Philadelphia City Council Announces R. Kelly Won’t Be Allowed In City

The decision comes after Lifetime’s six-part docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly” at the top of the year. Councilmen member at large, Helen Gym stated,
This resolution is about fundamentally stating a public declaration that R. Kelly and sexual predators like him don’t belong in a public sphere, with public support. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.
Gym also tweeted,
“Mute R. Kelly” was originally from formed and launched in Atlanta.
