37-year-old Trump stump Brendan Hunt was arrested and convicted of posting a series of messages to social media that included death threats directed at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. On Tuesday, Hunt's attorneys filed a leniency request that included an R Kelly comic.
The family of one of R. Kelly's more infamous girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage, are still reaching out in hopes that she'll escape the Stockholm syndrome he seems to have over her even from prison.
The disgraced R&B singer is expected to be sentenced on May 4, 2022, after a federal jury found him guilty on sex trafficking and racketeering charges on Sept. 27.
Chuck D shared a tweet asking "How long should R. Kelly spend in prison -and does a USA system give a man a chance for a man to change his world around?" Meanwhile, embattled comedian Bill Cosby claimed Kelly "got railroaded."
As the verdict finding R Kelly guilty on all charges was announced, a number of his supporters were gathered outside the courthouse playing his music in defiance of the long-overdue push to #MuteRKelly. One supporter declared, "We will not give up on R Kelly." Meanwhile, Kelly's defense team is considering an appeal.
A popular sentiment being expressed in the wake of R. Kelly's guilty verdict following his sex trafficking trial has been how Black women like Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx would not rest until the disgraced singer was brought to justice.
Disgraced singer R. Kelly has been found guilty on all counts of racketeering and sex trafficking charges that span over three decades. He's been in jail since his 2019 indictment and could spend the rest of his life behind bars once he's sentenced.
As R. Kelly's second sex abuse trial comes to an end, his defense decided to go out with a bang by comparing his fight to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt to the fight for Constitutional rights of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A man lent further credence to the allegations that R. Kelly is a child sex predator by testifying he met the singer in a McDonald's when he was a 17-year-old aspiring rapper and was eager to do "anything" to get into the music industry.
