Welcome to the Corporate Casket, a semiweekly series where bad businesses go to die. We will discuss any and everything from bad charities, terrible CEOs, and businesses that have a lot to hide.
In the 1990s and early 2000s, there seemed to be no brighter star than R Kelly. He seemed to release hit after hit and his bizarre music videos and beautiful r&b sound garnered mass attention, rewards, and fans throughout his career. But, there was a darker side to the singer hidden in the background. His horrific actions remained in the shadows, thanks —-in part—- to the music industry seemingly refusing to lose one of their brightest stars. But after a groundbreaking documentary, it all came crashing down and this once admired star has now become one of the most hated people in the music industry.
