As the #MuteRKelly movement gains its ground in the midst of the bombshell Surviving R. Kelly docu-series exposé, the voices of Hollywood’s favorites are gaining volume as well.
But only a handful of the industry is speaking out thus far, and in light of one of 2019’s most highly-anticipated relics of R&B—B2K’s reunifying Millennium Tour—Omarion is stepping forth with his stance on the controversy via Twitter. The lead vocalist of the early ‘00s boy group hasn’t tuned in to the six-part Lifetime documentary like everyone else. But with enough evidence laid out on the table and B2K’s collaborative history with R. Kelly, he’s making an executive decision about a few workings from his own catalog that every Millennium Tour ticketholder should be aware of.
Thus, he felt most compelled to share his voice on the matter.
“While I know our fans would be greatly disappointed if we didn’t perform those songs on #TheMillenniumTour,” he wrote, “after the tour I am retiring those songs from my set list.” As a father of a young Black girl himself, he lauds “A.A.R.T. (Artists Acknowledging Responsibility And Truth.”)
*Cues slow clap.*
