The response towards Lifetime’s recently-concluded docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, has shown no signs of mellowing in the past few days. Kelly’s fellow Chicago native Common says that collectively, the Black community has failed the R&B singer’s alleged victims.
TMZ exclusively reports:
We got the rapper/actor out Tuesday at LAX where he said he’s guilty of not coming to the rescue of Kelly’s alleged sex slaves. He also calls it a systemic failure when it comes to how society values black women and makes no bones about it — if the alleged victims were white instead of black, there would have been more outrage.
Common — who’s from Chicago, just like Kelly — is done giving him a pass. As you know, there’s been a ton of backlash since the “Surviving R. Kelly” 6-part series — Tank blasted Kelly and Daymond John explained why he thinks Kelly should kill himself.
Add Common to the list of people who think Kelly needs to face consequences, starting right now.
Com Sense joins the likes of John Legend and several others who have distanced themselves from R. Kelly.
