Ava DuVernay Condemns R. Kelly Over Molestation Allegations

Published: Sunday 3rd Dec 2017 by David

Ava DuVernay wants the world to remember the singer R. Kelly is accused of molesting and ruining the lives of several black girls…including the late singer Aaliyah.

How the brilliant creative is shedding light on the issue in a post Weinstein-gate world?

Find out below…

 

Keen to ensure that the world doesn’t forget that Kelly still faces legal fire for his allegedly despicable acts against African-American minors, Ava shared an article posted by the New Yorker which condemned the vocalist.

None of the many stars for whom Kelly has written and produced hits have spoken out against him—from Jay-Z, with whom he made two albums and did two co-headlining tours, to Lady Gaga, a champion of female empowerment and herself a sexual-abuse survivor. Last December, Kelly appeared on the “Tonight Show,” singing his Christmas songs and getting a big hug from the host, Jimmy Fallon. Now Kelly is climbing the charts again with “Juicy Booty,” a collaboration with Chris Brown (who was vilified for assaulting Rihanna, in 2009) and the singer Jhené Aiko.

Joining the chorus of voices urging the music industry to give Kelly the boot?

 

 

Now, we ask you…

Why do you think the music industry is so reluctant to shun Kelly?

    It’s time!! Take his Perv ass DOWN!! I always found it disgusting how women still flock to his concerts even with all the evidence( Video, Marriage to a child, alleged s** slaves..) I guess it’s like the church… See what you want, and ignore the rest, but gays are still called p*********! 🙄

    I haven’t listened to any of R Kelly’s new music in years and what he has done is truly horrific and I hope he does get blacklisted. However I will continue to listen to his old songs.

    U can’t marry a minor unless parents give consent! The girl says it’s not her in a video and these s** slaves are not held against their will! They choose to leave home and live with him. From my POV he’s not perfect but ppl dislike him based off of ALLEGATIONS! Just like the title says

    • Haus Mutha Adele December 3, 2017

      You fool! That’s why he had Aaliyah lie about her age. And the girls in the videos confirm that they were 13 and 14 when they were shot which is why he was charged with child abuse.

      • Kevin King December 3, 2017

        Kelly won those cases. A charge is simply a charge but a jury’s vedict of innocent is what actually means something!

      • Bianca December 3, 2017

        No ur the fool! Again it’s all allegations! The girl he supposedly peed on said it’s not her! U sound so foolish, he is not a convicted s** offender and his marriage to Aaliyah was legit sooooo again u can’t get married as teen without parental consent! That’s the problem in this world ppl think their feelings and opinions trump facts!

    He’s turned the latter career years into an almost exclusively urban fan base. If he came out gay they’d throw his shyt out tomorrow but m***** all the girls you want.

    • Haus Mutha Adele December 3, 2017

      So true. So so true.

    I wonder how much did Weinstein’s PR rep pay this ho to shift the focus to a black man. Nobody is boycotting Weinstein’s residual income streams so why should Kelly’s residual income streams be boycotted? Kelly’s last tour flopped so what is the point of boycotting a failed tour. This is another Uncle Tom Jigaboo clucking for the white man by doing his dirty work.

      If you know anything at all about Ava DuVarney you would know that your description of her doesn’t even come close to squaring with reality! Get your head out of the gutter.

    • Melanie December 3, 2017

      Look everyone… It’s “Kevin King” aka “Jasmine” who likes to go on posts defending destructive and dumba$$ black men with all types of Hotep-rhetoric, while calling people “[email protected]” and all other types of homophobic slurs. His/Her crusade to uplift straight black men while bashing LGBTQ folks and black women show that he/she feels completely inadequate.

      TAKE NOTE EVERYONE… THIS IS AN INTERNET TROLL (probably a insecure black man) WITH NO LIFE OR SELF-WORTH. HE/SHE CAN’T MAKE UP WHICH GENDER HE/SHE WANTS TO BE AND IS PROBABLY A CLOSETED HOMOSEXUAL.

