Did You Miss It?! Erykah Badu Roasted By Own Fans For Defending R. Kelly

Published: Sunday 20th Jan 2019 by Rashad

Erykah Badu was invited to have a window seat after headlines rang across the net she was booed during her concert last night (January 19) at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom after she went on a rant in defense of embattled R&B singer R. Kelly.

As Kelly is immersed in a media firestorm after the scathing documentary, ‘Surviving R. Kelly,’ aired on Lifetime at the top of the year featuring victims who allege the ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ singer sexually assaulted them, the general public – including his own label (as we reported here) – have spoken out against him.  Badu dared to stand against the outcry and she is suffering a Twitter tongue-lashing as a result….

This isn’t the first time the ‘Danger’ singer was in danger for supporting a villain.  This time last year she made headlines for claiming she ‘saw the good in’ Adolf HitlerClick here to read more on that.

    I can’t & won’t find the words for any of the justifications that he’s receiving…🤦🏽‍♂️

      R. Kelly is a legend. A lot of blacks like me want him to address the issues and do a sit down interview. Just because a BIASED ONE-SIDED documentary aired does NOT mean I HAVE to believe everything in it. There are 3 sides to every story. For me, CRITICAL issues were missing in the documentary interviews:

      1. All of the women claimed to be legally adults when they dated R. Kelly.

      2. All of the women dated R. Kelly voluntarily.

      3. All of the women claimed to have chased after R. Kelly and not the other way around.

      These are not victims. These are groupies and parents of legally adult aged children who chased after a well known pedo. They got what they sought!

      People these days are very INSECURE. They want you to be just as gullible as them, believe what they believe, feel what they feel, etc but F.UCK THAT. We are human beings. All of us are capable of forming our opinions and believing what we CHOOSE to believe.

        @FakeJasmine I saw your emails to David. You are a certified psycho! Look at how you are representing your community. How would Caitlyn Jenner, Chaz Bono, Laverne Cox and the rest of your community feel that you are out here representing them like that? You need to pray to Buddha ASAP

        1. Not true at all.
        2. They didn’t volunteer to be mentally and physically abused and manipulated.
        3. Wrong again. They all said he chose them out of the crowd and extended an invitation. Even if they had pursued him, he should’ve turned them down. If an underage student propositions her male teacher, what happens if the teacher accepts and the two are caught having a s–ual relationship? Exactly.

      • Jasmine January 20, 2019

        Eric please re-watch the documentary. There is NO ONE who said Kelly ‘chose them out of the crowd and extended an invitation.’ That is NOT TRUE. Many of those women claim to have pursued Kelly for weeks before he agreed to see them.

        3. NONE OF THE WOMEN in the documentary were underage when they claimed to start dating Kelly. The youngest one was Jeronda Pace who was 16 when she started dating Kelly and moved into his Atlanta house. Well, legally, 16 is the age of consent in GA so legally she was an adult. The rest of the women were 18 yo plus when they began dating Kelly. Again, past the age of consent legally. Thus, NO ONE WAS UNDERRAGE. Furthermore, the FACT no prosecutors have pursued a criminal case against Kelly in 20 years is very telling and the reasoning is because what he is doing is technically LEGAL.

        1. and 2. You DON’T KNOW if they were ‘mentally and physically abused and manipulated’ as FACT. You are just guillible enough to believe whatever you were told in that documentary WITH NOTHING PROVEN! ALL the women in that documentary were PAID for their interviews. They are motivated by money! Find me a woman who is not motivated by money to speak on Kelly and I will believe her! Okay! Them ain’t nothing but groupies who chased after a well known pedo. They got what they sought!

        Jasmine’s Words of Wisdom:

        1. U chase a snake and he bite you that ain’t nobody’s fault but your own cause u knew they were a snake before you got with him.

        2. U chase a married man and he treat you like a FREAK HO…Girl he treating you the way you SHOULD be treated. Close your DAMN legs to married mens!

        3. U date an old school man who you know ain’t treating you right and then you want to mouth off at him instead of leaving him and then he CHOKES you…Girl you need to be choked cause u should have controlled your mouth from rattling off at him.

        4. If U date a man who got other women girl you ain’t nothing but a cuum bucket cause u ‘willingly’ are sleeping with a man that ain’t satisfied by just u. No women I know SHARES a man. If u got to SHARE u need to be shooken up so that u get the nerve to leave his ass and find a man of your own you dont have to share!

        Now, based on my receipts and my words of advise those freak hos ‘volunteered’ to drink whatever he poured and that is that!

      • Cinnamon. January 21, 2019

        @FakeJasmine I saw it with my own eyes. The fact that you sent David over 60 emails from two different emails nominating yourself to be a TGJ writer and seconding the nomination over and over really concerns me. I also the first 20 denial replies and the block list. I’ve lit some sage and nag champa for you ( I heard that was Caitlyn Jenner’s fav so I’m sure you like it too). We are having lunch with David on Tuesday and he’s bringing all his receipts. You really need help

    When did she say she supports them? She sees things as we ALL should see it. Through the eyes of God. Forgiveness and understandstqnding dosent mean SUPPORT! When God forgives he also teaches .

    • iamdiego January 21, 2019

      i agree.

  5. JA_LA January 21, 2019

    This is a clear example of how the education system has failed so many. Erykah did NOT say she supported R. Kelly’s actions. You see in the video what she said. She said that if he did those things she hopes he comes forward and sees the light. That is the equivalent to what the Bible says about repenting. Are you all cancelling Jesus too? lol. Because she said she’s praying for him that means she’s making an excuse for him? It is possible to support someone without defending them. It is possible to support someone and still believe they deserve whatever consequences come from their actions. It is possible to support someone’s journey to recognizing their wrong doings and making a spiritual change, or as Erykah said “sees the light of day.” I can respect someone taking that view point. I think he’s a disgusting human being, but he’s not beyond saving. I’m just not evolved enough to extend that kind of love to him, but more power to Erykah if she wants to take a path of love.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. January 21, 2019

      JA.. – Nicely said. Especially the part about Jesus. I also agree with NOT being the person to extend that type of love to him.
