Erykah Badu Booed At Chicago Concert & Dragged On Social Media For Defending R. Kelly (Video)
Erykah Badu gets booed at a Chicago concert and dragged on social media for defending R. Kelly. Get the scoop and see video.
I think Erykah Badu better call Tyrone…but she can’t use my phone.
The soul singer has come under fire after she took a moment during her show at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago to share her thoughts on R. Kelly and let everyone know she’s praying for him.
Erykah went on to talk about gently chastise people for not showing predatory singer “unconditional love.”
Watch the super awkward moment below.
Of course, people took to the streets of social media to react to Erykah’s comments regarding R. Kelly and it was pretty brutal.
Peep the tweets below.
I’m finally understanding why so many hotep men who project toxic masculinity look to Erykah Badu cuz sis doesn’t speak for women, she speaks for them. She’s a false intellectual that’s hidden behind ditzy words and chakra crystals.
If you not for black girls, I’m not for you. pic.twitter.com/vcxBII6bfr

Erykah Badu is the reason why phrases like “looks can be deceiving” exist. Y’all thought she was the woke queen just because she wear head wraps and hipster teeth. Nah fam, she been a rape apologist bird for a min now.

Erykah Badu’s mindset is the same a lot of older black women have about “these fast ass girls” and why so much incest/assault goes ignored in the black community.

Social media is truly toxic. All of you attacking Erykah Badu for doing the same thing yall was doing BEFORE the Lifetime doc came out. Yall knew R. Kelly was a pedo but continued playing his music. It took a TV show to stop supporting a known pedophile? Yall just as bad as her.

Erykah Badu saying she still loves R Kelly doesn’t shock me. This is the same woman who saw “something good in Hitler”…. ☠️

Hope R. Kelly was worth Erykah Badu’s career. Don’t bring you ass back to Detroit with all those tired ass songs. We don’t want you no more ??♀️.

woke up in a world where Cardi B is dragging Tami Lying and Erykah Badu is defending RK. I’ve never been more proud and ashamed at the same damn time.

I don’t care how much I may love Erykah Badu. I cannot support her if she supports someone who abuses women. pic.twitter.com/UfuRQT497r

I really want to say how much i loved Erykah Badu’s concert tonight.
But i can’t get over how she tried to justify and defend R. Kelly’s actions and reputation during her set… I’m so disappointed…
