R. Kelly, Target Of A Petition Banning His Music

rkelly

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.”

What are your thoughts on this? Do you still support R. Kelly after his creepy past?

    INSTEAD OF CRITICISING R. KELLY WE NEED TO PRAY FOR HIM. THOSE OF YOU WITHOUT SIN
    THROW THE FIRST STONE. WHERE IS THE RESPONSIBLE OF THE PARENTS FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND
    THEIR BEHAVIOR. IF YOU HAVE A TEENAGE LESS THAN 17 YOU AS A PARENT NEEDS TO KNOW WHERE
    YOUR CHILD IS AND WHOM YOUR CHILD IS HANGING OUT WITH. STOP BLAMING R. KELLY FOR
    THESE YOUNG GIRLS COMING AROUND LOOKING FOR THAT TYPE OF BEHAVIOR BECAUSE THEY LIE
    ABOUT THEIR AGES. YES, I DO AGREE R. KELLY MAY NEED HELP WITH A PROBLEM WITH YOUNG GIRLS, BUT DID ANYONE EVER ASK THE QUESTION WHY HE DOES IT?
