R Kelly Dropped from Music Fest After Protests


After two bands and a radio sponsor pull out R. Kelly is dropped as the headliner of an Ohio music festival…

Columbus, Ohio’s Fashion Meets Music Festival axed R. Kelly from the line-up after local bands Damn the Witch Siren, Saintseneca and radio station WCBE 90.5 FM pulled out of the music fest citing R Kelly's reputation as a sexual predator [click here if you missed that].

In a strongly worded statement to the media Saintseneca explained,
“We feel R. Kelly’s selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault. “We feel it is an affront to all survivors, who are already often overlooked and forgotten in our society.”
Saintseneca also announced plans to perform at a benefit concert for survivors of sexual abuse on the same day as the music festival.

Add that with the growing backlash on social media and R. Kelly was out.

Event organizers said in a statement released today,
“We wanted to make sure we heard the Columbus listeners… to make a statement and support the city we live in.”

Those fast-tailed teenage girls are all innocent, huh? Their families didn't encourage them to fuck Kelly in exchange for money, gifts, and studio time either, huh? I know the REAL stories behind this.

Fast tail teenagers exist, it takes an ADULT to say no and do the right thing, leave those fast tail teenagers alone. The minute the adult entertains or part-takes, they become predators. R.Kelly is a lowlife piece of shit predator/pedophile. He should be burned and locked to hell up.

What if the families were consistently encouraging their teen girls to sleep with R.Kelly for status and gifts? You keep missing THAT part.

Hmmmm must have rejected or not paid his illuminati dues. Was he convicted of these crimes. Slippery slope. There should probably be a whole lot of boycotting them. So many artists supposedly do this

My .02 Cents... said...

11:27 - Then all of the ADULTS should all be prosecuted.

I don't care how "fast" they are, leave them alone.
Or, just wait until they're 18.
A 40 year old man and a 16 year old girl don't have a damn thing to "talk" about.

White mainstream Hollywood is definitely on the move with kicking out black celebs . but I hope the world see them as the fraud culture vultures they really happen to be. People please realize that there are other Hollywood's in the world !!!

FU$K YOU @ 11:15 a.m. Yes, "fast-tailed teenage girls are INNOCENT." Want to know why; because they are GIRLS. They are NOT WOMEN. And if what you say about their parents prostituting them out is correct, then that is all the more reason why R "I Molest and Urinate on Young Girls" Kelly should have avoided sleeping with them.

Ignorant-ass-trout-mouth mothafucka. Yeah, I said it.

Young Black girls become fast-tailed for only these reasons:

There's NO father or father figure in the home balancing out parental influence, duties, raising, care-giving, and love. When young men understand that the girl(s) they're interested in have an active father in the home, their entire outlook and behaviors with the girl(s) change for the better, in my opinion.

These girls have seen their mothers lay up with multiple men in exchange for money, gifts, food, paid rents, artificial love, etc.

These girls have been touched by older/other men or women and are turned out.

Honestly, I've never met a young girl who was fast that didn't experience one of these things I mentioned.

My .02 Cents... said...

@11:50 - Exactly. He knew which "fast tailed girls" to pursue and prey upon. That's what predators do.

Real parents would chop off his balls and shove them down his throat if he even tried that bs.

Even if that's true...these are young girls who cannot legally give consent...who are not mature...who are being betrayed by their family and that child molester. He has GROWN AZZ women throwing LEGAL PUSS at him...plus he was married.

He's 1 million percent wrong...and needs to pay for his crimes. I pray you don't have kids...your mind is messed up.

If other adults are involved they're accessory to the CRIME of sexual abuse.

Some of you people are sick.

A 30, 40, 50 year old MAN preys on young girls and it's THEIR fault and not his?

We're talking about a man who hangs out at the SCHOOL YARD stalking middle school girls!

As as for some of the parents who pimped their kids out, they should be up under the jail, too. Selling your daughter to R Kelly for a quick payday is no different from a crackhead selling their kid to the local pedophiles for drug money. It's all sick, depraved, and DISGUSTING.

If R Kelly was preying on young boys, the reaction would be completely different. SMDH

Some women out here have such low self-esteem that they would turn on an underage victim of a pedophile's abuse rather than turn their rage and jealousy to the actual abuser.

Yes, I did say these women are jealous, and it's sick that they are. Because only somebody who is not right in the head would blame the victim instead of blaming the pedophile.

These are the same women who will get mad at their daughters and put them out on the street when the girls work up the courage to tell the truth and report the abuse.

These sad ass pieces of shit will continue to deal with the pedophile, exposing their other children to the same abuse.

Anonymous said...

The majority of the young prostitutes and underage streetwalkers on the game got there because some unfit mother kicked them out of the house after the girl had been abused and the mother accused the daughter of trying to steal her man.

Anonymous said...

Yes...WTF is up with these motherfuckers in here that love blaming the victims of child molestation? Like really? Kill yourselves because if my child tells me some Grown Ass man pulled her draws down I'd give that nigga hot grits service when he'd least expect it! I don't take kindly to simpletons that condone abuse. R Kelly is reaping his karma with interest cause his very slick ass thought he could dodge accountability. You can pay expensive attorneys to keep you out of prison, but God always deals with the wicked!!!

Anonymous said...

I'll agree that R. Kelly should be locked up. Only under the condition that EVERY other director, actor, singer, rapper, or athlete who rapes little girls and boys gets the EXACT same treatment. Until then let's stop acting like R. Kelly is the first, worst, or only one to do this horrible thing.

