Tank Ne-Yo and Columbus Short Denounce R. Kelly


R&B singers Ne-Yo and Tank and actor Columbus Short denounce R. Kelly following the conclusion of the Lifetime documentary 'Surviving R. Kelly...'





I lot of artists, song writers, producers, record execs, etc are very confused as to how to respond to what they’ve seen and heard. We’ve all been inspired by this man. We’ve all been witnesses to his musical genius. We have shaped and molded talent we sign after his musical image. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into this man that it’s hard for us to let go. I no longer have that issue. I whole heartedly apologize for not coming to this realization sooner. I CANOT separate the music from the monster! My 3 black daughters won’t let me. What hurts even more are the facilitators around him. His team, his record company, the promoters, the radio stations! There has to be a line drawn. Enough has to be enough at some point. Who are we saying is worth protecting if we let this continue? I choose the lives of these young black girls! I’m sick to my stomach! Let me also say this! There are more men guilty of these crimes! Lets make sure none of them slip through the cracks every again! You are no king because kings don’t treat queens like this! #RnBMoney #TheGeneral

Next on Lifetime. I didn't survive Charlie Sheen. I'm HIV positive. When winning isn't winning.

This is what Lifetime will be showing next surviving Harvey Weinstein, surviving Woody Allen, surviving MOlester Moonves, surviving Kevin Spacey, surviving Stephen Collins, surviving Jeffrey Epstein, surviving Louis Ck. I will be rubbing my hands together waiting.

7:20 I would like to believe that. I wish the masses would use this same energy for these Caucasian men.
We may never here anything else about Harvey. On the "cool", he is quietly getting charges dropped left and right. It needs to be equality across the board with these abusers. But the same rules do not apply with us. And as he should, they got Bill Cosby sitting up in jail and everyone else is still in the free world. That's not cool at all.

I hope rapists of all creeds, colors, cultures etc die slowly and painfully. I'm trying to understand the logic though... Should rape Kelly have been left alone because white men get away with it? That's why no one has heard of the others y'all named... Oh wait a minute, we have. Thier allegations are very public as well. Don't think rape Kelly is in jail. So, Black victims need to just let it go because the white man gets to do it unpunished. We are further victimizing the Black man who rapes. Black girls/women are expandable. If he makes music you like, plays a sport or makes a TV show that's popular, done allow that rape rapiness to ruin that GOOD MAN. It's a conspiracy to bring them down because they deserve to be able to rape because is the good entertainment they've put out. Please ignore the screams in the background... It's part of a soundtrack they're working on. It's the same willful blindness of Orange orangutan followers.

Damn, I'm downloading R Kelly discography now FOR FREE because I know it won't be available soon.

Anyway, times have changed and I hope ALL THESE PEDOS ARE EXPOSED! Child sexual abuse is way too prevalent. It's a travesty the way grown ass men lust after children. And create a new cycle of sexual abuse and confusion and shame.

I remember I lived in NYC when the R Kelly sex tape came out and they were selling it on the corners...I remember people commenting on how "fast" and "sexually experienced" the teenage girl was. Sadly, nobody really saw the girl as a victim but as a willing participant.

I just want to remind everybody here who first stands up to say well what about the white men? Are they doing this to the white men? For those, who immediately turn to point fingers to ensure blame is assigned but never look at the black girl victim that was just destroyed and whose life WILL NEVER be worth living. We don't like to talk about that. The systematic way Black women are told by own people WE DONT MATTER just by the way it’s being handled. If these were white women or EVEN light skinned women, don’t you think the world would look at this differently? But guess what, this just plain ole black women. To the world and our own damn people, ain’t much to talk about! Look at what ya'll talkin bout here....assigning stupid blame on everybody EXCEPT the ONE’s WHO DID THIS SHIT!!! Yes, keep doing this and telling your daughters “you really don't matter”.

RKelly is nothing but a dirty pimp. He hangs with known pimps in Chicago and Atl. He treats girls like baby prostitutes. He is a pedophile and people know more than what is being said! #lockhimup Where is George Daniel? What he did to his daughter is worse of all. Investigate this mf!

Cosign 9:09,10:03 am, Columbus Short thinks we all forgot about his mess, and Ne-Yo encourages a woman to get her tubes tied then dumps her. Every body's jumping on the band wagon.
