Taraji P.Henson went on Twitter this week to clarify her comments about R.Kelly being treated unfairly.
In a now-deleted Instagram story, Taraji P.Henson spoke out about R.Kelly. She compared the current scandal around R.Kelly to the treatment of disgraced Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein. She asked how many #MUTERKelly posts there were, opposed to how many #MUTEWeinstein posts. And, this my friend got her a lot of backlash on Twitter.
What people like little Ms.Taraji P Henson fail to realize is that no one really sided with Weinstein when the allegations came out. We started a mute movement for R. Kelly because so many people like her are defending him. pic.twitter.com/ypg9S3Fmyg

So upon all the calculations that Taraji P Henson did in ‘Hidden Figures’ she still came up with the wrong answer about this R Kelly situation.

Henson is not the only celebrity who is under-fire for defending R.Kelly. Erykah Badu has also been getting dragged on Twitter for saying that she still loves R.Kelly. In addition to that, pretty much every person who has worked with R.Kelly is under attack, including Chance the Rapper and Lady Gaga. However, they probably should be. R.Kelly has had his predatorial past enabled for the last few decades. If you show support for a predator by defending or working with them, then you deserve the dragging. Hopefully, Taraji P.Henson learns from this mess!
But, what do you think of what Taraji P.Henson said? Do you agree that she deserves a good dragging? Drop a comment to let us know and keep visiting Hypefresh for more news!
