With disgraced singer R.Kelly recently being found guilty of sex crimes against minors, many are questioning whether it’s possible to seperate the music from the artist. What’s your opinion?

Jack Campos, San Antonio
Got to ask yourself this question: Would you listen to his music if it was someone you knew or a loved one?

Tawona S., Washington, D.C.
Yes, people do it every time they shop at Walmart. The only difference is some people need Walmart.

Tonya Ray, Washington, D.C.
This man is a musical genius. So he will forever be on the airwaves. People still support Trump, and he’s worse.

Quisha Good, Fort Worth, Texas
We’ve probably done it more times than we know. Some weirdos get away with it, or their weirdness is overlooked.

Deniece Williams, Greenbelt, Md.
No, I can’t separate the artist from the music. And even if I could, I’m not that big of a fan anyway. I’m tired of hearing “Step in the Name of Love” at every family function.
