NFT: Surviving R. Kelly

BigBlueDownTheShore : 1/7/2019 1:43 pm
Whatís everyoneís opinion on whatís being told in the documentary? My wife twisted my arm to watch it with her and Iím really disgusted by what I have watched so far. It seems he paid parents off so he wouldnít go to jail for having sex with tons of minors and was hanging out at high schools picking young girls up. Pretty sickening.


'Surviving R. Kelly' night three: Everything we learned from the docu-series' finale - ( New Window )

Some of the stuff that came out in this was absolutely disgusting and it got worse with every episode.
yea

there were a lot of nasty details known for years (like the grooming), but he never got his comeuppance. Glad this documentary is bringing it all out again along with more details.

His agent, manager, and publicist just quit over the weekend. I'm sure more will follow.
In college a couple of us were at a diner.

We put a quarter or whatever it was to play a song at one of those small jukeboxes that are on each table. The jukebox ate our money so naturally we kept pushing the buttons.

For the next hour or two the diner got to enjoy Gotham City by R. Kelly on repeat.


But on topic: He is a disgusting human and so are those parents.

I think that was last spring, when a bunch of new allegations came out.

All his current reps left over the weekend. The bad press from this show is big. I'm sure the fallout isn't over yet.

Its been a long time and all of it (or most) happened before camera phones and social media. So i'm not surprised at all, but a full blown documentary makes it more "real".

I won't watch. Just came to this thread to say he can go get hit by a car.
That's the one thing that bothers me

All of this information has been out there for years. He's consistently been in the news over the past 25 yers exhibiting the same sick behavior but all of a sudden everybody NOW decides he's a monster? Where the hell was the outrage when he married a 15 year old or was caught on video sleeping with and urinating on a 14 year old girl? These things happened 15-25 years ago. Nobody gives a shit when he's cranking out hits but now he's faded a little and everybody loves to jump on a social media mob. Better late than never for sure but people as a whole are weird and I have a hard time taking anybody seriously that in 2019 decides that they're #mutingRKelly when it should have been done decades ago.

that stuff with Aaliyah was well documented. All that stuff was real. But one documentary, now everyone is woke. The keys to iginition song was made fun of by Chappelle for god sakes.

better now i get but for crying out loud, everyone is now woke. i swear its a weird time we live in.
and for the record, the guy is a psycho

should have been in jail years ago
I heard sales for his music went up after it aired

Pretty sick.

But then again people fawn over anything Chris Brown releases.
Things have changed...

Itís the same thing as Harvey Weinstein. It wasnít a surprise to anyone that he was a dirty dog for years and years, but then one day I guess there was enough change in the collective consciousness that people said, enough. Hopefully R.Kelly is finally muted.
