Ever since Surviving R. Kelly aired, the world has been exposed to horrific allegations against the singer, which many in the Black community have known about for years. Nonetheless, the docuseries has made us re-examine how we value the lives of Black women and girls, especially when a rich and powerful man is allegedly the abuser.
Now, Love & Hip Hop star Amara La Negra is sounding off. The reality star told TMZ, "He should’ve been in jail along time ago. I don’t even know how he’s been out so long because just with that video that was a leak to many years ago – that was enough proof to… I think everybody has known."
She also called out people who are supporting him, "I personally do not think that he should be out partying or doing any of that nonsense, however, were there people in the club supporting him after knowing everything that is happened? Okay, so it’s very difficult when one person is not going to be the only want to stop or create a movement, it has to be as a whole, as a society, we all see that our children are being abused or things are being done to our children. We, as a whole, need to come together and say, 'You need to stop.'"
R. Kelly has denied all allegations.
