Chuck D Takes Heat For Suggesting R. Kelly Doesn’t Deserve Life in Prison: ‘This Is Toxic’

Chuck D’s tweet about R. Kelly’s verdict and the U.S. prison system has many people wondering what the legendary rapper was thinking.

The Public Enemy front man tweeted his take after the R&B singer was found guilty Monday on eight counts of s*x trafficking and one count of racketeering.

Chuck D traced R. Kelly’s childhood and young adult background, comparing his situation to that of Rick James, another Black man.

R Kelly’s trial lasted almost six weeks with a jury of 12 — seven men and five women. It concluded Friday in New York. Many of the witnesses who came forward to accuse R. Kelly were Black women, heightening the case’s importance within the larger #MeToo movement.

Reactions to Chuck D’s tweet from other entertainers and creatives in the Black community have not echoed his sentiments. Drew Dixon, subject of HBO’s “On the Record” documentary which focuses on how she became one of the first Black woman to come forward and detail her history of abuse by Russell Simmons, called out Chuck D on Twitter for “twisting logic into a pretzel.”

Dixon has retweeted several other replies in the growing Twitter conversation. She even pulled Lindsey Boylan — the first woman to speak out in the accusation of Andrew Cuomo’s s*xual harassment — into the thread.

Dixon has also emphasized other responses from Black people like April Reign that discuss how to talk about and correct both Chuck D’s and R Kelly’s behavior.

Yea life is a bit of a stretch. I could understand a good 15-20. That’s about the most I’ve ever seen s*x crimes get.

Once he started taking them across state lines he moved into another realm of fu*ked. This isn’t some accusation to come back from, dude did his dirt and he’s gotta go into the dirt behind bars. This ain’t a s*x tape sent to the Chicago Sun Times. It’s not an accusation of impropriety and falsified marriage licenses to a teenager. It’s decades of deviant behavior he got away with and started making dumbass moves that came back to finish him off. This ain’t the dude to be rallying behind or talking about redemption. Too many black men locked up for bullsh*t to waste our time on someone we lost a long time ago.

I love Chuck but he’s only saying that cause Kelly is Black and cause his daughter is not one of Kelly’s victims. Just like all those who were in support of Bill Cosby for raping mainly white women wouldnt be if he were a white comedian accused of raping mainly black women. However I do get white men aren’t held to this same kind of justice but you can’t wait till a black celebrity whom you admire to get convicted for being a pedophile to talk about prison not being a place for rehabilitation when this problem has existed forever.

He didn't sell his daughter to R Kelly so he ain't gotta worry about that

Plus alot of the evidence was hearsay.

Life in prison is a hard pill to swallow because you couldn’t control your d*ck...

...but I don’t have an abundance of sympathy for him because he got away with it the first time, like bruh if you back up in here again for some mo freaky sh*t you KNOW they finna fry yo a*s.

Still gon listen to the music, but it’s music and it’s good...

...but I don’t feel like this is some “miscarriage of justice” - and I’m not even mad at him for the sh*t he did with consenting adult because those people made their choice to get down with him, but bruh all the kiddie sh*t is a tragedy and you gave em another chance to cook you.

You at the mercy of the court now and you did it all to yourself...

R Kelly sold his soul to the devil now it’s his turn to cash in. He’ll be dead within a couple years. Dude ain’t built for prison


Dude should’ve kept making hits and bought himself some time

Illuminati n*ggas said you keep making hits or else you go to pay the piper

Only reason he went free last time is because he made ignition

n*ggas are still doing it in 2021 as well. Nothing has changed. And by n*ggas I mean black women as well. White people too. For the right amount of money morals disappear.

For the record…he was being tried for s*xual a*sault of a minor/pedo sh*t…that’s not racketeering…they railroaded him because it was convenient…there wasn’t a shred of physical evidence presented only testimonies from people tryna save their own neck. If it’s Racketeering, everyone who helped, including the girls parents should be indicted. RICO sh*t is for organized crime not statutory r*pe charges.

Dummy I’ve done time with plenty of child molesters and rapists and none have had long sentences let alone a life sentence. A majority of them white. You a fu*kin’ square speaking on sh*t you have no clue about.

Damn life. I mean that gymnastics dude got over 1,000 years in jail. So maybe they're going harder on these type of crimes. Especially if they let you rock for a while.

Ideally I'd think it's supposed to be about reformation but I think the clause in the 13th Amendment is more of a factor in regards to that...
