R. Kelly, the veteran R&B singer poised to make a major comeback with the release of his latest album "Black Panties," tried a little consumer engagement on Twitter and didn't get quite what he was expecting.

As previously reported by NewsOne, there have been intense reactions-from supporters and critics alike-to R'uh’s return to the spotlight.

The singer infamously dodged prosecution on 14 child pornography charges in 2008 after "allegedly" filming himself having sex and urinating on a 13-year-old girl.

In 1994, he married late "Age Ain;t Nothin' But A Number" singer Aaliyah when she was just 15-years-old; the union was ultimately annulled. Add those things to persistent rumors that his predilection for underage girls spans his entire career, and there are some people who can't bring themselves to listen to his music.

And they were not shy about expressing their disgust on Twitter.

Read selected tweets from #AskRKelly below:

While R. Kelly has his die-hard supporters who never fail to mention that he should be allowed to move on from his past, there are many more who can not forgive his alleged victimization of underage girls and have permanently boycotted his music.

As Facebook user Zahir Oluwaseyi wrote:

How does [R. Kelly] still get a pass? This dude has raped multiple girls (a teenager, legally, can not consent to sex). This dude is a pervert and should be in prison. Let's see, in 94 he married a 15 year old. In 96 he was sued for sleeping with another 15 year old. In 2000 his manager quit saying it was because Kelly needed psychiatric help because of his addiction to little girls. In 2002 he was finally arrested for the infamous sex tape (the girl was in the 8th grade at the time). And those are just the teenagers that we know about. Who knows how many countless others have been destroyed by this piece of garbage. Yes, he makes great music but he is also a terrible human being and that should mean something. To all the people copping pleas for this sick bastard, imagine if your daughter, younger sister or little cousin was 13 and a 30 year old man was sleeping with her. Would you still be okay with this demon?

Ironically, the Pied Piper himself has two daughters.

Maybe someone should #AskRKelly the answer to that question.
