Another L for Kells.
R. Kelly is at the center of a large discussion about sexual assault, mental health, and accountability. The legendary R&B singer's penchant for young girls and his eccentric sexual desires have been well documented throughout the decades. Still, Lifetime's new docuseries Surviving R. Kelly complied all of the evidence and reaffirmed its importance. Since the show debuted last week, celebrities from John Legend to Chance the Rapper have come out to admonish Kelly's behavior. Kelly maintains that he is innocent, and there has even been a sizeable increase in the R&B singer's streaming numbers since the docuseries dropped.
R. Kelly is planning to clap back with a website called Surviving Lies. Before the site launches in full though, a Facebook page was made to discredit the accusers. As reported by TMZ, that page has been taken down. The page was taken down by the social media giant after screenshots of a conversation between Kelly and one of the young accusers was posted. Allegedly, the young accuser was calling Kelly "daddy" repeatedly. "The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed," a spokesperson for Facebook told TMZ. "We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other’s private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we’re aware.”
