Sony Music has just now officially dropped R. Kelly from their label.
It’s no surprise that R. Kelly has been facing a series of unfortunate events these past few weeks. It was only a few weeks ago when Lifetime released their groundbreaking documentary “Surviving R. Kelly.” In which, the series shed light on R. Kelly’s strange encounters and abusive predatory relationships that negatively affected the lives of many young women. Now, to add insult to injury, R. Kelly’s professional career as singer and performing artist is officially dead. And he definitley wants his vengeance from Lifetime. As reported by Variety, Sony is now permanently severing ties with R. Kelly.
Many people have since taken to Twitter in support of the company’s decision. Some of the voices include:
FINALLY. Hats off to the women of #MuteRKelly ❤️✊🏾