      • Jasmine December 3, 2017

        @Melanie Shut up b|tch. Kevin is NOT me and vice versa. I barely comment on these stupid race baiting posts anymore but I see you thirstily missing me. I am not gay nor do I have anything against gay men. There is a strong difference between a gay man and a f*****. If I have called a particular person a f***** that has nothing to do with you nor should it offend you because i was not talking to you. Anything to take the attention off Harvey Weinstein huh even if it is bringing up old charges against a black man that already won his cases when a jury found him innocent. I see rught through this nonsense.

      • Melanie December 3, 2017

        ALL TGJ COMMENTORS….. “KEVIN KING” AND “JASMINE” ARE THE SAME PERSON AND THIS TROUBLED TROLL IN QUESTION PROBABLY HAS COMMENTED UNDER OTHER VARIOUS NAMES BECAUSE THEY ARE MISERABLE AND HAVE NO LIFE AT ALL. NOTICE HOW I REPLIED DIRECTLY TO “KEVIN” YET “JASMINE” RESPONDS WITHIN HOURS USING A DIFFERENT EMAIL ADDRESS (WHICH OF COURSE NO ON CAN SEE).

        THIS IDIOT IS USING VARIOUS EMAIL ADDRESSES AND NAMES TO TROLL COMMENTORS… DON’T WASTE ANYMORE TIME ON THESE TYPE OF COMMENTS FROM THESE TYPE OF TROLLS BECAUSE THEY ARE A COMPLETE WASTE.

      • Jasmine December 4, 2017

        Lol I see you Suicide Blonde. So bitter. So mean. So lonely. Hating a z z. You are the one hiding behind multiple accounts but using the same mean / nasty verbiage. Not me. Like I said before this does not take the attention off Harvey Weinstein.

    I agree and stupid black women support his ass and wonder why society do not care about us black peoples are their worst enemies if a black star r*** a black woman they condemn that black woman and side with the star look at bill Cosby black people still do not think he guilty its pathetic and sad jay z is a hypocrite himself I’m waiting for women to come out about his sexually abusing them it’s coming watch he acting all remorseful about cheating on beyonce just like Russell Simmons these men are sick prey on the innocent and expect to move on get rich karma is coming

    People will NOT stop listening to “Bump N Grind”, “You Remind Me”, “I Believe I Can Fly”, “I Wish”, “Fiesta”, “Ignition (Remix)”, “Same Girl” and etc among his POWERFUL catalog of music.
    Why?
    Because it touches our souls and most importantly NOSTALGIA comes into play.
    Do y’all understand he is the King of R&B. He isn’t called that for no reason. His sales and constant humongous contribution to the genre and being so successful and crossing over to the Pop Charts time after time.

    Now, R. Kelly has been accused of many things but I don’t know if for sure it’s 100%. All I know is I listen to the music. I don’t know that man.

    Fake outrage. Why now, Ava and Touré???

  9. B2B December 3, 2017

    We must first hold these young girls accountable. If you lie about your age like so many of these young girls do to become “famous.” And Ava should leave Jay-Z and Gaga out of this. Rkelly was on Oprah’s show many time and correct me if I am wrong, doesn’t she work on Queen Sugar, which is on OWN. Further more, Chris Brown had paid his debt to society. Let it go, clearly Rihanna has! Aaliyah was made famous by Rkelly… was she complaining? Or was she getting famous? Once you’re 17/18, age does not matter for some and honestly at that age you’re an adult believe it or not. I personally don’t believe in dating younger, but I’ve seen girls 21 date men 50+ for their advantage… all I’m saying is everyone should be held accountable. Too many women cry r*** because the situation didn’t work for their advantage. BY THE WAY… Juicy Booty is a bop!

    • Caleb December 3, 2017

      Hold the girls accountable for being victimized by this freak?

    • Caleb December 3, 2017

      It’s so disturbing that people exist with this terrible mindset.

      • Jason December 3, 2017

        Very disturbing!

    • Your Name December 3, 2017

      What the f*** EVER! We need to hold these old ass creeps and perverts accountable!
