Following the "Surviving R. Kelly" finale, Jada Pinkett Smith, Chance the Rapper and other celebrities are asking, "Do black girls' lives matter?" Using McGee's past arrests and a phone conversation reportedly between her daughter and ex-boyfriend, the Facebook page attempts to prove that McGee is only trying to cash out from her experiences with the R&B singer.

Smith says in a video she tweeted on Sunday that she's having a "really hard time understanding why" Kelly's music sales and streaming have reportedly increased since the docuseries premiered.

We just reported what happened after Tamar Braxton chose to offer fans and followers her opinion on the matter, as a survivor of sexual abuse and more. In the documentary, women portray R. Kelly as manipulative, violent, and focused on young girls, allegedly demanding they call him "daddy".

He later went a step further tweeting: 'Anyone mentioning that I have black women in my family is deliberately missing the point. "We would have welcomed someone who knew him and actively wanted to defend him".

"Kelly premiered on Lifetime and during the three-day debut, 'everyone got a first-hand account of the allegations from the survivors" perspectives, ' The Shade Room notes. 'Time's up for R. Kelly'.

During the final episode of the Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly", the Chicago rapper admits that it was a "mistake" when he recorded a song with Kelly.

But after Saturday's last episode of the series, people who took to social media had one question: why did no one care about the girls?

"To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn't feel risky at all". "Why would they wanna tear down another brother / Women show black men some love / 'Cause black men, we go through enough", Kelly sings. "We're programmed to really be hypersensitive to black male oppression", he said.

Speaking to People, Smith said, "Robert came to me, we were in Miami".

The Internet has expressed a collective revulsion with the allegations, with many suggesting that it's the lack of protection for black women that allowed an apparent child rapist to thrive for decades.

Andrea says she then returned home and looked up signs of domestic violence online, where she discovered that Kelly met most the requirements of an abuser.
