R. Kelly Faces Fresh Fire As Celebrities Join Forces To Tackle “Perverted” Star

Published: Monday 30th Apr 2018 by David

R. Kelly, the R&B singer accused of molesting several African-American minors (the late Aaliyah and his own goddaughter included) has woken up to more bad news this morning.

For, after his lawyer, publicist and assistant kicked him to the curb, the ageing performer has learned that a league of altruistic celebrities have joined forces to finish him once…and for all.

Good news below…

Horrified by his sickening acts, black men and women within Hollywood teamed up to pen the open letter below with hopes doing so would put an end to his filth and encourage victims of sexual abuse to reclaim the power and expose their abusers.

To Our Fellow Women of Color:

We see you. We hear you. Because we are you.

For too long, our community has ignored our pain. The pain we bear is a burden that too many women of color have had to bear for centuries. The wounds run deep.

As Women of Color within Time’s Up, we recognize that we have a responsibility to help right this wrong. We intend to shine a bright light on our WOC sisters in need. It is our hope that we will never feel ignored or silenced ever again.

The recent court decision against Bill Cosby is one step towards addressing these ills but it is just a start. We call on people everywhere to join with us to insist on a world in which women of all kinds can pursue their dreams free from sexual assault, abuse and predatory behavior.

To this end, today we join an existing online campaign called #MuteRKelly.

Over the past 25 years, the man known publicly as R. Kelly has sold 60 million albums, toured the globe repeatedly, and accumulated hundreds of millions of plays on radio and streaming services.

During this time, he also…

  • Married a girl under 18 years of age (Aaliyah’s family did not give him permission to do so despite reports published by some media outlets)
  • Was sued by at least 4 women for sexual misconduct, statutory rape, aggravated assault, unlawful restraint, and furnishing illegal drugs to a minor;
  • Was indicted on 21 counts of child pornography;
  • Has faced allegations of sexual abuse and imprisonment of women under threats of violence and familial harm;

Together, we call on the following corporations and venues with ties to R. Kelly to join us and insist on safety and dignity for women of all kinds:

  • RCA Records – The venerable music label currently produces and distributes R. Kelly’s music;
  • Ticketmaster – The popular ticketing system is currently issuing tickets for R. Kelly’s show on May 11;
  • Spotify and Apple Music – The popular streaming platforms currently monetizing R. Kelly’s music;
  • Greensboro Coliseum Complex – The venue is currently hosting an R. Kelly concert on May 11.

The scars of history make certain that we are not interested in persecuting anyone without just cause. With that said, we demand appropriate investigations and inquiries into the allegations of R. Kelly’s abuse made by women of color and their families for over two decades now. And we declare with great vigilance and a united voice to anyone who wants to silence us – their time is up.

Together, We Are Strong,

WOC | TIME’S UP

He is yet to respond.

    It’s not necessary to keep using photos of Aaliyah for this story. There’s plenty of pics of this pervert by himself that you can choose from to headline your posts.

      R Kelly is a good man with a freaky side. He can do whatever he wants to me. I’ll take it in any hole and I drank the p i s s like a fish.

      We can Bump N Grind and go Half On A Baby while he’s Feeling On My Booty and sticking his key in my Ignition

        Suicide Trash STOP impersonating me b|tch. You should get a life with your BLURRY pic copying ugly racist asss. You garbage dumpster. You TRASH! You are messing with the wrong one!

    • Jasmine April 30, 2018

      This is BS. That closet lesbian Sonya needs to spread her negative energy around to all the white men that are sexual abusers and stop attacking R. Kelly just because of some indescretions he was already found innocent of over 20 years ago! There has been no underage women that have accused him of anything in the past 20 years! A 19 year old woman is an adult. Now R. Kelly needs to do a sit down interview ans shut all this down but I suspect there is more that the public does not know regarding his recent indiscretions. Let the truth come out or a guilty verdict before the continuous attack of this black man and if you are going to attack Kelly be fair and attack all the men, including white ones, accused of sexual abuse.

    I don’t want to make it bout race, but what Trump, and Harvey? They both been accuse of allegations but it seems like the media is more focus on the ones done by African Americans. Let be clear I do think the people such as cosby and Rkelly deserve what’s coming but so do the others

    • Sense April 30, 2018

      One Google search would tell you that Harvey can no longer work in Hollywood and that his company is close to crumbling.

      • Meme April 30, 2018

        I think the issue is Harvey is still a free man and doesn’t look like he’ll even face charges like Bill. It’s not a matter of not working.

      • Erica April 30, 2018

        exactly he’s rich he doesn’t have to work ever again

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ April 30, 2018

      Harvey’s charges are fresh, bill is two-three years in and he’s just getting his just due. Harvey will get his, it’s only been a few months and trump, oh he’s going down for a whole lot more than that

        Suicide Trash STOP impersonating me b|tch. You should get a life with your BLURRY pic copying ugly racist asss. You garbage dumpster. You TRASH! You are messing with wrong one..

    • SMH April 30, 2018

      Yeah we’ll see. Although we already know nothing substantial will happen to Harvey or trump, and we all know why. No need to pretend we don’t know the reason.

    • tesha April 30, 2018

      No one is talking about Trump! Stop diverting the attention! geez! This guy threat to every Underage girl out there!

      • Jasmine May 1, 2018

        Name one underage girl with accusations in the past 25 years! You can’t because they don’t exist.

    It’s time that someone stood in te gap for these helpless young women/girls. It really doesn’t matter at this point their reasons for becoming involved with R Kelly, as he is the adult, and undoubtedly took advantage due to his power over these women. Your days are numbered R Kelly. Shame on you.
