R Kelly is well known for is amazing music and lyrics but we can never talk about about him without mentioning his behind the scene dispicable acts.
Following the released list of performing arts for the fourthcoming Soulquarius concert which includes R Kelly triggered an online petition against the R&B Singer.
On December 18 Change.org posted a petition written by a fan Jamie Thompson, aimed to ban R Kelly from performing at the fourthcoming Soulquarius one day festival concert. The petition which needs to garner 500 attention is almost at it.
"It's this sort of nonchalance and casual embrace of abusers that rests at the fulcrum of rape culture, violence against women, and in this case, misogynoir," the petition states. "2017 is around the corner and many of us still have to look on in disgust as a proven predator, rapist and serial abuser of young Black girls and women remains embraced in the world of music. Stop booking this man. Stop supporting this man." The writter bluntly stated.
in 2002, received a video in the mail that allegedly depicted R. Kelly having sex with an underage girl. “Dozens of girls — not one, not two,dozens — with harrowing lawsuits. The videotapes — and not just one videotape,numerous videotapes. And not Tommy Lee/Pam Anderson, Kardashian fun video. You watch the video for which he was indicted and there is the disembodied look of the rape victim. He orders her to call him Daddy. He urinates in her mouth and instructs her at great length on how to position herself to receive his ‘gift.’ It’s a rape that you’re watching. So we’re not talking about rock-star misbehavior, which men or women can do. We’re talking about predatory behavior. Their lives were ruined.” - spin.com
The above is to give you an highlight of what R Kelly is being accused of. Yes! It is not fresh but the writer feels it can't be easily forgotten. Also make reference to Huffington post which was headlined "Remember all the gross accusation against R Kelly? "
