Facebook has taken down a page created on the platform to ‘expose’ the women who accused R. Kelly of sexual misconduct.
Multiple women accused Mr. Kelly in viral docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelly’. Soon after the Lifetime docuseries premiered, a Facebook page was created called ‘Surviving Lies’. The page is alleged to have been created by a fan of R. Kelly’s to expose his accusers.
The fan page immediately became popular on social media and the link to a YouTube video purportedly exposing one of Kelly’s accusers was shared on it. The page also posted mugshots and text messages between the singer and his accusers, including Asante McGee and Faith Rodgers.
But Facebook stated the page violated its community standards and have now taken it down.
The statement from Facebook read:
The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed. We do not tolerate bullying or sharing other’s private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we’re aware.
