A couple of years ago, I got into it HEAVY with some lady online about “The R”. She said something about the Eddie Long scandal, and I told her if we’re slandering people due to allegations, then I hope she felt the same way about the man who sounds like a harmonizing goat (the animal, not the accolade).
She got mad and said that we shouldn’t talk about the masked singing menace because he wasn’t expected to mentor and save souls like Eddie was, and that was absurd to me. Allow me to say right now, I in no way condone the things that Eddie Long was accused of, but the notion that one sin is greater than the other because someone is a spiritual leader and the other is not is preposterous.
Anyway, the debate continued, and of course, like any non-self respecting member of the #peehive, she started victim blaming. So I asked if she had a daughter and what she would do if said daughter told her that Kellmonger had nefarious intentions with her.
This woman fixed her fingers to type, “Well she shouldn’t have been out there being ‘fast’ or whatever.”
I was beside myself. I promise to the Most High that this was my next thought:
R. KELLY CAN’T EVEN SING WELL ENOUGH TO GET THAT KIND OF SUPPORT!!!
Ok that’s cool. This is addressed to people who want to turn a blind eye to his criminal behavior. I’m just going to talk about the Grand Perpetrator strictly based on what y’all love him for. My disdain for him stretches far beyond the allegations. He’s criminally overrated, and I’m tired of black people acting like this man is this great maestro. Let’s get a couple of things straight:
Y’all just need to let this barbarian go on his way. He hasn’t done anything deserving of the excuses and support he gets. The Boondocks were right about how we as a people handle celebrities that just ain’t s**t (Google it).
R. Kelly is trash.
