Though he didn’t namecheck the label, Antonoff, a founding member of Fun, Bleachers and producer of hit records by Lorde, Taylor Swift and others, is signed to RCA, as is Kelly, who is facing shocking new accusations of sexual abuse.
A new documentary, R. Kelly: Sex, Girls and Videotapes, which aired Wednesday night (March 28) on BBC Three, detailed a "sex dungeon" where Kelly is said to have trained women -- including a 14-year-old girl -- to be his "pets."
The controversial R&B artist has been dogged by lurid claims since his reported wedding to Aaliyah, including accusations of having sex with underage girls, possessing child pornography, and, most recently, having an abusive sex "cult." He has denied all of the claims.
RCA, a subsidiary of Sony Music, hasn’t commented on the substance of Antonoff’s tweet.
