John Legend Talks Being Called a Hypocrite For Appearing in R. Kelly Doc

Singer Songwriter John Legend attends the 2016 American Music Awards held in Los Angeles, California on November20, 2016 at the Microsoft Theater

John Legend is responding to R. Kelly sympathizers who’ve labeled him a hypocrite for appearing in the Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly but also taking a photo with disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.

The photo features Legend, Weinstein and Legend’s wife, model Chrissy Teigen. Twitter user Anika Tellis posted the photo along with the caption, “@johnlegend please explain?? I dont remember you publicly denouncing this man!!! @cthagod.”

Legend responded, saying the photo was taken long before the sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein were made public.

The “Ordinary People” singer went on to say supporters of the Chicago crooner should simply admit they don’t believe the accusers rather than attempt to discredit him.

The night of the Surviving R. Kelly premiere, Legend tweeted that he had no problem taking a stand against a “serial child rapist,” like Kelly.
