Surviving R. Kelly led lots of people to speak up against the man and also against the whole predatory dynamics that can be found in the music industry, generally speaking. Tamar Braxton was not quiet on the subject.
As you know by now, Tamar herself is also a survivor of sexual abuse, and she tried to make her feelings known to the world.
The strange thing is that her choice of words was interpreted by a lot of people as a defense for R. Kelly and this triggered tons of slamming and shade for Tamar.
After Tamar watched the documentary series, she decided to hop on Twitter to slam the witness who decided to remain silent of the subject.
‘Yeah he did that BS, but the rest of Y’all punk a**es did the WORK 4him 4yo f**kin benefit!’ she wrote.
‘Everyone stood back & watched & did NOTHING! Then so quick to nail Rob 2the cross! Y’all R just as guilty.’
She also posted that R. Kelly was most likely acting from his own trauma. And this last part was the one that enraged social media users.
Ya know…sometimes when you are not fully healed ( u never will be) u shouldn’t watch certain things. I didn’t know it would bring up so many emotions for me! Now I’m ANGRY AF, with Everyone!I wish i didn’t watch the r.Kelly doc. I won’t be watching it anymore. It’s TEW much 🤦🏽♀️

Tamar made sure to explain herself later by saying the following:
‘This is why I deleted it. Because not ONE OUNCE of me agrees with what he has done. As a survivor, I have learned that you can’t acknowledge one abuse without the other. It’s all f**ked up!!’
Tamar also said that she has some healing to do herself. On the other hand, we know that she’s been living her best life these days after falling in love again.
Tamar made sure to post her new man on social media a lot lately, but without revealing his identity. Even Logan, her son, got to meet the man, so it’s probably something really serious.
