The link to the above EUR article can be found here. The original Page Six article is here.

Syleena Johnson is a singer and has even worked with R Kelly on a few songs, early in his career, so she financially benefits from airplay of those songs on radio, the Internet, and through DJs spins. She can convince herself that listening to his music is okay and can be done so guilt-free, because she obviously struggles with her internal monitor that questions why she didn’t know she worked with a predator. And she probably thinks that since, “it didn’t happen to me” and “he never was inappropriate with me”, that somehow it diminishes or dabbles away the offenses he has committed for decades.

You can acknowledge a person’s creative genius while also acknowledging the wrong they’ve done. To say we should ignore the latter because the contributions a person makes is helpful or makes us feel good, is plain ignorance.

This predator wrote and sang about his offenses and crimes. He won awards for songs about seducing, manipulating, abusing, enslaving, and victimizing girls and young women. He’s been raking in millions of dollars through royalties earned on album sales and air time on radio.

Why would you continue to support him just because his music made you rock your shoulders or tap your feet?

I can’t listen to Bump n Grind, 12 Play, Trapped in the Closet, and so many other songs without thinking about the girls and women he took advantage of.

When I saw this article posted on Instagram the words I wrote below in the MuteRKelly IG thread, summarizes what I think of the mindset of Syleena and other R Kelly fans and supporters:

This right here…uugh 🤦🏽‍♀️When we knowingly aid the victimization of those we obviously don’t value, respect, and believe should be protected—we then are no better than the victimizer.

Clearly, the slave mentality sees no color of the master, it just wants to maintain the status quo. Because I can guarantee you there would be Black rage 🤬 across the board if the accused was a white man abusing young girls and women.

We would be picketing with signs that “Black women matter” and “Black girls matter” and the media would flood our airwaves and timelines with images and videos of protests.

But, unfortunately, this savagery by R. Kelly is deemed acceptable because he is also Black, like his victims. If the girls and women were white, oh my white America would be singing a lynching battle cry.

But, be calm America, it’s just Black on Black victimization.

No worries. Don’t fret. Because Black on Black crime is supposed to be the norm?!? Status quo?!?

Oh this sickness permeates so wide and deep. How will we uproot it, pluck it out, and flush it into nothingness? 😫

Change starts with you. Change starts with standing up, speaking out, and doing what’s right. Just because something or someone looks good, doesn’t mean it/they are right.

These are my words and thoughts. I stand by them. I won’t financially or socially support a person, brand, or ideology that victimizes, preys upon, enslaves, abuses, brainwashes, manipulates, rapes, molests, and benefits from the tearing down of one person for the gain of another.

And yes, Syleena, this means I won’t spend a penny that benefits Weinstein or Cosby. Predators don’t get financial passes just because they’re entertaining or inspirational.

#MuteRKelly and all predators!

Saturday I received an email solicitation considered spam, and plain and simple…a scam to rip me off for every red cent I have. What is sad is that this person, group, or whatever, chose to play upon my emotions by connecting me mentally to the disaster that took place in Japan not too long ago. I laughed as I shared this email with one of my closest friends, because for years we have (and I’m sure most of you have) received numerous emails from scam artists claiming to have access to millions and billions of dollars from bank accounts in Nigeria, Australia, and elsewhere.

This was my first Japanese scam, and I’m sure it won’t be my last. But I wanted to share this with people so that we can share with others who may be less inclined to see this for what it is…nonsense! I want those who don’t connect their head quickly with their heart to realize that by making contact with this person or persons they will most definitely end up penniless in the process. Our elderly and naive have been warned about Nigerian and Australian scams, but who’s telling them to keep watch for the scams being drafted with preconceived images of noble, upright, dignified, and elite Japanese?

Who is telling them that they aren’t randomly being selected to receive any money, but instead have been randomly selected to be made a fool of and robbed of their hard-earned money, by some people who may not even be Japanese? Ever thought that maybe the Nigerian emails you’re receiving aren’t even drafted and sent by Nigerians? Heck they could be sent by Joe Blow from some city right here in the good ole’ US of A. It’s a possibility.

If someone wants to risk losing their money on a whim and a wish, then they might as well clean out their bank account and place their bets on the lottery, or try things out at a casino. At least with both of those scenarios there is some level of excitement brewing as your hopeful payout will come immediately or in a matter of 1-5 days, and you have face-to-face interaction with the person who is taking your hard-earned money. So hopefully you will share this post with other people, especially those you know who are naive and would be gullible enough to give out all of their personal information to a complete stranger.

As you read the letter below identify the dead giveaways and red flags. I removed part of this person’s email address so that no one would feel inclined to make contact, and possibly have their computer hacked or crashed in the process. The only way to protect ourselves from predators is to be informed, educated, cautious, and prepared.
