Taraji P. Henson has been criticized for evaluating the usage of the MuteRKelly hashtag to #MuteWeinstein and #MuteHarveyWeinstein.
In since-deleted Instagram posts, the actress identified the shortage of posts calling for the muting of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein ― who is ready to face trial in Might for a number of the sexual assault allegations towards him.
The MuteRKelly hashtag has flourished on social media after the R&B singer was accused of serial sexual predation and abuse by a number of ladies in a brand new Lifetime docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
Whereas it isn’t precisely clear what Henson was making an attempt to show, baffled Twitter customers ― together with the chief producer of the documentary ― mentioned she had fully missed the purpose.
“No concept why Taraji Henson wouldn’t know that there usually are not one, however two initiatives abt [sic] Harvey Weinstein. However that is an oft-invoked deflection,” dream hampton tweeted.
Henson later tried to make clear her stance on the matter, tweeting that she believed Kelly was responsible “and must be muted.”
