Chuck D has offered an apology after seeming to sympathize with R. Kelly.

The disgraced singer was found guilty of racketeering and sex trafficking on Monday, September 27 in a Brooklyn federal court, which Chuck responded to one day later. 



"Abused in his youth… an addict as a adult… Ike Turner served 18 months in prison.. Rick James did similar time," wrote the Public Enemy frontman. "Ike came out a changed positive human being. How long should R Kelly spend in prison -and does a USA system give a man a chance for a man to change his world around? Its not a sympathetic question at all . Not the least."

Chuck was ripped for his tweets soon after, so he sent another message to fix things.


 

"JUST TO BE CLEAR, I’m not the R Kelly fan here. 75 million sold somewhere & I ain’t got 1 of his songs," he tweeted. "And his actions were criminal my apologies if the wings of perception loomed beyond than the words on this slaveApp."

What do you think about Chuck's initial tweets and his apology?
