WaffiTV:Music sensation, R. Kelly has been banned from Philadelphia over his alleged sexual, physical, and mental abuse of young women and girls..
It is learnt that the Philadelphia City Council voted unanimously to ban the singer from stepping foot in the city as part of Councilwoman Helen Gym’s “Mute R. Kelly” resolution, CBS Philly reports
“We reject a system that silences black women and accepts black pain,” Gym confirmed on Twitter. “We believe survivors. R. Kelly is not welcome in Philadelphia. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.”
She also told the Philadelphia Inquirer that,
“The resolution is about not accepting. It’s about being clear that we will not accept a future where rape is accepted, and rapists and sexual predators get away with their acts. I believe that R. Kelly and predators like him should be shamed and banished from the public sphere.”
R.Kelly however still maintains his innocence of the allegations levelled against him.
