Youtube has removed all of R&B superstar R. Kelly’s channels — except for his music — in the wake of his recent convictions of federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges.
After September’s convictions, Youtube deleted RKellyTV and RKellyVev from its platform. The Google-owned site also said Kelly will be barred from creating any future content, according to Reuters.
The online video service claimed that it removed the channels in accordance with its creator responsibility guidelines which was updated in 2018 to include a morality clause for a user’s actions outside the platform.
“We can confirm that we have terminated two channels linked to R. Kelly in accordance with our creator responsibility guidelines,” a YouTube spokesperson told Reuters.
