During an interview with “The Breakfast Club” on Tuesday, the show’s co-creator, Brennan, described Kelly’s reaction to a sketch that poked fun at his legal woes in the form of a fictitious music video called “Piss on You.”
Brennan said, the embattled RnB singer was not happy about the skit, which recreated of his 2002 case bothering on child pornography after a video surfaced in which a man believed to be the Kelly allegedly urinated on an underage girl. He was acquitted of all 14 counts in 2008.
“R. Kelly wanted to fight Dave,” narrated Brennan. “Literally, his goons stepped to Dave in Chicago and Dave’s goons intervened. The goons negotiated.”
Brennan was also asked in the interview if he felt the skit, along with others that made fun of Kelly, helped normalize his behaviour – that he replied with an emphatic no.
“I don’t think people understand what comedy is supposed to do,” he told the radio show. “We will observe things, we will make fun of things. Did people want us to round up a posse and go arrest R. Kelly? Like, what were we supposed to do?”
He added, “Our job is to poke fun at things. And even if it’s bleak, we still poke fun at it. We were trying to humiliate a guy who was known for peeing.”
