Time’s Up’s Women Of Color Demand Investigation Into Allegations Of Abuse By R. Kelly

The Women of Color (WOC) group within the Time’s Up movement has published an open letter in support of a campaign that seeks justice for the alleged victims of R&B singer R Kelly. WOC write: “We call on people everywhere to join with us to insist on a world in which women of all kinds can pursue their dreams free from sexual assault, abuse and predatory behavior. To this end, today we join an existing online campaign called #MuteRKelly.” The #MuteRKelly campaign calls on Kelly’s record label, Sony, and concert promoter, Live Nation, to sever ties with the musician. Kelly, 51, has faced a number of allegations of abuse against young black women, including claims of imprisonment in an “abusive cult”. Kelly has “unequivocally” denied all claims.
