Twitter Heaps Praise Upon Gayle King’s Professionalism In Face of R. Kelly Meltdown: ‘Master’s Class in Interviewing’


CBS’ Gayle King is being praised for keeping her cool as singer R. Kelly had a meltdown during his interview with her. She was questioning him on if he ever had sexual relations with underage girls, which he vigorously denied.

At one point, he was standing and screaming at Gayle, who remained in her chair and sat in silence. R. Kelly’s publicist eventually had to step in to help calm him down.

The images of Gayle looking calm and professional juxtaposed with a highly emotional R. Kelly were discussed on Twitter:

R. Kelly had surrendered himself to Chicago police and is being charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to The New York Times. He is scheduled to appear in court on March 22.
