Racial justice organization, Color of Change is calling for RCA to drop R. Kelly, immediately.
The docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly sent waves of shock and disgust on social media after the first two episodes aired on Lifetime Thursday evening. The documentary producer, Dream Hampton, who also serves on the board for Color of Change, is demanding that Kelly’s long-time label part ways with the Grammy-winning artist.
Brandi Collins-Dexter, Senior Campaign Director at Color Of Change, released a statement calling for RCA to “believe these women or continue to enable the abuse of Black women and girls for the sake of profit.”
Episodes 3 and 4 air Friday on Lifetime and will cover Kelly’s trial and how the criminal justice system failed victims. Saturday wraps up the 6-part docu-series with episodes 5 and 6 talking about what is going on currently, which Hampton says are the “most important.”
Do you think RCA should drop R. Kelly? Are you able to separate R. Kelly’s alleged acts from his music?
