R Kelly Dropped From Fashion Meets Music Festival

FMMF

When you are an organizer trying to debut a brand new music festival you generally want to avoid bad press. Unfortunately for the upcoming Fashion Meets Music Festival they were met with overwhelming criticism when they announced one of their headlining artists would be R Kelly. The rapper is no stranger to controversy, and it seems the festival owner(s) did not expect to receive such an immediate backlash online.

If you were one of those who were upset by the announcement, then you may be happy to hear that R Kelly has been dropped from the festival. Though they did not officially state why he’s no longer on the lineup, it is likely because of the social media backlash they received. You can read a tweet by the festival making the announcement below the jump.
