The whole world tuned in to watch Kobe Bryant play the last game of his career Wednesday night (Apr 13), and the Black Mamba put on one helluva show that ended with him scoring 60 points.
A bunch of celebrities, including rappers Jay Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, etc. watched the game from their cushy courtside seats, but it looks like R. Kelly had to watch the game at home just like everyone else.
This is what the “Backyard Party” singer posted on Twitter:

Kellz intended to show the world, “Hey, I’m just like you, I’m watching Kobe’s final game at home on TV,” but he ended up becoming the laughing stock of Twitter after folks started clowning him for having a small ass TV on a big ass wall.
“Is that an iPad on your wall?” one Twitterer asked. “You’ve been kidnapped?” another Twitter user asked. “You in jail?” asked another.
@rkelly is that an iPad on your wall?

After noticing the hilarious replies to his tweet, Kellz responded back, saying that he wasn’t watching the game at his house.
Still, who puts a TV that small on a wall that big? Such a terrible use of wall space, IMO.
