Harvey Weinstein, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend

Pop singer John Legend clapped back at social media users who criticized him for appearing in Lifetime's much-hyped docu-series Surviving R. Kelly, which documents sexual misconduct allegations against the 51-year-old singer.

Social media users dug up old photos of Legend, right, and his wife, former swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen, posing with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, left.

Weinstein is accused of sexually harassing dozens of women who were seeking roles in his movies.

Fans challenged Legend to explain why he remained silent on the Weinstein allegations, while publicly criticizing Kelly -- who has never been charged with any wrongdoing.

Legend responded to the criticism, tweeting: 

"I took a photo with and worked with Harvey on several occasions before his abuse was known to me and the rest of the world. Since his being exposed, his company and career have rightfully been destroyed and he's been indicted. Sounds like something that should happen to R Kelly. If y'all wanna cape for R and discount all these women's stories, just say it. Don't bring up some old pics of me and somebody else."

R Kelly and girlfriend

Legend, 40, was the only high-profile celebrity willing to insert himself into the drama surrounding R. Kelly (pictured above with a young friend in Atlanta).

Legend appears briefly in the six-part documentary, saying, "Time's up for R. Kelly. [He] has brought so much pain to so many people."

The pop singer wasn't concerned about risking his career by alienating R. Kelly fans.

He tweeted, "It didn't feel risky at all. I believe these women and don't give a f--k about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision."

The fallout continues for Kelly who promises to file lawsuits against those who produced and appeared in the documentary.

Hip-hop chieftain Master P low-key blamed parents and the victims -- all consenting adults -- for putting themselves in the position to be violated by a known predator.

"Ain't nobody gonna play with my kids. Straight up," he said in a video on Instagram. "You shouldn't have even been on TV. I don't know if R. Kelly did it or not, that ain't any of my business, I ain't judging, but I'm just saying those parents shouldn't have let that go that far. If my kid in there, it’s gonna be all-out war."

The docu-series broke records for Lifetime Network, becoming the most-viewed unscripted program in the network's history.

The first two-hour episode, which aired on Thursday, garnered 1.9 million total viewers. Friday's two-hour episode won the 1st and 2nd spots on the chart with 2 million and 2.1 million viewers respectively.

The final two-hour episode, which aired on Saturday, beat Thursday and Friday’s ratings. 2.26 million viewers tuned in for the 1st hour on Saturday. The second hour drew 2.29 million viewers.

In related news, on Monday, Facebook snatched down a fanpage, Surviving the Lies, which threatened to expose R. Kelly's  accusers.

    John legend the boy know to not run his mouth about a jew man terrorizing women but a dark skin black man is fair game. and Hollywood been knew Weinstein was no good..Barry Obama’s sent his daughter into the room with him and Oprah hooked him up all the time with prey

    John Legend is boring. He has been boring so I'm not sure why anyone would care. He should focus on his family rather than supporting the media's persecution of a peer. His goals should include making music that won't put us to sleep and balancing the aggressiveness of his wife.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    This R Kelly shat is so...heavy. Were these photos taken before or after he was exposed for being a creep? Because that's the only way I could kind of see it being compared to how countless people gave R Kelly passes knowing he was having sex with teenagers....

  • tia

    This is very hypocritical of Mr. Legend. While we're at it, no one is talking about Weinstein's charges being quietly dropped here and there. Glad this picture was dug up. Kuddos to the person that did so.
    It's good to have a voice, but then again sometimes it's just better to stay in your lane and keep your mouth shut.

  • pure_rachet

    John Legend looks like Doug Funny. Why is his wife all hugged up with HW? I don't even touch my friends while taking pics and she's closer to him than her hubby.

    John should have sat there and ate his food. Now look.

    He tweeted, "It didn't feel risky at all. I believe these women and don't give a f--k about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision."

    LOVE Mr. Legend’s courage!

