The Internet Reacts To ‘Creepy’ Nelly Video Amid Rape Allegations

On Saturday (Oct. 6th) Nelly was arrested for allegedly raping a 21-year-old woman on a tour bus in the state of Washington. It would be hours after the Country Grammar rapper was detained when a video would surface that many labeled ‘creepy’.

In the video clip (that had absolutely nothing to do with the rape allegations, we must add) the St. Louis rapper would bring a child on stage and proceed to ask about school. The clip would start to get weird when Nelly proceeded to sing to the child and twirl her hair after asking her to hold his shades. Social media users would respond calling the video creepy and flooding the net with memes and gifs.

Nelly would be released hours after being arrested without charges being filed, according to his lawyer, Scott Rosenblum.

He would take to Twitter to proclaim his innocence stating, “Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation. I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.” He would continue tweeting out multiple tweets including ones that stated, “And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim. Thank you.”

Nelly would conclude his Twitter statement by saying, “To be absolutely clear. I have not been charged with a crime therefore no bail was required. I was released, pending further investigation.”
