Danish radio network has banned all radio stations from playing R Kelly’s songs as a result of the sexual assault allegations against him.
This is coming a day after R Kelly announced a new tour of Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, despite an alleged long history of sexual, physical, and mental abuse of young women and underage girls including surrounding himself with sex slaves.
In a fresh statement by Bauer Media, which runs The Voice, NOVA, Radio 100, Pop FM, Radio Soft and MyRock in Denmark, reaching around 2.7million listeners each week in a country of 5.8million, they said they have barred Kelly after the ‘very serious’ claims.
As a radio we have a responsibility on who we give the airtime to,’ said Bauer Media official Tobias Nielsen. ‘It’s very serious and we feel we can’t have him on the playlists.’
