Cara Delevingne Addresses Losing Thousands of Followers for Speaking Out Against R. Kelly

Cara Delevingne is not bothered about losing followers after speaking out about R. Kelly, who is back in the headlines after the airing of Surviving R. Kelly, the Lifetime docu-series which addresses sexual abuse allegations against the singer.

“This is me realizing I lost more than 50,000 followers yesterday after posting about @rkelly,” the 26-year-old model and actress captioned a picture of her making a goofy face on her Instagram.

“Every time I say something real, something I truly believe, something others may think of as controversial, something that makes people think and ask questions, I lose followers. The followers I lose clearly don’t agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards. In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation IS NOT VIOLENCE btw, it’s communication. Something I still struggle with. I have always been taught to avoid confrontation at all costs, which caused me to be silent most of my life, silence causes suppression and suppression causes sickness. Not anymore! Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly.”

“I finished the Surviving R Kelly documentary last night and I am so shocked and outraged at how long this has gone on. My heart goes out to all the victims of his emotional and physical abuse and their families,” she wrote in her original post.
