For years now people have been talking about the R&B singer Robert Sylvester Kelly who is better known as R Kelly.

Despite legal threats from the ‘disgraced’ R&B singer, Lifetime has released a three-night – six-part special – docuseries that premiered Thursday night. And to no one’s surprise, #SurvivingRKelly, which is the title of the series, immediately began trending on Twitter.

The Lifetime documentary series, features over 50 interviews but is reported to only feature two fellow artists, John Legend and Stephanie “Sparkle” Edwards.  

Legend has been praised for appearing in the series because so many other artists reportedly denied the opportunity to speak up on the series but he dismissed the praise tweeting,  “To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn’t feel risky at all,” he tweeted. “I believe these women and don’t give a f**k about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision.”

Like most times Twitter was split in the middle with some people demanding proof for all the allegations against R Kelly and others expressing their disappointment, rage and, disgust.
