The wall of silence that is said to have enabled R. Kelly‘s allegedly sickening obsession with African-American children has been shattered by a new documentary unveiled the British Broadcasting Channel.
In it, much to the ageing star’s horror, his former friends come forward to detail the abuse they say witnessed while in his presence and offer proof that he has indeed groomed, raped and assaulted the minors he calls his “pets.”
How viewers responded to the unearthing of his secrets?

I think the reluctance to address R Kelly is both about the disregard society has for the safety & well being of young black girls and also fear of the music industry being exposed like the movie industry has been following Weinstein

Yeah I’ve reached a point where I can’t even listen to R. Kelly’s music. I’m not giving him that “He’s talented but…” pass either.

Imagine if R Kelly’s victims were white women…

R Kelly is the monster that Black Families allow to fester within our own ranks b/c: “Aren’t the odds already so stacked against us?” “Shouldn’t we protect our men who are already so vulnerable”
Silence is complicity.
Protecting predators while sacrificing innocence.

bruv the R Kelly documentary is seriously FUCKED
The morality of the music industry has never been known to be particularly great, but it takes a certain person to protect an artist from abuse and nonce allegations – as an artist STAY CLEAR from those kind of people

The fact that R.Kelly is still making millions is ridiculous feminists love to talk about toxic masculinity and all that extra shit like diss Chris Brown but then go buy tickets to a R.Kelly concert no man is supporting him that’s all y’all

Yet to see the documentary?
Kelly isn’t the only R&B performer facing fire for alleged crimes against children. Marques Houston, the performer accused of molesting several African-American boys, is said to lie at the heart of Nickelodeon‘s refusal to reboot the hit show ‘Sister Sister’.
