Ever since popular musicians, R. Kelly, made the news for allegedly sexually molesting several underage girls for several years, a number of people on social media have had mixed reactions to the reports.
R. Kelly is undoubtedly a very talented musician and he is even dubbed the king of R n B by some die-hard fans.
Despite that, the negative publicity he has received in recent times has left people torn on how to react to his music, whether to love or hate it.
A young activist, Kenyette Tisha Barnes, has claimed on Twitter that she was recently forced to listen to R. Kelly’s music at a restaurant and she refused to pay for their services as a result.
According to Barnes, she asked not to be forced to listen to an alleged sexual predator and she then refused to pay for their services. The management then called the police and threatened to have her arrested.
Despite Barnes’ position on the issue, social media users have mixed reactions to it. Some people feel she was not forced to listen to music because she could have stepped out. Others slammed her for naming R. Kelly a sexual predator when he has not yet been found guilty.

You were not forced to listen to R Kelly unless you work at Applebee's. You are a customer. Your most powerful form of resistance is do not patronize that establishment. Just walk out.
Sounds like you chose to stay and make a scene.
