Facebook Reportedly Shuts Down R. Kelly Fan Page ‘Surviving Lies’ For Shaming And ‘Bullying’ Accusers

Facebook Reportedly Shuts Down R. Kelly Fan Page ‘Surviving Lies’ For Shaming And ‘Bullying’ Accusers

It’s only been a few days since the debut of Lifetime’s docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ that has swept the country and sparked a huge debate online about sexual misconduct, pedophilia and abuse at large. Though R. Kelly maintains that all allegations against him are untrue, the evidence presented in the docuseries definitely has sparked serious questions and overall outrage of the lack of accountability.

As a response to the allegations, R. Kelly’s team suggested they were in the process of creating a website called ‘Surviving Lies’. Accordingly, a website, “www.survivinglies.com,” was registered on January 7, but does not yet have any content available.

However, it seems as though some R. Kelly fans beat them to the punch and created a Facebook page called Surviving Lies and reportedly uploaded content to discredit the accusers who participated in the docuseries.

After the page was brought to light, many quickly criticized the members for shaming accusers after mugshots were posted of the men and women involved in the show and accusations were made against their character.

It’s unclear if Kelly was actually supporting the Facebook page, but there were private text messages included between the singer and his accusers, like Asante McGee and Faith Rodgers, which were shown to discredit the stories told by the women.

Facebook got wind of the page and snatched it right down, claiming the page violated their community standards. The full statement read: “The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed. 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.”

As reported by The Blast, R. Kelly’s manager has also been accused of harassing and intimidating the parents of one of the singer’s accusers for their participation in the show. ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ made claims that the disgraced singer’s team of people have worked to keep him safe and shield him from public persecution, and it appears that team is still trying to turn the tide.
