“Surviving R. Kelly” caused quite the discussion. Opinions are aplenty regarding allegations surviving the singer and reports over the years.

While many are standing by the accusers, and choosing to #MuteRKelly, there are still those who are choosing to support him.

One of the common arguments his supporters like to refer to is the allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein.

And although Weinstein was hit with charges months ago, R. Kelly’s supporters feel he’s being treated unfairly.

Taraji P. Henson may feel the same way.

    Whew chile the ignorance. Harvey literally picked up multiple charges. And you can’t mute a director. But what they did do is cancel his upcoming movies and blacklist him. Now he’s broke and probably going to jail. I’d say he paid way more for his crimes than R Kelly has.

    Can we stop worrying about what the f-ck the white community will or won’t do to their pedophiles? When has judgement EVER been fair between the races, and why are black people expecting that to change any time soon? At the end of the day deflecting away from Robert and the sh-t he did is one of the reasons he’s been allowed to pray on black girls for so long……unchecked. Stop worrying about white people and handle our own sh-t!

    It’s a shame that there are still black women who don’t care about black girls and black women being abused. Black women like Taraji love black men more than they love themselves.

      The grown ones didnt care about themselves. The young ones parents didnt care about them.

    What a shame. Taraji is going hard for someone who would never do the same for her.

      Nope. He wouldn’t even look in her direction because she’s not 14 years old.

    Her and Erykah are extremely male identified. Ugh.

    Taraji is also a Chris Brown defender as well.

      I have to giggle at black women defending Chris Brown when he won’t even date one.

    So disappointing but not surprising.

    Harvey has hashtags. It’s #MeToo and #TimesUp. I mean he’s the primary face of Hollywood being exposed. So she sounds foolish.

    Taraji is on that bird sh-t. Harvey has been losing sh-t left and right. He didn’t get away with sh-t. And neither should R Kelly.

    Harvey Weinstein lost everything and the media dragged him for days on end. R Kelly got one documentary, and some black people are acting like he’s being targeted.

    I won’t be supporting her next movie. I’ll stay my a-s right at home.

    Taraji is 48 years old. Erykah Badu is 47. It’s something about that generation (I know not all are this way thank goodness) of women who believe in the “be his peace because the world is so hard on black men” BS. It’s very old school. They will literally risk their own happiness, health and careers to cape for abusive black men. And they never have anything to show for it. I’m sure none of the black men they have defended are going to speak up for them. But their need to have the approval of black men trumps everything. It’s sad to see.

      These young girls aren’t any better. They go hard for Chris Brown and it’s disgusting.

    I’m pretty sure Taraji does’t give a f-ck about Weinstein just like R Kelly’s other defenders. If she did, she’d know why this here was some ignorant sh-t to do.

  15. Huh

    January 22, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    She deleted it.

    I’m so tired of the ignorance. Some women need to do better.

    Well she is right t because no one is pushing for Harvey Winstion to be lockup as much as you guy’s are puching for R.Kelly to go to jail. Personal these parents needs to be heal accountable for what happened instead of taking the money you should have been fighting for your child.
