The backlash for R. Kelly continues following Lifetime’s explosive 6 part docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelly‘ which concluded on Saturday night.

The mute R. Kelly and Cancel R. Kelly movements have been reignited and hotter than ever following the shocking claims from the singers reported accusers, family, past friends and colleagues who appeared on the series.

Kels has seen support from many of his industry peers (many whom have claimed him as an inspiration) come to a screeching halt in support the women. One of the latest to ride in solidarity with the victims is R&B singer, Tank.

The singer took to Instagram on Sunday to declare that he no longer stands with or supports R. Kelly, and he had a very scathing message to go along with it. Get into it below.

I lot of artists, song writers, producers, record execs, etc are very confused as to how to respond to what they’ve seen and heard. We’ve all been inspired by this man. We’ve all been witnesses to his musical genius. We have shaped and molded talent we sign after his musical image. We’ve invested so much of ourselves into this man that it’s hard for us to let go. I no longer have that issue. I whole heartedly apologize for not coming to this realization sooner. I CANOT separate the music from the monster! My 3 black daughters won’t let me. What hurts even more are the facilitators around him. His team, his record company, the promoters, the radio stations! There has to be a line drawn. Enough has to be enough at some point. Who are we saying is worth protecting if we let this continue? I choose the lives of these young black girls! I’m sick to my stomach! Let me also say this! There are more men guilty of these crimes! Lets make sure none of them slip through the cracks every again! You are no king because kings don’t treat queens like this! #RnBMoney #TheGeneral
