R. Kelly

 

Columbus, Ohio’s Fashion Meets Music Festival ended up making a decision to forcibly release R. Kelly due to radio station WCBE 90.5 FM along with, local bands Damn The Witch Siren and Saintseneca pulling out of the music festival because of R. Kelly’s Reputation as a pedophile.

“We feel R. Kelly’s selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault,” shared Saintseneca in a formal statement. “We feel it is an affront to all survivors, who are already often overlooked and forgotten in our society.”

To have a sponsor and bands rally against the “King Of R&B” is a major statement, and to add insult to injury, backlash from social media was growing as well to band his participation.

Festival organizers released this comment:

“We wanted to make sure we heard the Columbus listeners…to make a statement and support the city we live in.”
