Live Crowd Lets Erykah Badu Have It After She Shows Support For R.Kelly!!
Erykah Badu is feeling the pressure.Badu was performing at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago where, according to attendees, she criticised the outcry against the R&B singer following the damning Lifetime documentary Surviving R Kelly, which details multiple allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct against him.
According to one concertgoer, Badu said: “What if one of the people who was assaulted by R Kelly becomes an offender? We gonna crucify them too?”
Another claimed on Twitter that she had told the crowd to “keep [their] opinion to [themselves]”.
Earlier this month, the documentary’s producer revealed that Badu was one of many artists who turned down the opportunity to appear. While many of Kelly’s former collaboraters have since denounced the singer over his alleged behvaiour, Badu has hinted that she still “loves” the singer despite the allegations featured in the documentary.
And while it’s reportedly not her entire speech.
