Twitter made several jokes at Trump’s expense and also brought R&B singer R. Kelly into the “Pee-Gate” hysteria. A 2002 video allegedly shows the musician engaging in sex with and urinating on an underage girl, and the Internet just loves connecting things.

The urine-related jokes sort of got out of hand when several tweets wrote that R. Kelly was “confirmed” to perform at the inauguration.

This eventually led the Grammy-Award winner to deny that he would be performing at the upcoming Trump inauguration.

“Despite the rumors circulating online, R. Kelly will not be performing at this years inauguration ceremony,” a message from the musician said on Twitter. “Any reports stating otherwise are simply untrue.” He followed up with “End. Of. Story.”

Nice try, Internet.
