Stephy Says 💋 if you haven’t heard, Taraji P. Henson has sparked a flame & has some fans outraged.
David Barden wrote this article just this morning at 4:01 AM & Huffpost released this story 😱
Apparently, Taraji P. attempted to equate & compare the Surviving R. Kelly (#muteRKelly) to the old sick skeezer Harvey Weinstein. She basically reportedly called out society for the hushed responds to Harvey Weinstein’s sex assaults while R. Kelly’s flourished all over the internet.
In the alleged deleted Instagram video, Taraji searched the #muteRKelly hashtag & yielded multiple results, while #muteHarveyWeinstein only yielded 1 result used on 29 posts.
Her attempt to compare the two left Twitter users in a frenzy stating that they aren’t sure what her point is, or what exactly she’s trying to prove.
After the stir on social media, Taraji comes back to clarify in attempt to make things right.
This post will be updated as the story updates.
If you haven’t been following the story, Erykah Badu stated that she was “praying for R. Kelly,” & some felt as if she was “letting him off the hook” or downsizing his crimes to”poor choices” & condoning his behavior.

Even with the backlash, Erykah Badu supports his healing. (Stephy Says 💋 not excusing his behavior but, be open minded & remember that even if he turned out to be a sexual predator, he was once a victim).
With her choice of words being taken out of context, this set off the Twitter fans & they are backing her.
She was accused of stating that R. Kelly has done more for the black community than any one has & here’s her clarification for that :
Erykah Badu entered a Twitter war with the executive director of Surviving R. Kelly docu-series. According to Jezebel, Erykah Badu denies ever being asked to be in the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series.