    Personally, I think we need to stop giving coverage to what celebrities are or aren’t against R. Kelly. Let the legal courts decide Kellz’s fate. None of us have a heaven or hell to put anyone in, and we need to stop acting like judge, juror, and executioner in some court of public opinion.

  • Yardgirl

    Word!!

  • TriniHarlem

    Had his ass been just as boring as his music and be quiet he wouldn't be in this position.

  • Coy little wink

    His voice! It gave me shivers ?

  • tintin

    He brought nothing to the documentary.
    he talked about 3 mins in the whole 6 hours.

    I think he just looking attention.

  • Karen Brady

    :-)

  • stav

    The bottom line is Hollywood is a very small place, even if the man (HW) had not been indicted at the time, John heard about the man and his deplorable reputation and behavior.

  • Yardgirl

    OOOOO I see you Miss Coy!! Issa no for me though, he's just too milquetoast for me, but seems really nice and has good intentions.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I love him too

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The man took a bold stand to speak out against a predator who's been victimizing black girls and women for decades, and people are looking for a way to bring him down. It's funny how so many black folks are angrier at John Legend than they are at R. Kelly. Sad.

  • Bashi22

    I am wondering why all these celebrities love to protesting against corruption. However their same industry is marred with the same corruption drugs, sex, violence, perverts, pedophilia, love to force their believes or agenda on the masses ( if they don't accept their agenda the coin a word to label these people). John your wife quoted " I am force to like because she a child actor Quvenzhané Wallis. I wonder if we are force to like both of you children too because they mix Hollywood standard.

  • OJ…LOCOS-MOB#ReptileGang2019

    she got fucked by hw and he has hes hands on her ass john legend i s known cuck in hollywood hw even put it in raw and chrissy had an abortion john was ok with this hes like obama in that sense ultraliberal

  • FukkFolks2019

    Im not angry at John Legend. But know when WE (people of melanin) raise our hands to volunteer ANYTHING, help ANY cause, etc...That THEY (mayo people of LESS melanin) WILL be digging up every damn piece of dirt you have ever HAD in your LIFE. Even if its for issues that JUST relate to US (again people of melanin). So be ready. John's team wasnt ready. Had to issue an additional statement etc. They may as well issue one for every predator he has worked with. Make sure there are no murderer's. People who ran a red light in the past 5 years. Make sure that nobody bullied anyone and so on and so forth.

  • TriniHarlem

    Yassss I ain't listen to Tina in awhile.
    John is annoying

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Ain’t that it . It’s Crazy. I don’t understand our black at times.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That wasn't my point.
    People like Legend speaking out against R Kelly after public opinion has turned against him isn't going to change what happened to those girls so I don't understand why he's considered a hero.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    He looks real sweet and soft. Real bitch like ?????.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Was your river overflowing?

  • FukkFolks2019

    I like John. But see above sentiment under Brick's comment. Like be ready or stay your ass at home if you trying to save folks sans preparation.

  • SpillyNillie

    I'm so sick of people defending every thing that they've done. Apologizing for everything that they've said. Will this continue to be a way of life because I CAN NOT!

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Right

  • Shamwow

    ??

  • the guest

    I appreciate John Legend’s courage in standing up for victimized black women. And I am not a fan of his music, his voice and style just not my cup of tea.

    I don’t agree with boycotting R Kelly. I believe community leaders should be pushing him into a treatment program. The goal is for him to stop targeting and harming black girls and women.

    I don’t believe that white women or white people in general care about black girls and women and that the me too movement is only concerned with furthering their own agenda of the rights of white women. The R Kelly married Aliyah and then his trial were decades ago and the disingenuous feminist movement did not give one single fk about those black girls.

    R Kelly is a symbol of what happens to black boys who are victims of inadequate inner city public school education and sexual abuse and molestation. They grow up to be damaged illiterate predators lashing out at their own community.

    A few years ago a man named Africa Bammbattah who is said to be the founder of rap music was exposed for using his position and influence to molest and rape boys.

    There also needs to be a me too movement for abused inner city black boys to stop these cycles of abuse. Healing is neeeded all around.

