R. Kelly ribbed for watching Bryant's last game on small TV

Musical artist R. Kelly watched Kobe Bryant’s final game on an absurdly small television.

It’s the remix to bad vision.

Like most people with a shred of interest in basketball, R. Kelly tuned in to Kobe Bryant’s final NBA game Wednesday night. Unlike some of his celebrity counterparts who took in the game courtside, though, the R&B singer had to squint to make out number 24.

The “Ignition remix” singer posted a photo to Twitter of himself watching the historic moment on an absurdly small television. Though the post was meant to show respect for an NBA legend, all Internet commenters saw was a teeny tiny opportunity to further torture the much maligned singer.

And they were trying to be rude. It started with the seemingly innocent, “is that an iPad on your wall?” followed by a slew of other jokes. At a certain point, Kelly even tried to weakly defend himself.

“Ya’ll are trippin’! I wasn’t watching the game at my place,” he wrote.

But that didn’t stop the cruel Internet from tearing him apart, and eventually he just sat back in front of his miniature TV and let it happen. If he missed anything, he could always Bump n’ Rewind.

Seeing Kelly holed up alone watching the Bryant show makes it safe to assume he wasn’t privy to the after party info this time.

Here are some of the best burns from the brutal Twitter exchange:
