Chance the Rapper Says Working with R. Kelly Was a "Mistake"

Investigators were flooded with calls once the six-part docuseries aired last week.

Kelly has long denied all accusations, and many musicians declined the opportunity to speak out against him in the docu-series.

We also learn that R. Kelly met one of his alleged victims in court while facing trial for child pornography charges in 2008, for which he was found not guilty. He was acquitted, and his lawyers at the time said Kelly was not in the video, and suggested his likeness may have been computer-generated.

But in 2017, O'Reilly was forced from his perch as the top-rated host on cable TV after five women accused him of sexual harassment.

Kelly has continued to deny all allegations against him, and he is not now charged with any crimes.

All three hours were trending on social media every night that they aired causing discussion among fans and colleagues alike.

Namely, it examines the wider public's reluctance to believe or care when young black women are abused or hurt, and the cognitive dissonance we as listeners use when dancing to the likes of 'Ignition (Remix)'. "Like slavery for a lot of people, they envision men in chains, but black women are exponentially a higher oppressed and violated group of people just in comparison to the whole world". I really would like for you guys to help me understand what I'm missing.

I don't think - when the dust finally settles, if there's an end to this story someday, I don't think anybody in the history, not only of popular music, but popular entertainment, has abused his position of fame for so long to hurt so many people. I saw my body laying in blood, I saw ambulance come, the housekeeping coming out and saying, 'She jumped from there.' I remember hearing my babies voices, 'Why did Mommy jump? I'm a music journalist. "It's nearly like God was able to let me see in the future".

As it was reported yesterday, Chrissy's husband, John Legend, made an appearence in the documentary and spoke about Kelly's supposed transgressions.

"To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn't feel risky at all", he wrote on Twitter.

Express.co.uk has contacted R Kelly's representatives for comment about the claims.

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

His honesty may be important in continuing this important talk, but the words have understandably hurt millions of women of the black community, who face oppression daily in America. "Or is that the reason?" "It's a awful burden to have to endure".

"With regards to the post that is in circulation of Drea Kelly singing 'Happy People, ' this in no way should be perceived as an extension of support for R. Kelly, but should be viewed as a statement of her strength and not having been defeated", said the statement continues.
