At about four minutes into her talk show, Williams started criticizing a grassroots organization that's campaigning to shut R. Kelly out of the music industry. "What is this 10 years too late?" said Williams during her "Hot Topics" segment.
Although Kelly was found not guilty of peeing on an underaged girl in 2008, he was recently accused of holding several women against their will in an "abusive cult." The R&B singer also famously married a then 15-year-old Aaliyah in 1994 when he was 27. But Williams stated that it's all "voluntary."
"Aaliyah voluntarily married him when she was 15 years old. And her parents voluntarily let her do it," she said. "And that little girl that I saw for my own eyeballs that he urinated on and he had his way with was there at his house. She let it go down." As for the women in the alleged cult, Williams asks "Where are the parents?"
But oddly enough, Williams, who shared that she saw the infamous tape when it came out, said that she "will never 'Step in the Name of Love,'" alluding to Kelly's popular song of the same name. "This has nothing to do with #MeToo, R. Kelly is just a very, very sick man," she said before adding that "if you still listen to his music, fine."
But she didn't let her thoughts die there. About 15 minutes in, Williams says that she's "sick of this #MeToo movement."
"I love that people are speaking up for the first time and speaking out and everything, but now it's got, I look at all men like you're a #MeToo, all of them, all of them, which is not fair," explained Williams.
As for the grassroots group, who uses the hashtag #MuteRKelly, they've contributed to at least eight R. Kelly concerts being canceled including shows in Memphis and Dallas.
