Kim K Clarifies Kanye’s Remarks After Critics Accuse Him Of Defending R. Kelly

In the wake of the allegations against R. Kelly and the harrowing documentary that exposes his demonic behaviour, Surviving R. Kelly, the vast majority of fans and celebs have condemned the music mogul, with artists like Lady Gaga removing her collabs with Kelly from streaming services.

Heck, even Kelly’s own daughter described him as a “monster”, but controversial rapper Kanye West reckons people have been too harsh.

During Kanye’s Sunday Service gospel performance of all his biggest hits, he shared his feelings about the ordeal and pondered the age old question of whether or not we can separate the art from the artist.

“We can all enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn’t going to go there today. If we’re gonna tear down artists, let’s go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Lourve. Let’s take down all the art,” he told the crowd.

He added, “They just gonna pull up full documentaries on him. Then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary,” which is referencing an upcoming documentary detailing the sexual abuse allegations two underaged boys made against the late singer.

Kanye’s comments were met with immediate online backlash with people accusing him of defending Kelly’s actions.

Now, his wife Kim Kardashian has spoken out in his defence, alleging that his comments were taken out of context and that the pair are both appalled by Kelly.

“I’m going to nip this in the bud right now,” she begins. “Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are cancelling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect. The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.”

She adds: “I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behaviour. My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.”
