R. Kelly’s management responded to the organization Time’s Up’s call to boycott the R&B singer’s music because of the ways he has allegedly mistreated women. “R. Kelly supports the pro-women goals of the Time’s Up movement,” the statement read. “We understand criticizing a famous artist is a good way to draw attention to those goals – and in this case, it is unjust and off-target.”
It later went on to say, “We will vigorously resist this attempted public lynching of a black man who has made extraordinary contributions to our culture.”
