Philadelphia officials are in coompliance with R Kelly accusers. The city has moved forward with muting R. Kelly. According to reports, the city council passed this unanimous decision on Thursday. Philadelphia has decided to literally mute the singer by not welcoming him in the city. The decision comes after Lifetime’s six-part docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly” at the top of the year.
Councilmen member at large, Helen Gym spoke out. “This resolution is about fundamentally stating a public declaration that R. Kelly and sexual predators like him don’t belong in a public sphere, with public support,” she stated. “This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.”
R. Kelly is currently under FBI investigation for possibly booking a flight for one of his alleged underage victims.
Helen Gym posted to twitter stating her stance.
To every survivor speaking out across the country and especially in our city: This resolution honors your voice, your resilience, and your fight for justice. #MuteRKelly
