R. Kelly is STILL getting slack for his bad behavior how many years later. And rightfully so, says BK Nation!
BK Nation is a non-profit organization founded by activist Kevin Powell as the head of a petition to boycott Kelly and his music.
After a Village Voice article exposed very graphic details of R. Kelly’s past sexual abuse allegations, Powell decided to step up and take action against the provocative R&B singer and he’s encouraging everyone to boycott Kelly’s music.
In addition to that, Powell is especially calling on Black men to boycott Kelly.
Check out the excerpt from the BK Nation petition from Change.org below:
“We at BK NATION are calling on radio stations, video channels, music publications and websites, members of the entertainment industry, and men and women of all backgrounds to sign our petition COMPLETELY BOYCOTTING R. Kelly’s musical and artistic career until he is completely honest about who is, publicly apologizes for this behavior cited from many sources, gets extended counseling, and takes a very public stand and actions against sexual violence in any form.
“Kevin Powell, president and cofounder of BK Nation, is especially asking men, including Black men, to join us in taking a very public stand against any form of sexual violence and assault against women, girls, and children. We at BK Nation believe that silence is this matter is agreement and support. And we believe that if we give R. Kelly a pass then we are also saying anyone who commits sexual violence, famous or not, should get a pass as well.”
