After a quote from filmmaker dream hampton about Questlove's response to being asked to give an interview for the R. Kelly doc began to circulate on Twitter, Questlove quickly responded. He said that he was asked to be in the "genius", "good times" part of the documentary and he didn't want to go on camera and talk about how brilliant R. Kelly was:
I always thought Kels was trash. My reason for declining the RKelly docu that I support 10000000 percent is I didn’t wanna be in the “good times” portion of the doc, like stanning for his “genius”. I was asked to talk about his genius. I do not nor have I EVER stanned for him.
Just wanna make that abundantly clear in a non “he doth protest too much” way. That quote makes it look like I’m protecting him. I’m thinking “damn I don’t wanna be the one guy I always am in documentaries fawning over someone I detest. So make ZERO mistake on my positioning.
dream hampton responded and said that's not what she was asking at all.
Questlove deleted his tweets after dream hampton responded and retweeted one of her tweets linking to the trailer for the documentary. She also deleted her tweets to him.
