Recently, Taraji P. Henson has sparked the outrage for comparing the use of the MuteRKelly hashtag to #MuteWeinstein and #MuteHarveyWeinstein. According to media reports, “In since-deleted Instagram posts, the actress pointed out the lack of posts calling for the muting of disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein ― who is set to stand trial in May for some of the sexual assault allegations against him, hints that R. Kelly is overly criticized because of his race”.
Some media analysts believe that Taraji Henson completely missed the point. They argued that Harvey Weinstein is facing a sexual assault trial for the crimes that he had committed, whereas, R. Kelly is still free after abusing and molesting multiple underaged girls. Some media analysts believe that Taraji Henson is right as she only pointed out the double-standard in media reporting of the two cases.
This scenario instigated a debate across social media regarding whether Taraji Henson is right to compare R. Kelly with Harvey Weinstein?
