R Kelly Trial

YouTube removes R. Kelly’s channels after sex trafficking conviction

YouTube has removed R Kelly’s channels from its platform — a few weeks after his sex trafficking conviction.

R. Kelly was found guilty of being the ringleader of a decades-long racketeering and sex trafficking scheme that exploited black women and children in September after five weeks of testimonies and hours of deliberation from the jury.

According to Reuters, the world’s largest video platform said it has taken down RKellyTV and RKellyVevo, two of the embattled singer’s channels.

YouTube also said the singer — whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly — will no longer be able to create or own any other YouTube channel.

It, however, added that the catalogue of his music will be available on YouTube Music, its audio-streaming service.

“We can confirm that we have terminated two channels linked to R. Kelly in accordance with our creator responsibility guidelines,” the platform’s spokesperson was quoted as saying.

Videos uploaded by other YouTube users, it is understood, will continue to be available.
