Kelly has faced numerous allegations of sexual abuse on women and underaged girls for a long time. This was in response to several sexual misconduct allegations that Kelly is now facing.

The statement continues on to state that Time's Up has neglected to speak with any women who welcome R. Kelly's support, and that the allegations against him are nothing more than a "greedy, conscious and malicious conspiracy to demean him". His spokesperson said, 'Kelly supports the pro-women goals of the Time's Up movement.

Because of the #MuteRKelly campaign, the scheduled performance of the "Bump N' Grind" singer at the University of IL has been canceled.

His concert scheduled for Chicago is now canceled.

RCA, Spotify, Apple Music and Ticketmaster didn't immediately respond to email requests placed late Sunday night.

Women of Color of Time's Up aims to organize around issues that are especially important to women and girls of color.

"To Our Fellow Women of Color: We see you. We feel you. Because we are you". The pain we bear is a burden that too many women of colour have had to bear for centuries. As Women of Color within Time's Up, we recognize we have a responsibility to help right this wrong. We intend to shine a bright light on our WOC sisters in need. Oronike Odeleye a co-founder of the Times Up said in a statement.

Holy Shab-e-Barat observed in Bangladesh
On the occasion, Bangladesh Muslims distribute candies and homemade foods among the poor, their neighbors, friends and relatives. The gathering was addressed by Mirwaiz-i- Kashmir Mohammad Umar Farooq who threw light on the importance of Shab-i-Barat.

The organizers of the #MuteRKelly movement said they were gratified that Time's Up was amplifying their cause.

The campaign has been set up to encourage Kelly's record label, as well as gig promoters, streaming services and other sectors of the music industry to cut their ties with him over allegations of sexual abuse dating back more than a decade. "A lot of people may not have been familiar with the scenarios that took place with R. Kelly in the past but I think there is more awareness now".

R Kelly has always been accused of behavior that has ranged from questionable to criminal. He Wednesday a 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994. The marriage was later annulled and the two refused to confirm that it even happened. Since America was born, black men and women have been lynched for having sex or for being accused of it.

For years, the artist has denied and the women he has allegedly abused want action taken against the RnB artist.

A woman told Rolling Stone previous year that she was in a long-term relationship with the singer that was sexually and physically abusive.

Another report from The Washington Post also mentioned that an unnamed woman claimed that he gave her a sexually transmitted disease and supplied her with drugs and alcohol when she was just 19 years old.
