Taraji P. Henson Catches Major Backlash for Questioning Why There’s #MuteRKelly But No #MuteHarveyWeinstein [Video]

Taraji P. Henson has come under fire for questioning why it seems R. Kelly is being held more accountable than Harvey Weinstein.

She took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday and shared a a series of videos, first of her looking up the hashtag and fan pages under “Mute R. Kelly.”

Of course, she found a few.

She then repeated her search — only this time she looked for similar pages and hashtags about Harvey Weinstein. She didn’t find many.

Taraji then shared an emoji and “hmm,” suggesting she was confused as to why there was backlash for one and seemingly not the other.

Needless to say, people aren’t having it.



‘Surviving R. Kelly’ producer Dream Hampton offered her thoughts on Taraji’s questioning.





Furthermore, Taraji’s former manager faced some sexual harassment allegations of his own and Taraji was quick to issue a statement about how she was ‘saddened’ and how ‘this has to stop’ — where’s that compassion now?

Update: Taraji has responded to the backlash.
