Celebrity public relations and crisis manager Andrew Wyatt chimed in on the case against R. Kelly Friday, stating that the musician is “innocent until proven guilty” and called out Gloria Allred for slithering to the spotlight.
Wyatt, who represents Bill Cosby as both his spokesman and crisis manager is a well-known arch nemesis of famed women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred, who represents a number of Cosby accusers.
“Unfortunately, I cannot speak to any alleged new evidence against R. Kelly, however, isn’t there’s a thing called, innocent until proven guilty.'” Wyatt told yc.news. “It seems, in this new America, created by Gloria AwfulRed, the United States Constitution doesn’t apply to black men.”
This afternoon the R&B musician was charged with ten counts of sexual abuse charges dating back decades, but it isn’t his first rodeo.
It was 2008 and prosecutors spent more than six years trying to get the R&B star R. Kelly into court on charges of child pornography, but jurors only took a few hours to declare him not guilty on all 14 counts.
“I don’t know Mr. Kelly nor have I spoke with Mr. Kelly directly, but if I remember correctly, he was found not guilty many years ago by 12 jurors, made up of eight white individuals and four black individuals.”
“As I predicted yesterday, the wheels of justice are turning and now R. Kelly is required to face allegations against him in the criminal justice system.” Gloria Allred said following the news of R. Kelly’s indictment. “This may not be the only prosecution of Mr. Kelly, because we are aware of other open investigations in other jurisdictions, but I am very glad that he has been indicated in Cook County and that this day has finally come for Mr. Kelly.”
“She’s the mother of this ‘race war and sex war’ in America,” long-time arch nemesis of Gloria Allred said. “Thus, organize a Lynch mob, draft a new Constitution in AwfulRed’s New America called ‘The 21st Century To Kill A Mockingbird.'”
Kelly is expected to turn himself in and appear before a judge tomorrow morning for a bond hearing. Meanwhile, Wyatt is in Pennsylvania visiting his client Bill Cosby to discuss appellate matters.
As for joining the Kelly camp, Wyatt told yc.news that they “are in conversation only.”
