Yesterday, R. Kelly’s name was trending on Twitter. Not for anything he had done but because of the fact that BuzzFeed recently discovered that President-elect Donald Trump and the fallen R&B star have a sexual proclivity in common. The Golden shower specifically.

In case you missed the news, a collection of documents, written over a period of months, expound not only on Donald Trump’s relationship with Russia but also some compromising and salacious information, including this:

Wild. President Obama managed to go eight years scandal free. But Donald Trump, who has not even been inaugurated yet, has several messy moments, past and present. And who knows that the future will bring.

As you might image, the words Donald Trump and golden shower, in the same sentence launched an uproar on Twitter. Check out some of the tweets discussing #GoldenShowerGate.
