Lifetime airs R Kelly doc despite legal threat

Chance The Rapper Apologizes For Working With R. Kelly

"Surviving R. Kelly" features interviews with multiple women who allege that Kelly had sex with them when they were underage, physically and emotionally abused them, and sought to control women by regulating when they ate, used the restroom, and contacted their families. Last year, Spotify removed R. Kelly's music from their curated playlists as part of a reconsidered policy against music promoting hate or abuse.

Surviving R Kelly is from Kreativ Inc, the prodco backed by Banijay Group's Bunim/Murray Productions, and is exec produced by critic Dream Hampton, Brie Miranda Bryant, Joel Karsberg and Jesse Daniels.

Those girls, now women, are the focus of Surviving R. Kelly, an extremely effective piece of entertainment journalism-though it may be more accurate to think of it as an extremely effective piece of activist entertainment journalism.

Airing on Lifetime, the six-hour series features interviews from several of his accusers, #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, his brothers, and ex-wife Andrea Kelly, who alleges R. Kelly has committed sexual abuse and acts of pedophilia across several decades. The resolution for R. Kelly is to "sue everybody who had anything to do with this". It is unclear if it was deleted by the social media platform.

With Surviving R. Kelly wrapping up Saturday night, the discussion over the disgraced singer online turned from criticism of his actions to wondering about the friends, family, and colleagues who enabled him throughout 20 years of questionable activities. The R&B singer denies it. "I had papers forged for them". It was just a quick little ceremony, nothing elaborate. "Robert said 'I do.' Him and Aaliyah". Just every day wear.

Smith giggled while telling the story as if he showed little or no remorse. I didn't have anyone to talk to. The episode included an interview with Chance the Rapper, where he said that he regretted ever collaborating with R. Kelly, as Rolling Stone points out.

R. Kelly clearly needs professional help.

Non-for-profit advocacy organisation Color of Change tweeted the "strength of black women & girls is determined by how much suffering we can endure".
