R. Kelly’s YouTube Channels SHUT DOWN After Sex Trafficking Conviction

Published: Wednesday 6th Oct 2021 by Sam

The ramifications are beginning to rain down on R. Kelly following his conviction on nine counts of sex trafficking.

For, YouTube has announced that it has permanently terminated two of the singer’s channels on its platform.

Full story below…

The streaming giant has confirmed the immediate closure of both “RKellyTV” and “RKellyVEVO,” stressing that the move is “in accordance with our creator responsibility guidelines”.

Kelly notably was found guilty of racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, sex trafficking, and more.

It effectively serves as the blacklisting of the disgraced star’s career video output. Moving forward, Kelly will not be able to create any further channels either.

As for what will remain? Any user-generated videos of the star, as well as his music on the audio-only corner of the platform, YouTube Music.

Kelly is currently awaiting sentencing for this New York trial, which will take place in May 2022. He’s also set to go to trial for further sexual assault allegations in Chicago.

The embattled performer, who has vowed to prove his innocence, faces life in imprisonment for his crimes.

    Then his album sales are gonna go higher . And some artist don’t want their music on YouTube.

      Exactly! People are still listening to his music. I’m just wondering if they’re going to make his entire catalog unavailable for the public, otherwise streaming services are getting paid.

    Something still doesn’t feel right. I know for a fact Robert never hogtied anyone. R Kelly ain’t never did nothing to hurt nobody. Same goes for Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson. The media loves framing BLACK men. That video of him and that 14 year old was proven to be just a LOOKALIKE

    R KELLY IS STILL 100% INNOCENT just as he was found innocent decades ago

    His audio music is still on YouTube & people are streaming daily since his views are climbing. Behind closed doors, R.Kelly is not cancelled….contrary to belief.

  4. Ugghh October 6, 2021

    I love me some R.Kelly! Leave the King of R&B alone, would ya?

  5. J October 6, 2021

    I’m sorry but this is dumb as f*** at this point

    Erasing the videos now won’t erase the damage that was already done by the music industry

    Everyone involved needs to go to jail if that’s the case! I hope he snitches on all of them

      It is for real… let his kids get the money/benefit… he’s in prison. Like?!?

    Yeah, he’s garbage and damaged goods but i dont support this. The man still has kids and family snd staff who depend on him financially.
    Think about them.

    He has an admirable discography. U cant just cancel it away and pretend it never happened.
