YouTube Removes R. Kelly Channels After Singer’s S*x Offence Conviction

YouTube Removes R. Kelly Channels After Singer’s S*x Offence Conviction (Updated: 7 months ago)


Globally recognized musician and R&B legend, R. Kelly has been struck by YouTube.

It has been revealed that YouTube has removed R. Kelly channels after singer’s s*x offence conviction.

YouTube has permanently suspended two channels of disgraced R&B singer, R. Kelly, who was found guilty of sex offences last week. The platform will not allow him to create any new channels in future.

However, YouTube has not banned Kelly’s music: The internet video giant will continue to offer the singer’s music catalogue on YouTube Music.

On Tuesday, YouTube removed the two channels — RKellyTV (which had 3.5 million subscribers) and RKellyVevo (which had about 1.6 million subscribers) — citing a violation of its terms of service, Variety report.

Attempts to watch videos on the now-removed channels display a message that says, “This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.”

“Egregious actions committed by R. Kelly warrant penalties beyond standard enforcement measures due to a potential to cause widespread harm,” YouTube VP of legal Nicole Alston wrote in a memo, as reported by Bloomberg. “Ultimately we are taking this action to protect our users similar to other platforms.”

Kelly’s official accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook also have recently been disabled.

YouTube’s move to delete Kelly’s channels comes eight days after a federal jury found him guilty of racketeering and eight charges of an anti-sex trafficking law. Kelly is set to be sentenced on May 4, 2022. The 54-year-old faces 10 years to life in prison.
