Cara Delevingne Addresses Losing Thousands of Followers for Speaking Out Against R. Kelly

Cara Delevingne is not bothered about losing followers after speaking out about R. Kelly, who is back in the headlines after the airing of Surviving R. Kelly, the Lifetime docu-series which addresses sexual abuse allegations against the singer.

“This is me realizing I lost more than 50,000 followers yesterday after posting about @rkelly,” the 26-year-old model and actress captioned a picture of her making a goofy face on her Instagram.

“Every time I say something real, something I truly believe, something others may think of as controversial, something that makes people think and ask questions, I lose followers. The followers I lose clearly don’t agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards. In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation IS NOT VIOLENCE btw, it’s communication. Something I still struggle with. I have always been taught to avoid confrontation at all costs, which caused me to be silent most of my life, silence causes suppression and suppression causes sickness. Not anymore! Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly.”

“I finished the Surviving R Kelly documentary last night and I am so shocked and outraged at how long this has gone on. My heart goes out to all the victims of his emotional and physical abuse and their families,” she wrote in her original post.

    Cara is blessed to be rid of these people. Anyone that is being shunned for speaking out against R. Kelly is awesome in my book. Silence is not ok when we are talking about the shattered lives of girls and women.

    euhhh! count yourself lucky, why would i want r.kelly supporters following me! good fucking riddance. the devil he is.

  • mahbelle

    why does she care?

  • Tania

    honestly, i think it’s more about the wtf factor than anything else. the man is scum and to think that 50K people (which admittedly is NOT a lot by Twitter standards) don’t think so is really sad and scary at the same time. I like her so I started following. LOL, she lost 50K and got @ least 1 back.

    Cut the dead weight and fake love in 2019! Good riddance!

  • Nastassia

    Let’s hope that the scum Weinstein and as many monsters as possible will also get exposed until they face jailtime.

  • starchy

    what kind of moron would support R Kelly?? (Rhetorical question. I have a pretty clear idea.)

  • Nat

    Those were probably followers that your agent paid for. They are probably in business with R. Kelly, too, so they pulled some of your followers.

    Bitch pluck you mf eyebrows! Then maybe we can bump and grind

  • wangson

    Cara Delevigne is not just one of the ugliest supermodels ever; she’s one of the ugliest women of all time. I find her physically repellent to behold.

  • rhonda

    No probably because she is gay!

  • Dumb

    HA HA ! That’s hilarious!

  • Dumb

    whaaaaa? She is beautiful. To me she is.

  • wangson

    Yeah??! I just can’t see it. Her brows are thicker than my dark thatch of pubis, (which I find repugnant-looking) and the , “Hard-Ass/Angry-Eyes” pose that she CONSTANTLY uses, suggest to me that she’s an aggressive, egotistical, self-concerned millennial who gets upset far too easily when they hear “non-inclusive” language. The dumbest of the dumb and most aggravating of all God’s creation, in other words!!

    Yah. You’re not the only one. I just can’t get past those raccoon-style eyebrows that she so often flaunts.
