A lot of R. Kelly's former collaborators have spoken out against the artist following the airing of #SurvivingRKelly. Kanye West, however, isn't one of them.— Complex (@Complex) January 14, 2019

Kanye West has another controversial opinion. During a Sunday service event, West took a moment to give his unwanted thoughts on the R. Kelly situation, as well as the upcoming documentary on Michael Jackson's sex abuse.
In one of the clips recorded from the event, West can be heard saying, "They just gonna pull up full documentaries on him. Then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary. ... We can all enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn't going to go there today. If we're gonna tear down artists, let's go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Lourve. Let's take down all the art."
Kim immediately went on Twitter today to do damage control for her husband, stating he's allowed to have an opinion:
I’m going to nip this in the bud right now. Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are cancelling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect. The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) January 14, 2019
I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior. My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) January 14, 2019