  • R Smith

    Ok! And, you're right it's not going to change what happened. I don't consider him a hero for speaking out. I think HERO is the wrong word!

  • the guest

    Well said.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I’m sure this picture was way before everything happen.

  • TriniHarlem

    Nope since old blog I said he makes me want to slit my wrist and at best go to sleep.

  • R Smith

    So true!

  • FukkFolks2019

    For black people. Yes. Yes it will be. Sorry. Those are the breaks. Explain or stand to lose something. Even something small. Even if its a small portion of your audience. A gig. Something. If you can afford to stand up etc without losing anything that you value, then go for it. If not then get ready to get those lips ready. I dont like it. But its how it goes. It needs to change. But it hasnt.

    Johnny come lately, why don't you and your pie faced wife keep that same energy for your close friends that you did with RKelly. Why must they have special circumstances for the predators they hang around? Pie face has seen a lot in the modeling industry and so has Johnny come lately.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    If this picture was taken BEFORE Weinstein was exposed then this picture is not valid enough to say that John Legend is hypocritical. Dates and Times matters when revealing facts/truths.

    Bloop, no but they will have all the black celebrities eat their own while the whit man continues to rape and pillage Hollywood. Rkelly is a street thug compared to Weinstien and co and what hey do on a daily. DO you know what slavery s then go to Hollywood and you will look at Rkelly and shake your head. They have them on drugs and stung out by the time they are finished with them they are junkies.

  • T Willis

    That’s all you have - an uninformed, biased, emotional, opinion based on rhetoric. Your opinion can’t do sh*t but caused a lot of noise and the spread of misinformation. We have a legal system that takes care of individuals like R. Kelly. Let that process play out in it’s appropriate setting, so that the victims can have their opportunity to tell their story with the expectation of prosecution. This documentary and rhetoric isn’t doing anything for the victims and its just causing drama without any legal prosecution.

  • FukkFolks2019

    Look at you looking at the 55 inch 4k TV vs the 13 inch fatback TV

    Same in some households when they know a family member has molested one of us.

    R Kelly has been given the benefit of doubt for over twenty years. Even though there's clear proof, not speculation, that he's a pedophile. He illegally married a child, is on tape raping and urinating on one, and child pornography was found in his home. These are all facts not hear say. But we shouldn't pass judgement on this sick man SMH

    He shouldn't say anything since he was so amused about Tyga getting with Kylie to make sure nobody else got her first.

  • Ang

    I’m not saying John shouldn’t have said anything about R. Kelly. I haven’t watched the documentary so I don’t know what John said in it but whatever it was Kelly deserves the criticism he’s getting.

    That said, John often puts himself in whatever controversy is popular at the moment. Of course, that’s not always a bad thing because good comes out of it. But, in all honesty I think John likes attention as much as his thristy wife he just goes about it in more constructive ways. But, the fact that he does good sometimes like now doesn’t exempt him from being a hypocrite like most of Hollywood. I think most of them are only noble when it’s profitable or the hot topic of the moment. John was one of the celebrities protesting the Sultan of Brunei’s treatment of women and the LGBT community and swearing they would not attend anything at The Hotel Bel-Air because the Sultan owns it. John refused to attend an industry party because of the boycot. But a few months later he secretly performed there because he was paid $300,000. He refused to comment on it.

    Or vilify the survivor. ' She crazy. She mental.'

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    For the record, I don't like either one of them. I don't see the significance of either of them. Johns music is just ok, truthfully I only like one song of his "Best You Ever Had" and that's only bc of the scene with Taraji in Think like a man...

  • speakinmymind

    Say it louder for the folks in the back and the dimwitted ones.

    Legal Fact #1 - The girl AND her father testified under oath in court that it wasn't her. That is direct testimony from the alleged victim and her father. They made a choice to take money over justice and are STILL benefitting financially to this day.

