Columbus, Ohio’s Fashion Meets Music Festival axed R. Kelly from performing after local bands Damn the Witch Siren, Saintseneca and radio station WCBE 90.5 FM pulled out of the music fest, citing R Kelly's reputation as a punk azz sexual predator.
“We feel R. Kelly’s selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault. “We feel it is an affront to all survivors, who are already often overlooked and forgotten in our society.
Event organizers released statement,
“We wanted to make sure we heard the Columbus listeners… to make a statement and support the city we live in.”