Saintseneca is a local folkband. If Kellz was a headliner,they probably didn't sell enough tickets. These mofos didn't pull because if Kellz, there was an opportunity for them to walk due to low ticket sales and they used Kellz as an excuse.

Nobody is acting like he's the only one. The thing is, there is clear evidence and he's done so much of it, and gotten away with no punishment.

It's stupid to say, "let's not call him out because he's not the only one". Why bother prosecuting and locking up ANY criminals then, since we all know there are so many people out there doing dirt and committing crimes who haven't been caught yet.

it amazes me when people pass the blame. yes some parents are terrible and allow and sometimes encourage their kids to do the wrong things BUT as a grown ass man he should have never been in position to be around or want someone else's child. this man is a pedo and we all know it. the girls mothers where no good and i wonder if he would let a growm man penetrate his children ( i think not and hope not) save our kids not expose them!!!!

Anonymous said...

I think R. Kelly's victim parents and family should be exposed to the same ridicule as he for pimping out their young under age loved ones. During his trial I could never understand how all the responsible adults in that girls life at the time failed her, knowing she was hanging tight with R. Kelly.

I'm so sorry that you had to go through that. This is exactly why it burns me up when people start blaming the victim instead of being RESPONSIBLE ADULTS they are supposed to be and holding the molesters, rapists, AND their ENABLERS accountable.

I'm glad you have managed to keep your head up and are working towards your goals inspite of that negative situation.

Don't pay these ignorant fools no mind; and ALWAYS know that it was NEVER your fault.

R.Kelly is an easy target because he's the known celebrity. Parents virtually beg Hollywood to take their children in exchange for fame and money--and it seems like majority of the comments are going right along with 'blame the famous person' game. R.Kelly is not exempt from what he did, but love, guidance, and protection starts at home. There's no way in hell I'd be hanging out with a grown ass man and I'm only 15. The fuck? At 15 or however old these girls were, they were supposed to working a 4 hour shift at McDonald's or on the phone with their girlfriends giggling about making eye contact with the cutest in school. I wasn't there and I don't know what happened, but I know that as a mother, my 15 year old DAUGHTER would not be allowed to "hang out" with a grown nigga and his entourage, famous or not.

@2:41, there are 15 year old girls who hang out with REGULAR adult men every day.

When I was in high school, I knew several girls who bragged about having a 24 or 26 year old boyfriend, and these girls were only 14, 15, 16.

What 24 year old man has time or desire to "hang out" with a 15 year old? Why doesn't anybody ever ask him why he's spending time with a bunch of kids, instead of accusing the girl of being "fast"?

She's a young girl, she doesn't know any better. He's a GROWN MAN. He knows it's wrong. He knows it's illegal, but he does it anyway.

And that's the truth @ 12:57pm....Say it again!!!

Now if only these fucked up artists would stop working with this illtierate Pied Piper of Pissin, he'd fade into a black hole. Sad that many black women still support this pedophiles music. He was the adult and in a position of authority. He used that to sexually abuse and easily manipulate children, since he was a celebrity. I read his writings about his family and how he grew up. Fucking ghastly!! He was sexually abused his damn self and exposed to things no child should...now he's the predator. He should've been locked up eons ago, with his weird sick ass!!! I won't buy shit or listen to anything he's affiliated with and neither should other people. He's the Roman Polanski of the music industry and folks keep giving him a fucking pass.

This ugly ass, triangular head, owl-faced, big Jew nose, Tic Tac dick having motherfucka should be BEHIND BARS! But no! He iis an ugly Jew cracka protected by Hollyweird, he and that mongoloid Chinese daughter/wife of his!

What about Roman Polanski???? That ugly ass Polish Jew honky with his Cheetos cheese curl dick should have been in jail! Nasty ass dog smelling honky! But NO! He still making films!!!

Both of them crackas should be placed in jail cells with inmates that hate pedophiles and have their pasty white flat asses butt raped! Naw, scratch that! Stick both of them in a cell with Fleece Johnson wearing no drawers and lotion squirted up their asses!

umm, hello? As a 15 year old, you may not think this way. Youre thinking this from an ADULT perspective, which totally renders your sentiment as moot.

You know why some 15 year olds keep company with 40 yr old men, and some dont?

IT'S CALLED PARENTING.

its pretty pathetic that you grown black bitches stand up for rkelly. He doesnt want you, becuase youre waaaaaay too old for him. He'd rather have your little sister...the 10 year old

he's a child molester. I feel sorry for bitches like you. You would throw your own child out of your shack if your man fuck her, wouldnt you? It would NEVER be his fault...you know the adult in the situation.

Ok!! Look!
There are laws in place. If a girl is under 18, leave her alone! I don't care if the parents are pushing them on a man, or any previous unfortunate experiences make them go for older men, or especially being "fast tailed", or "smelling there selves too soon" as the elders would say. All this and any other reason is just legally unacceptable. So all these excuses and reasons people are on here giving in his defense, are just sick, and your defense of R. Kelly just makes you look suspect. There are too many beautiful women, available for this man. What's wrong with a woman of legal age? He has a fetish that's not healthy, he needs to be locked up. Or go be apart of a culture where it's ok to be with under aged girls.

Stop justifying this man's actions just because of his status. He's a pedophile, he's scum, he doesn't even hide it! And people have the nerve to make excuses for his behavior!

Wake up! !

I bet he never mentioned he would urinate on her ... yet he did.

Sexual assaults still happen more than they should to young teens because no matter how wrong the full-fledged 21+ years predator is, the girl always gets blamed. There's no right in his or any other predator's behavior being excused and their being held blameless while the molested take all the heat.

But this is the evil world we live in today.