    Legal Fact #2 - Aliyah's parents declined to bring forth any charges and accepted a financial settlement. Aliyah and her parents vehemently denied that a sexual relationship had taken place.

    This is the information the legal system has to go by. As long as the girls were over the age of legal consent when any sexual activity took place and/or they are not willing to testify under oath that underage sexual activity did occur and/or they accept a settlement, sign an NDA which terminates their right to sue then there is no violation of the law under the current legal system.

    The FBI declined to file any charges and he was found not guilty...not a hung jury and/or mistrial...not guilty in a court of law due to the testimony of the 14 year old and her father. Those are the FACTS, like it or not. I think he's a disgusting human being but legal facts are different from gossip, innuendo, rumor, etc.

  • BingBangBoom

    John Nobody said to throw your a** in the fire of all of this. You and your wife just crave attention. That's what hanging out with the Kardashians will do to you.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    You better say it, I didn't even like him in the movie "soul man" with with Bernie Mac and Sam Jackson.

  • Bashi22

    He wasn’t outspoken while Tyga was around Kyle oh I forget his boss Kanye West so he’s silent.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Wait, she had an abortion by whom?

  • speakinmymind

    Well said. He was made to be submissive as a victim of childhood molestation. As an adult, he ensures he is always the dominant one in the relationship by selecting submissive (adolescent girls, weak minded adult women) partners. That's the pathology at the root of his behavior but the masses thrive on sensationalism, gossip and innuendo.

  • OJ…LOCOS-MOB#ReptileGang2019

  • Wyteprivilege

    My 2 cents: I’m cool with his John. His music is boring AF and his wife annoys me for some reason. But the truth is that there isn’t a looooong line of Black male celebs that are standing up for Black women right now. So I’m not gonna hate on the very few who are. Besides his foooish collaboration w/ Rick Ross (a man who degrades women for sport), John can have a seat at the table (sans Crissy).

    Master P’s comment was a little strange only becasue he said he didn’t know what R. Kelly did, it wasn’t his concern and he’s not going to pass judgement, but then insisted that he would never allow a daughter around him. This “on the fence” mentality is part of the problem. I don’t think he should have even bothered to say anything at all.

  • Applebum

    "Ain't nobody gonna play with my kids. Straight up," he said in a video on Instagram. "You shouldn't have even been on TV. I don't know if R. Kelly did it or not, that ain't any of my business, I ain't judging...”
    ——————————-
    That’s the problem, everyone wants to pretend that they’re minding their own business. But watching and following it all on the low. Why would you want to mind your business when it comes to filth like this? Unless you have your own dirty secrets. “Ain’t nobody gonna play with your kids” SUREEEE! I’m willing to bet that they’ve been played with for favors in filthy Hollyweird.

  • Reina1718

    He aint speak live on Weinstein tho

  • Reina1718

    Alot of these young black men degrade women in songs all day. Making it seem like women are good for nothing & just a lay....they should be held accountable or atleast change the lyrics. Young boys listen to this new age mumble rap & all u hear is b&@tch this & that...those “bottle” girls or “bartenders” should have more respect for themselves aswell. This generation is loose!

  • Reina1718

    John legend betrer not make songs with any of these rappers that degrades women

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I can't wait til Lifetime make the movie vilifying Jerry Lee Lewis for marrying his 13 year old cousin, Elvis Presley for dating 14 year old Priscilla and Woody Allen grooming his 8 year old adopted girl to become his wife... I HOPE YOU BLACK PEOPLE HAVE THIS SAME ENERGY AS YOU HAVE FOR R. KELLY RIGHT NOW

