Kendrick Lamar Under Fire For Campaigning Against #MuteRKelly Efforts

Kendrick Lamar Under Fire For Campaigning Against #MuteRKelly Efforts

It seems like Kendrick Lamar is the latest celebrity to be dragged into the Surviving R. Kelly storm; this as BuzzFeed‘s Saeed Jones reminds folks about Lamar’s actions last year during the #MuteRKelly movement.

Additionally, over this past weekend, Jones tweeted, “I keep thinking about Kendrick Lamar actively campaigning (and succeeding) in getting R. Kelly and XXXTentacles put back on Spotify last year in response to the movement. There is complicit silence (shout out to Questlove) and then there is active endorsement.”

Furthermore, for those unaware, Spotify attempted to comply with the movement in removing XXXTentacion and R. Kelly‘s music of its platform completely, showing their support of protesters against domestic violence and sexual abuse.

While it is unknown if Kendrick knew the reason behind the platform’s actions, he campaigned against it; and threatened to pull his own catalog from the streaming service.

So, they back down in removing the musicians’ music.
