Philadelphia City Council Member Bans R. Kelly3 weeks ago by Amber Le in Trending
Ever since the release of Surviving R. Kelly, justice has slowly been served. The city of Philadelphia announced that they are canceling the singer. Philly city council member, Helen Gym took to Twitter to share her thoughts.
“We all live in a powerful moment where we can say we will no longer accept a system that protects powerful men at the expense of women. For decades, R. Kelly’s survivors have been trying to get someone to pay attention. Today, we’re paying attention. 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.”
