have you heard about the #muterkelly campaign?
Looks like it’s time to get “The Pied Piper of R&Pee” up out of here…
The organization, Women of Color, has announced they have joined the Time’s Up campaign called #MuteRKelly. The group issued a statement, which was followed by R. Kelly’s response.
Women of Color (WOC) shared an open letter online, which calls for a boycott against Kelly, citing the sexual assault and sexual abuse allegations against the singer.
WOC announced they were joining the #MuteRKelly campaign, demanding investigations into the abuse of women of color at the hand of Kelly for over two decades.
WOC’s statement reads, “The scars of history make certain that we are not interested in persecuting anyone without just cause. With that said, we demand appropriate investigations and inquiries into the allegations of R. Kelly’s abuse made by women of color and their families for over two decades now. And we declare with great vigilance and a united voice to anyone who wants to silence us – their time is up.
The campaign is calling for RCA Records, Spotify, Apple Music, Ticketmaster and the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, where Kelly is scheduled to perform in May, to “join us and insist on safety and dignity for women of all kinds.”

Kelly has a lengthy history of alleged sexual misconduct with under-aged women, including his annulled marriage to singer Aaliyah when she was just 15-years-old.
Kelly has been acquitted of sexual assault in the past, following a long trial based on a video of the singer having sex with underage women. There have also been reports the singer ‘paid off’ other young women for their silence.
Kelly has faced multiple accusations over the past year of running a ‘sex cult’, keeping young women under his control in his homes in Atlanta and Chicago.
The online campaign also mentioned Bill Cosby in their statement, who was recently found guilty in his sexual assault retrial of aggravated indecent assault.
WOC stated, “The recent court decision against Bill Cosby is one step towards addressing these ills but it is just a start. We call on people everywhere to join with us to insist on a world in which women of all kinds can pursue their dreams free from sexual assault, abuse and predatory behavior.”
