Media platforms stand strong with #MuteRkelly campaign.

Last week, Spotify announced that they will no longer promote R.Kelly’s music. And now Apple Music and Pandora are the latest to join the movement. They have no removed R. Kelly’s music from their playlists following sexual allegations. According to reports, both brands along with Spotify will “remove the singer’s music from all of its editorial and algorithmic playlists last week as part of its “hate content” policy.”  

Mixmag reveals:

"Apple Music and Pandora were being urged by activist's from the Time's Up movement to do the same. Time's Up also recently backed a #MuteRKelly campaign and called on RCA Records and Greensboro Coliseum Complex to cut ties with the singer."

Pandora released a statement and says,

“Pandora’s policy is to not actively promote artists with certain demonstrable behavioural, ethical, or criminal issues. We approach each of these scenarios on a case-by- case basis to ensure we address components true to Pandora’s principles while not overreaching and avoiding censorship.”

R.Kelly has denied all allegations.
