While being interviewed by Nadeska Alexis at Coachella over the weekend, Staples began discussing his ongoing probation and why he’s not worried about the possibility of imprisonment, using R. Kelly as an example.
“Think about it… R. Kelly never went to jail, and he’s a fucking child molester,” Staples said.
“He’s a child molester. But I’m saying, if he’s a child molester, and he pees on people, and he can’t read and write, and he didn’t go to jail — I’m a good person.
“R. Kelly a piece of fucking shit. So piece-of-fucking-shit R. Kelly didn’t go to jail for being a child molester, for peeing on people, and having a human trafficking ring in Atlanta, then I’ll be alright.”
The interview naturally went viral, and earlier today, Staples tweeted that R. Kelly’s ‘people’ are trying to get in contact with him.
I just got a text saying R. Kelly people is looking for me. Guess it’s time to get security, the Pied Piper is coming….
