Talk about timing!
Just as R. Kelly was announcing his tour of shows in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, WBTV’s Dedrick Russell was asking 105.3 if his music was still being played on the air!
Here’s what Operations Manager, Jeff “Uzid” Anderson had to say: “I just don’t think it’s in the best interest to play R. Kelly – just based on the accusations that have come about – that haven’t been answered for and just for the controversy surrounding it,”
Midday Diva, Chirl Girl, agreed and added: “I am a survivor of sexual abuse as a child, so it makes me feel some kind of way, and when I hear the lyrics – all his songs were creepy – all of them. If you have been a victim of that type of thing – it pulls you back into those same scary circumstances, so I am like why are we traumatizing the public. We are here to make them feel good and dance and relax.”