  • PlayerP

    BULLSCHIT!!!!! LIES!!!! This is what makes me angry about this rkelly bs coming out again now. Deflection! First off...just like kelly, weinsteins proclivities have BEEN KNOWN!!! I worked for one production house and I was instructed to stay clear of him and to not engage him outside of anything absolutely necessary. This not only came from a colleague but my boss who was also a piece of u know to most of the women in his life. My boss wouldn't even let me bring him water or coffee if he asked...that's how well known it was, that he was a dirt bag.
    I'm not absolving him and I stopped supporting kelly long ago...it's just white men get away with much worse. If child predator that married his adoptive daughter at 17, and then his own bio daughter comes forward saying he was diddling her too, still goes on to have an illustrious career with out all this public scrutiny, then we shouldn't be talking about kelly either. Don't you see that we will crucify our own for them??? We need to take a page out of this white mans book and show some solidarity.
    I am not saying that kelly should continue to prosper or not have consequence, I'm saying let this schit play out the weinstiens schit is, quietly.
    I worked with a facility that provided re-entry services for parolees. There was a yak there who went to prison for letting her then bf have sex with her THREE MONTH OLD DAUGHTER and she participated in the act as well. Do you know she did less than a year????
    So let's call out, do docu series on, and demand justice on them all.

  • PlayerP

    Thank you!!!

  • Candie P

    And this is why so many rappers, singers and producers who worked with R Kelly, despite knowing he was a scumbag did not want to participate in Surviving R Kelly. Look at how y'all chewing John Legend out, then you cry wolf when Jay Z or Swiss Beats didn't speak up in the docuseries. SMH. Make it Make Sense guys! you can't have it both ways.

  • dru and neil

    He is...if you are going to be a man and stand up for women and girls, just do it right or not at all. He still tried to absolve R. Kelly of wrong doing. John Legend said what he said and is unapologetic about it.

    They are all also guilty of being perverts! Liking and messing with young girls is bad enough, but were they serial offenders purposely praying on young women? Maybe, Idk. Did they mistreat these young girls/women to the point of almost torture, beatings, withholding food, made them do sexual things so degrading that they can't even speak of, brainwashing, etc. Black or white mofo needs to be locked away and deal with those sick mental issues.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    The way I see it the Black community needs all of its garbage taken out. If the White Community want s to protect their perverts, that is there problem.
    Ya sound real strange that you are upset about Black perverts receiving a harsher sentence that white perverts.
    This is one time a do not care about racism IF YOU DID IT.
    It shows THEIR sickness not ours.

  • SunSoy

    There is no such thing as the "Black Community". The community is where you live not every "Black Person" is American born or have the same mindset. Bringing race into the Criminal justice system is an American Black thing. I never had an issue with the Criminal justice system. You do the crime do the time period. Making everything about race and fake outrage is an American Black thing. Where was the outrage when R Kelly was actually on trial now your mad.

  • SunSoy

    Please do not make this about race.

  • SunSoy

    Allayiah family could of had him locked up. All of this could of been avoided.

  • SunSoy

    This is not about race or Black Women. Women and girls all over the globe have faced sexual abuse. Stop it with the white people don't care about Black women or girls crap. The community is where you live not a race or color. Not every Black person is American or come from or live in the hood or ghetto. This is not about race! ?!

  • SunSoy

    Where was was the outrage when R Kelly was actually on trial? I did not see the so-called Black Community say anything. Now people want to have the fake outrage when this has been known for years and never once told radio to stop playing his music.

  • Reina1718

    Thats how you took it but thats not what it is. The point i was making is the music played now is so disrespectful to women from our own black men. We need to do better thats all

  • SunSoy

    This comes from Black people who want an apology for everything example Roseanne and Megan Kelly. Black people are on social media more than anyone example the negativity which is Black twitter. Black people I am a victim started this.

  • Reina1718

    They wont

  • Eileen

    Just because white folks do it doesn't make it right...wrong is wrong no matter who does it but black folks like to say well i did the same thang and I got mo time dan de white folks...black people look how foolish you sound with white folks its stupid with back folks its black and stupid. Just do the right thang and live ya best life!

  • rayne215

    Weinstein has had several docu series, the last in march on Frontline. people acting like weinstein has been ignored.

