You can't PROVE R. Kelly is to blame for 9-11, says excused juror

R. Kelly once gave an interview with Blender magazine in which he said that only Osama Bin Laden could understand what he'd been through.

Today, in a move that got him booted from the jury pool quicker than you can say "Charlie Sheen-style conspiracy theory," one potential juror suggested R. Kelly may have more in common with the bearded Saudi terrorist than public vilification.

Asked by Judge Gaughan to read out an undecipherable answer he'd given to a jury questionnaire question, the bespectacled potential juror gave a memorable answer...

"Child pornography is immoral, people," he began, reasonably enough. But he continued, "R. Kelly may have led the Taliban to attacking us on 9-11, but you can't prove it."

Gaughan thanked the man for his time and excused him.

Defense attorney Sam Adam joked the man would have been "a perfect juror."
