With each passing day since the airing of the docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly, there has been one piece of news or the other regarding issues relating to the documentary. A few days after the docu-series was aired, a Facebook support group was set up to refute the allegations leveled against Kelly in the series.
The Facebook page named “Surviving Lies” was taken down by the social media company not too long after for violation of its code of conduct. An official statement by Facebook states that the page violated all of Facebook’s community rules as bullying and sharing private information of contacts was not allowed. Members of the page received serious backlash for their actions on the page. They had posted mugshots of Kelly’s accusers and private text messages between Kelly and some of his accusers just to discredit the stories told by the alleged victims.
A website, www.survivinglies.com, was also created even though we can’t say at the moment if R. Kelly played any direct role in any of these. What we know is that the embattled singer and producer has vowed to expose his accusers for lying.
