    Has anyone ever bother to question the things that are happening to R. Kelly. So if you are a Kellz fan past or present, or not anymore based on the docu-series. In 1994 did you see the infamous tape? Did you know about Ailyah? If you didn't you lived under a rock. So how is it that he was celebrated throughout the years. Now the same people are condemning him and screaming mute R. Kelly. Why? Lady GaGa freaky ass knew what he was about just as everyone else did. I don't agree with abuse of young victims, but we are all to blame. He was successful because the mass majority supported him and many people became wealthy and benefited from being associated with him. Question: Where is the money from his spiked sales and streaming going. Who owns the masters now? His music is great as well as his talent. I will not erase a decade of good music and a legacy because of people feeling he is soooo bad all of a sudden. The man is 52 now I think if all this shit was going on someone would have called the cops and filed some sort of charges. Be careful of the media they can fuck your head up whenever they want all while cashing big checks.

    Kelly should have been in prison years ago along with gis team..his alleged victim Lisa..and all others who knew and participated in the rape of the 14 yr old...but when her parent take the stand and say its not thier daughter and have the child say the same...well... here comes the acquittal....The fans..the black community continued to embrace him afterwards knowing who he was..allowing thier young women to be mentored by Kelly...im not claiming Kelly did not abuse these women...however i think many endured it looking for the come up and when it did not turn out as expected...BAM..docuseries...books..interviews...lawsuits...why did not one of these women press criminal charges? But will file a civil suit for monetary gain...Kelly is not the only perpetrator here....WAKE UP

    Why r pedophiles like r kelly not locked up when they been doing these horrific acts for years but legendary rappers like tupac never did anything like this but he stood up for his people and the black females because his role model was his mum hence he made a song dedicated dear mamma yet not only did he get accused but he went to jail falsely and his life pritty much ended a year later after he went prison but predators like r kelly who abuse women and take advantage of them are still free and using there name to carry on perusing women.

Tons and tons of people talking but the system isn’t doing a damn thing. If he’s not put away it will make other men out there think this crap is okay.

    BLACK PEOPLE when are WE going to wake up and see whats really going on.
    Why NOW is WHITE MEDIA TARGETING R KELLY? The same reasons they targeted Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson, Prince, & any other BLACK MAN who was trying to ACCOMPLISH something big. Trust & believe, white people don't care about the well being of black kids but BLACK PEOPLE do & they know this. WHITE PEOPLE would've castrated R Kelly the moment a rumor would've started with him sleeping with white girls. The destruction of BLACK PEOPLE is BLACK PEOPLE with white people at the helms. They feed us a story & we run with it. We condemn our own without proven facts. You see everyday how the media can distort videos to make us see what we want. WHITE PEOPLE CONTROL WHITE MEDIA/TELEVISION. Anytime Black people start standing up for themselves, the powers of be steps in to contain the situation. Remind yourselves of Dave Chapelle, Katt Williams, & DMX. When these men started speaking truth...they deemed them crazy and we ran with it. No other race turns on their own people even if the alleged allegations are true. BLACK PEOPLE WAKE UP!!! DIVIDE+CONQUER=DESTRUCTION of BLACK PEOPLE. They have infiltrated our communities, churches, and school with drugs infestations, incarcerated of black men, senseless killings of black people, & now this lgbt movement. This is a distraction to cause discord & mistrust and what better way in doing that...turn black people against each other by the very thing we value the most...OUR CHILDREN. WHITE PEOPLE been using blacks against each other the moment they enslaved our ancestors and brought them to this racist country. BLACK People WE HAVE TO DO BETTER. They use us & our information that we put on social media to keep us divided and in chaos. White people been raping and sleeping with children with all their perversions. Catholic churches & politicians been raping, molesting, and sleeping with children & NO DAMN LIFETIME MOVIED. Lo behold, lets put this out regarding R Kelly and tear this black man down. Lets destroy him so that ALL BLACK MAN know their place.
    Wake up black America they are finding ways to tear us down & keeping us there. Black Women we NEED to UNIFY together & with BLACK MEN.

    I got to applaud the entire crew and ladies who have come forward. And i hope, that teen who was in the sex tape by now should be an adult would come forward and brave enough o put this man behind bars. Probably only then, the groomed ladies who turned slave would have a chance to escape and reunite with family eh. sigh.

    This is just like the Gloria Trevi case. Everyone, please look up on that case. It will give you all the answers you are looking for. And R Kelly (I don't like even saying his name) should be in jail. I mean, there's evidence, proof, a tape for sake. He was caught in the act. Just like when murderers get recorded and robbers too, IT'S CAUGHT ON CAMERA. Doesn't matter if people deny it, say it wasn't them, or is lying about their age, IT'S ON CAMERA, and they are facts.
