Surviving R Kelly sheds light on an enabled sexual predator

Chance The Rapper Apologizes For Working With R. Kelly

The six-part documentary series premiered on Thursday, January 3, airing each episode on a nightly basis, and now Surviving R Kelly has been given a United Kingdom release date.

In Surviving R. Kelly, we see a mother of one of Kelly's alleged victims reunite with her daughter and stage a rescue from a Beverly Hills hotel. "Here's this person who I was great friends with, who's a great person, and all this is happening to her now". "And I felt really torn because, you know, my faith and my morals told me I needed to come forward because what he did was wrong". What she has done with this six-part series is given the viewer the experience I have had for 18 years, of sitting with a woman who is doing the hardest thing imaginable, telling you about her sexual abuse, going on the record, crying on my shoulder, Yamiche.

In the documentary, women portray R. Kelly as manipulative, violent and focused on young girls, allegedly demanding they call him 'daddy'.

Kelly has denied all allegations against him. The three-part documentary sent shockwaves throughout audiences with its gripping and harrowing recounts of Kelly's alleged sexual abuse - told by seven alleged survivors - over the last 20-plus years.

In response, John said: 'I took a photo with and worked with Harvey on several occasions before his abuse was known to me and the rest of the world.

Kelly persuasively argues-proves, really- that, societally speaking, we have made an unforgivable pact with Kelly, a musical genius who was able to hide his evil behavior in plain sight for decades because he committed his crimes against black girls. "It's just prevalent in all media", he said. He does, however, also acknowledge that black women are "exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people", and explicitly states, "Making a song with R. Kelly was a mistake". "I didn't value the accusers' stories because they were black".

Those who understand R. Kelly is a serial predator, who is responsible for multiple statutory rape allegations, will be enraged after news his music sales have increased substantially.

Over the past 25 years, R. Kelly has sold 60 million albums, sold out national tours and accrued millions of streams and radio plays.

Like so many #MeToo monsters, R. Kelly is someone "we all knew about", but his case makes clear what a gross euphemism that is.
