Tank, Omarion and Others Denounce R. Kelly After Documentary Airing

R. Kelly Symbolically Banned From Philadelphia by City Council

After the three-day airing of the Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, several people have spoken out against R. Kelly including R&B stars Tank, Ne-Yo and Omarion.

The six-part documentary, which was produced by cultural critic and activist dream hampton, shed light on the singer’s alleged predatory behavior and sexual misconduct/abuse.

Although Kelly has denied any wrongdoing, the more than 50 interviews including his brothers, former employees, alleged victims and their parents have many people joining the #MuteRKelly campaign.

“It’s so dark and sad and traumatic. I wish that [R. Kelly] would have gotten help… Maybe he could’ve gotten help when he was 30, or you know, 29 when the Aaliyah stuff broke.” – dream hampton

In an interview with SiriusXM’s Karen Hunter, hampton shared some discoveries she made during the process of making the in-depth series.

Since the series premiered, Color Of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization, has called for action for the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer to be dropped by RCA Records.  In addition, calls to the sex-abuse hotline increased by 27 percent.

Check out what other celebrities had to say about their discomfort of hearing about the more than two decades of alleged abuse.
