The ever-so-famous Benedict Cumberbatch has gotten in “trouble,” dare we say, with his devoted fan base.
According to nowmagazine.com, Cumberbatch read rap star R Kelly’s newest song’s lyrics live on a US talk show. The song consisted of lyrics like, “I can’t wait to turn you on/It’s how you make me feel, baby/I can feel your body flowers while I’m kissin’ on your thighs.” This caused a very unexpected response from Cumberbatch’s seemingly devoted fans, some even going as far as saying “Benedict celebrating R Kelly is disgusting. I will never support [Benedict] again.”
But is there a reason behind the backlash? R Kelly has been haunted with 21 accounts of sex with a minor in 2008 which was later reduced to ‘soliciting a minor for child pornography.’ Despite his past, Kelly continues to produce raunchy and explicit albums like his most recent “Black Panties.”
It seemed as though Cumberbatch was just reading the lyrics as a joke, but some of his fans did not think that was very funny. What do you think?
