    It's NOT funny. What R. Kelly did to those young girls is NOT funny. To make that humorous is sick. Shouldn't some things be taken seriously?

    If the world really wants to know if R. Kelly did or not do those things ..... they should just listen to the song 12 Play where he explains his innocence.

    It's so cool to have been a huge All That and Kenan and Kel fan since I was a kid and to see Kenan continue to crush it. He's so underappreciated on SNL, but so essential to the show. He's a legit legend.

    While Leslie can sometimes be very funny, she ALWAYS flubs her lines. Every time I"ve seen her, she has at least one and usually more flubs. It's irritating.

    I don't know who is more stupid, Kelly or Epstein. Photos and tapes tell the truth. They can both fight for their lives in prison. Guess prisoners feel like Cosby is just to old now & ain't worth the trouble of killing him.
