“I don’t know how everybody else feel about it…I’m putting up a prayer right now for R…I hope he sees the light of day,” she explained as the crowd began boo.

“What y’all say? F–k him? That’s not love. That’s not unconditional. What if one of the people that was assaulted by R. Kelly grows up to be an offender? We gonna crucify them? How we gon’ do this? Just something to think about…they about to R. Kelly me on the Internet,” she said.

“Everybody involved has been hurt.”

    Seriously? Harold, they’re Groupies! Who do I have to blow, to go to the show — to sleep with the star? Those humans. Are you happy now Negroes? You got the man fired over allegations made by Groupies. Those so-called victims are Groupies without a Band, they need a check and they got paid to lie! Isn’t it obvious? You know what allegations are? Does innocent until proven guilty ring a bell? Ask the Central Park Five, the Scottsboro Boys, Emmitt Till, and the Groveland Four about allegations. They were hung, tortured and imprisoned for allegations. Now, we’re being hung, tortured and imprisoned by black people for allegations. Happy now, knuckledraggers? I know this argument will go over your heads. Groupies that don’t know they’re Groupies, calling themselves victims. Negroes believing what they think and not what they know. I hate ya’ll.

    This is what I’m gonna say when males come forwar about sexual assault. R Kelly alleged that he was also molested as a child. HE WAS GROUPIE! I hate all of you rapist pedophile apologists. You deserve exactly what you defend in life.

    Obviously Erykah needs a bigger hat.
    And a less asinine way to spell her name.
