#MuteRKelly Cancel his concert in Sri Lanka
What can be done to make sure the Sri Lankan authorities deny RKelly Visa?
Because if he's allowed to have a concert here we're sure plenty of kids are going to turn up without a clue in the world simply because the "king" of R&B is in the country and that's just messed up.
No child or teen should be allowed to go for a concert of a proven, yes proven, pedophile.
Or are we just going to ignore him marrying a 15 year old illegally with forged documentation to make it look like she was 18?
Quite easy to forget Aaliya now that she's dead huh?
- President Maithripala Sirisena if you could make a big ha-ho over Enrique's concert and if our government had the capability to ban Akon from entering the country please do something worthwhile and ban the proven Pedophile R Kelly from being able to perform in Sri Lanka.
