Master P recently shared his opinion about the allegations against R. Kelly and the singer’s alleged victims. But unlike Chance the Rapper and John Legend who have come out against the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer, the rapper blames the parents, NOT the singer himself.
On social media, the rapper posted his thoughts about the highly-watched Lifetime docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” which provided an in-depth look at the 25-plus-years of sexual misconduct accusations against the “Pied Piper.”
The 48-year-old father admitted that he doesn’t like folks like the Savages and doesn’t believe they did enough to protect their children.
“Let me tell y’all about R. Kelly. The truth is I don’t like the parents…Y’all know I ain’t gonna be on no reality show or Lifetime, I’ma be on CNN, straight up. It’s gonna get real, think about it, I’m not about to play with nobody, I’ma burn it down, I’m gonna do something,” he said.
In a second video, he added this wouldn’t have happened to him.
“Ain’t nobody gonna play with my kids. Straight up. You shouldn’t have even been on TV, and if you a parent, you shouldn’t be on that unless you on CNN from a jail cell.”
Adding, “I don’t know if R. Kelly did it or not, that ain’t any of my business, I ain’t judging, but I’m just saying those parents shouldn’t have let that go that far. … If my kid in there, it’s gonna be all out war. Everybody coming outside, to be honest with you.”
Wait…so which one is it? How can you be mad at parents for not protecting their daughters from sexual and physical violence you claim may not have happened?
Folks on Twitter were confused and disgusted by what Master P said, accusing him of victim blaming and refusing to hold Kelly accountable for his alleged behavior:
Of course, there were also people who agreed with the rapper’s stance:
This set of Master P videos came out the same day that Facebook shut down pages on its site trying to “expose” the singer’s accusers. As we previously reported, reps from the social network claimed that “Surviving The Lies” violated terms of service.
“The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed,” a Facebook rep said in a statement.
“We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other’s private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we’re aware.”
Initially, TMZ reported that “[R. Kelly] and his camp” were behind the two accounts and created them in order to fight back against the doc.

It should go without saying that Black girls should matter more than good music & a musical gift; that a minor should not be maligned as a manipulator of a man. Let’s teach boys that girls’ bodies are not theirs to molest & misuse. Not theirs to do anything with. #SurvivingRKelly— Be A King (@BerniceKing) January 4, 2019

It sounds like we’ve been singing along to a song about child molestation the whole time.

In the Black community, we blame women/girls. Holding men accountable takes a backseat to us being “fast” or “fresh.” We shouldn’t be there or we wanted it, but nobody gives us the tools to deal when it happens. “I didn’t know how to say no” is a real feeling. #survivingrkelly— Shamika Sanders (@Shamika_Sanders) January 4, 2019

Um, lemme tell ya what they not gon' do, act like #RKelly is holding young girls captive because he had a tough childhood. LOTS of folks had tough childhoods and did not go on to do what he is alleged to have done. #CutItOut! #SurvivingRKelly— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) January 4, 2019

What bothered me the most about this part of the documentary, is the fact that ALL these men they interviewing said something like "I knew something wasn't right about that" or "I felt uncomfortable when..." 🗣 BUT NONE OF Y'ALL SAID ANYTHING #SurvivingRKelly— Kleo Patrah (@badasskleo) January 4, 2019

“I wanted so much to grab Aaliyah and talk to her.” But you didn’t. Instead you forged marriage papers and co-signed this sick shit. You failed the hell out of that girl.#SurvivingRKelly— iYush (@iYush_420) January 4, 2019

"I forged some paperwork for Aaliyah to marry Robert"— iYush (@iYush_420) January 4, 2019
"If Robert pointed out a girl he wanted, I'd go get her for him"
"I remember walking in on Robert rubbing on this girl who looked young. She was clearly a baby in my eyes but I didn't ask for ID."

We NEED to discuss the sexual abuse Black boys go through and the trauma they endure BUT not at the expense of Black girls. That’s a deflection tactic. R. Kelly’s predatory ways cannot be justified because of a traumatic upbringing. #SurvivingRKelly— Stimmy Neutron 🌠 (@themorganjael) January 4, 2019

I have a 15 year old daughter. Not saying that you need to in order to understand, but it provides real life understanding FOR ME.— April (@ReignOfApril) January 4, 2019
There is NO way that it is appropriate for teenage girls to be meeting/texting/talking to men nearly twice their age. None. #SurvivingRKelly

Also, the #SurvivingRKelly doc made me think of why I’ve thought the “girls mature faster” idea can be toxic, especially for Black girls. There’s studies that show people see Black girls as older, more mature, in less need of help, less innocent than their non-black counterparts.— JOSHUA (@JournoJoshua) January 4, 2019

Also: Countless studies have shown that people — black people included — highly sexualize black girls and look at them as ✌🏾older✌🏾No different than how black boys are always looked at as advanced in age. It’s used to dehumanize us.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) January 4, 2019

We...don’t call the cops on men who threaten or harm us because we feel duty-bound to keep men out the system. Please tell me this isn’t real and that these brokeyardigans haven’t stooped this low. https://t.co/scO0s4DutY— Jamilah Lemieux (@JamilahLemieux) November 24, 2018

We need to let “I didn’t know how to say no” be enough. Stop asking why she wasn’t stronger. Why she didn’t defend herself. Why she didn’t fight. She. Didn’t. Know. How. #SurvivingRKelly— Keyaira Kelly (@keyairakelly) January 4, 2019

If you take away anything from the first ep of #SurvivingRKelly is that we don't value Black girls and women, because while y'all quick to call us "Black Queens," y'all are THIS quick to call us liars, fast-tailed girls, gold-diggers, whores and incapable of being victims. pic.twitter.com/5zQB0zvqlo— The “Success” Issue Out Now!

We should all thank my friend @dreamhampton for her very necessary work to create #SurvivingRKelly. These survivors deserved to be lifted up and heard. I hope it gets them closer to some kind of justice.— John Legend (@johnlegend) January 4, 2019

While we all sit here aghast, bros too, let’s make a collective commitment to not EVER let this happen again. That is the only way the shame that my gen feels for not having done/said more can be reconciled. #SurvigingRKelly— Kierna Mayo (@kiernamayo) January 4, 2019
