The GP drags Kendrick for R-kelly's support

As fans weighed in on who should be canceled, alongside Robert Kelly,throughout the airing of Lifetime’s eye-opening docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, celebrities from all calibers provided their two cents while the internet rallied against those remaining silent. After so many declined to speak, fans sought out artists who’ve formerly worked with the disgraced Chicago singer or have supported him in other ways.

During the early stages of #MuteRKelly, the activists behind the movement initially urged radio stations to stop playing Robert’s greatest hits. After push-back, it was suggested that they go after streaming platforms. To show their solidarity, Spotify removed the 51-year-old’s music from their playlists, stating that while his music will still be available for streaming, Spotify won’t actively market it. “We don’t censor content because of an artist’s or creator’s behavior, but we want our editorial decisions -- what we choose to program -- to reflect our values. When an artist or creator does something that is especially harmful or hateful, it may affect the ways we work with or support that artist or creator,” 

 

However, West Coast icon Kendrick Lamar campaigned against it and even threatened to remove his music from Spotify. Eventually, the streaming service backed down.

Gaga didn't ever speak up for R. Smelly nor was she giving companies ultimatums over him. They're completely different.

Thank U, Next.

Where's the outrage, ATRL?

They also said they were outraged for R Kellys victims but didn't care that Gaga's response comforted them, so it's clear what ATRL really wants to happen.

If two had already apologized then all of the celebrities involved with R.Kelly should follow suit. Y'all wanted the outrage then y'all better come for every single one of them.

And this is in no was saying that Kendrick Lamar supports sexual assault. It’s simply a point to say that black men care about the black race as a whole, that they ignore the additional struggles of black women.

I feel this is so true today
Not everyone is like that but some black men tend to do that rn!
I would even compare it to hetero men as a whole that don't care if their fav rapper does something sexist or homophobic *cough*eminem*cough* and they still support him!
SicK!
