Why cancel R Kelly but not others?

Hello,

 

I as you may know am not one to jump on the racism campaign, However the attacks on R Kelly and people he has worked with are unjustifiable. Why is it ok for Garry Glitter, Rolf Harris , XXXtentacion and 6-9 to have their music on screaming services no questions asked but we must quit ;mute R Kelly'? surely art is separate from the artist or it is not. There is clearly a double standard here. Either they should remove all these people or none at all.

I don't know why you bring up racism when the first people to be cancelled in metoo were a bunch of white men :rip: Not exclusively but more than a handful

Garry Glitter - old British man, currently serving a 15 year sentence in prison

Rolf Harris - old Australian men, served 3 years in prison

Isn't the other one dead? :skull:

 

Besides, none of them were as popular as R Kelly, at least in the US. There's obviously gonna be a bigger reaction around him

Because there was a documentary about him recently

 

If you want to cancel more white men, go make documentaries about them

Because R kelly is iconic, not to mention he got away with a lot of **** in the past. The GP are taking this personally because the justice system and/or karma didn't serve R Kelly right like it did for the others you mentioned.
