R Kelly Youtube Channels Removed Following Sex Trafficking Conviction

24


YouTube has removed two of R. Kelly’s channels following his sex trafficking conviction last month.
The singer used his status to sexually abuse women and children over 20 years, a jury found.


YouTube’s taken down RKellyTV and RKellyVevo, saying the decision is “in accordance with our creator responsibility guidelines”.
The singer won’t be able to create any new channels, but his music will still be available on YouTube Music.


His tracks will stay on the audio-streaming service, and music videos of his that are posted by other YouTube users will stay up.


The platform has taken down channels after convictions before, such as in the case of USA gymnastics coach Larry Nassar, who was jailed for molesting hundreds of young gymnasts.


R. Kelly’s due to be sentenced in May next year and could spend the rest of his life in prison.