  • rayne215

    "Where was the outrage when R Kelly was actually on trial now your mad." why is everyone saying this? how old are yall? it was ALOT of outrage during the time of his trial. and people have always been vocal about r kelly. its only so much the general public can do

  • Li-Wright

    Oh pleez!!!! Stop with the apologizing....pleez!

  • Li-Wright

    John needs to stop apologizing for working Harvey (who helped him!) and R. Kelly....pleez! stop it. Trying to clean up mess....too late.

  • #IMWithTupac

    This is the same person that attends “ Spirit Cooking “ events with Marina Abramovic And has hosted these events himself.

    I know he’s trying to garner goodwill but he’s right there with all the pedos. So him doing this R. Kelly thing won’t get him back in any good graces with me.

    And defending Weinstein as “ Oh I didn’t know”
    GTFOHWTBS.

  • SunSoy

    Radio stations still played his music R Kelly still had a career which should of been over a long time ago. The general public has to do what the so-called black community did not.

  • SunSoy

    Women all over the globe experience sexual abuse. I do not listen to that type of music. I listen to good music from around the world.

  • SunSoy

    I do not subject to " from our own black men" way of thinking.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    You sound ridiculous. Your statement has nothing to do with what I wrote & to whom I was responding. Go be fake woke elsewhere.

  • Reina1718

    Honey keep reading then.. im not changing my words for ur feelings...

  • Reina1718

    Im not saying the music is causing sexual abuse, what im saying is it starts within. Im a black woman and alot of this new rap music is degrading & the majority of rappers are black...we need to do better.

  • Liah

    I’ve never really been a John Legend fan but I truly respect him for speaking out...We all know the industry knew what was going on with R Kelly!?
    R Kelly really thinks he’s untouchable...He’s not...They’re going to burn his a** this time because white people are uncomfortable ?

  • currvalicious

    Truth...

  • dontgetblocked

    What a joke! Everyone including Oprah and the Obamas who sent their daughter to intern at Weinstein's company knew he was a rapist and molester. They knew about the payoffs and the high profile actresses who had shared their stories long before last year. Legend and the others CHOSE to work with a known rapist. John acts like he knows everything but he didn't know about Weinstein? He can kiss my azz. He hates black people...ask his relatives and he's the first to put another black man down.

  • dontgetblocked

    Those events were they drink period blood and splerm?? My Gawd!

  • dontgetblocked

    That's what I'm saying. We only want to condemn our own when white men are far worse predators.

  • dontgetblocked

    dancing...and throwing my hands in the air.

  • dontgetblocked

    Furthermore...I don't need John Legend to defend me... a black woman as long as he has that whore he slept with on the day they met on his arm. Who sleeps with a video model after the shoot and then wife's her up? When you date or marry a decent black woman...then you can defend me. He needs to get off his pedestal. He sits back and critiques everyone but is messier than most.

  • Logan Roberts

    John & Chrissy has always given me fake vibes.

  • jujumanji

    Legend getting bold in these tweets. I LOVE IT. He is right!

  • Rhondalousey

    What?

  • Rhondalousey

    I wonder is weinstein's fat azz going down for his transgressions or is it just for the black man?

    I am not a Black American. I don't believe in the woke crap Black Americans created stop it with the fake outrage and victim mentality.

  • SunSoy

    Learn how to spell your words before you type moron!

    Chrissy wears her beard well :P

    Nothing I wrote has to do with being woke you idiot. I am not defending him you idiot. Can you even read and comprehend you idiot!

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Legend is a racist hypocrite. And he’s married to a drunk.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    I'm so confused that someone is getting condemned for speaking up against evil. Human beings are indeed getting more stupid

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I agree!!!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Idiot? Typical name calling form one with limited thinking. Even if you had a point you just invalidated it.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Troll.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Racist Troll.

  • freelancepimp .

    Told you he was a Bitch! It doesn't make you a hero when you pick and choose who you come for. It's OK to go after RKelly. The question is why didn't he go after and publicly condemn Weinstein also. GTFOH. Old school we called that a Weasel. Now days he just a lil Bitch!
