From "Why did the church play the song in the first place?" to "The issue here is the church playing Kelly's song". These are some of the sentiments shared by people who showed their support for New York City (NYC) mayor Bill de Blasio.

This was in response to a tweet in which a video of De Blasio dancing to R. Kelly's I believe I can fly was posted.

The video was captured and posted by Courtney Gross who is a reporter at NY1 News as she was attending the same church service as De Blasio in South Carolina on Sunday.

While Gross questioned if the mayor knew who sings the song he danced to, Tweeps took the mayor's side, saying he had no control of what songs get played and instead blamed the church for playing Kelly's music. 

Here are some of the reactions:

R. Kelly, who is out on $100,000 bail, is facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual assault.
