John Legend Proud To Blast “Serial Child Rapist” R. Kelly

The first two episodes of Surviving R. Kelly aired on Thursday evening (January 3) and there was no scarcity of social media outrage. The sequence dove into element in regards to the a number of sexual assault allegations the R&B singer has confronted over time and in addition explored the sexual relationship he had with an underaged Aaliyah. 

Singer John Legend, who seems within the documentary, joined the dialogue on Twitter and deflected any reward he was receiving because of his participation.

“To everybody telling me how brave I’m for showing within the doc, it didn’t really feel dangerous in any respect. I consider these ladies and don’t give a fuck about defending a serial baby rapist. Easy choice.

Legend provided just a little extra perception into the making of the sequence and credited filmmaker Dream Hampton for bringing the sequence to life.

“We should all thank my friend @dreamhampton for her very necessary work to create #SurvivingRKelly,” he wrote. “These survivors deserved to be lifted up and heard. I hope it gets them closer to some kind of justice.”

Legend added, “Also I’m happy to support the work of people like my friends at @ALongWalkHome who have been speaking out on behalf of the survivors for a long time.” 

But not all people is glad Kelly’s alleged victims are getting a voice. Kelly’s lawyer, Brian Nix, fired off a authorized letter earlier this week threatening to sue if this system aired. Evidently, Lifetime was undeterred.

The sequence continues on Friday (January 4) at 9 p.m. ET.
