Some fans criticize him for not denouncing the actions of Harvey Weinstein while he does not hesitate to talk about the singer of R & B …
John Legend is one of the few celebrities who have agreed to testify in Surviving R. Kelly , a documentary denouncing the sexual abuse of which the interpreter of I Believe I Can Fly is accused . Unfortunately for John Legend , many fans did not hesitate to remind him that he had not done so much for Harvey Weinstein even though he was close to him. The singer explained on Twitter.
I took a photo with and worked with Harvey on several occasions before his abuse was known to me and the rest of the world. Since his being exposed, his company and career have rightfully been destroyed and he's been indicted. Sounds like something that should happen to R Kelly https://t.co/LgIOQpEnsP— John Legend (@johnlegend) January 8, 2019
“I took a picture and worked with Harvey on many occasions. But before his abuses are known to the rest of the world, “wrote John Legend .
The end of silence
And to add: “Weinstein has been denounced, his career is destroyed. If you want the same thing for R. Kelly, then fine! Me too “.
You a damn hypocrite. Weinstein’s exploits were well known for years. Either it’s a lack of intergrity or intelligence. Which one ‘John’?— Dre Micheals (@DreMicheals1) January 8, 2019
Recall that R. Kelly has been the subject of numerous allegations of sexual abusein recent years, but has never been convicted and has always denied the facts. With the broadcast of the documentary, the testimony of new victims could nevertheless allow justice to confuse the star of the RnB. The Illinois prosecutor, where some facts would have happened, has invited all the victims to contact her .
