One of the biggest criticisms of the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary was its inclusion of radio personality, Charlamagne Tha God, who in his past has also been accused of sexual assault. To complicate matters even further, old tweets recently resurfaced in which “The Breakfast Club” host appears to be supporting R. Kelly and his sex tape with a minor.
“The most important criticism I’ve gotten is having Charlamagne, who is a radio personality in New York City, on to talk about R. Kelly when he himself was accused about 10, 15 years ago of sexual assault. So, that criticism is one that I have to look at,” said hampton on the radio show “The Takeaway.”
“We definitely limited the amount of time that he got,” hampton added. “He was so clear and so forceful in his condemnation of R. Kelly. If I could have interviewed him after the story broke about his sexual assault allegations in his own past, I would have asked him to reckon with his own past on camera. But I wish that I had not included him in this documentary.”
