughters doesn’t automatically make them empathetic to women. Tyrese has a daughter the same age Aaliyah was when R. Kelly started grooming her. How the thought of this man doesn’t make him physically ill… idk..” Does Tyrese really understand what he did? Maybe yes, because he turned off his Instagram post’s comments but did he really realize? What are your thoughts?
