Petition To Have RCA Drop R. Kelly Released By Color Of Change

"It’s past time for R. Kelly to stop making money to perform songs that glorify his hunting and assaulting young women..."

Color Of Change has released a petition calling for RCA Records to drop controversial musician R. Kelly from their label. According to the petition, the years of alleged abuse done by the singer towards women and underage girls without repercussions has been too much to bear.

"Despite Kelly’s decades-long documented coercion and sexual manipulation of young Black women, including illegally marrying a 15-year-old when he was 27, countless civil suits and a trial for 14 counts of child pornography, he’s never faced legal or financial consequences," the petition reads.

There is no word as to how many signatures the petition has so far, however, many people are calling for Kelly to be brought to justice. The "Pied Piper" is reportedly under criminal investigation in Georgia and Illinois, which is said to be a direct result of the Lifetime documentary, Surviving R. Kelly.

"His well-documented pattern of grooming and abusing young girls didn’t stop him from selling over 60 million albums and he’s even currently on an extended national tour," the site continues. "RCA promotes and funds his explicit music and they actually allow him to brand himself as "The Pied Piper" after the fairytale character who used his musical talents to lure children away from their parents."

Video Surfaces Of Osundairo Brothers Buying Supplies For Jussie Smollett Attack

A new video of the Osundairo brothers, the two who alleged Jussie Smollett hired them to stage an attack in Chicago earlier this year, has surfaced online. The video shows Ola and Abel Osundairo purchasing supplies that were allegedly used in the attack.

The video, which was obtained by CBS, shows the two brothers stepping up to the cashier's counter to buy ski masks, gloves, bandanas, sunglasses, and red hats that resembled MAGA hats. At one point in the video, Abel pulls his hood over his head, perhaps in an attempt to avoid showing his face on surveillance cameras.

EXCLUSIVE:

I tracked down surveillance of the Osundairo's buying supplies before "attack"

Sources say Jussie Smollet told brothers what to buy.

Countless phone calls placed for this.

CBS2 reported that the brothers bought the suspected supplies the day before the "attack" on Jussie. While previous videos obtained by the Chicago PD suggests the attackers were wearing ski masks at the time, the new footage does not confirm that Smollett was part of the attack.

The Empire actor has reportedly agreed to sit down with the police for another interview. Check out the new video below.

Eminem Continues To Fire Shots At MGK During Australia Concert

It looks like Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly's beef is still going strong. During Eminem's latest concert in Australia, the rapper called MGK a "c*cksucker."

It all started when Em's fans began chanting for him to play his 2018 diss record, "Killshot." Instead of performing the track however, the Detroit native said: "I would but I don't want to give that cocksucker any more fucking light."

"Make some noise for your f**kin' selves and make nothing for MGK," he added before continuing with his set.

Em's latest comments come months after his feud with MGK exploded in 2018. The beef ignited after Em addressed Machine Gun on his Kamikaze album, which prompted the Houston artist to return with "Rap Devil." Fans thought the beef had died down, but was later resurged with Eminem's "Killshot."

Check out Eminem's latest diss in the video below.
