On Sunday, R. Kelly released “I Admit,” a song he hoped would clear the air surrounding allegations that he is a serial sexual abuser and his relationships with young women, his own molestation claims and his inability to read. Although some fans offered positive feedback to the 19-minute tell-all, several prominent celebrities shared their unease with the content of the song, including #MeToo founder Tarana Burke and rapper Talib Kweli.

Despite the 20 years of sexual abuse claims made against the self-proclaimed Pied Piper, it appears that many fans put aside the stories of alleged victims and continue to support his music. With the rise of the #TimesUp movement, some are using their platforms to speak out and demand corporations and fans mute R. Kelly.

Check out what some people had to say about the song below.
