R. Kelly performs during the Holiday Jam at Fox Theater on Dec. 27, 2016 in Atlanta.

In the wake of Lifetime's six-part documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, which wrapped up on Saturday night, a Facebook page called "Surviving Lies" surfaced, running ads that discredit Kelly's accusers. The page has since been taken down.

According to TMZ, the page was in conjunction with a not-yet-launched website called SurvivingLies.com, which will attempt to expose all the series' accusers as liars and reveal their motivations.

"The Page violated our Community Standards and has been removed," a Facebook rep told Buzzfeed. "We do not tolerate bullying or sharing someone's private contact information and take action on content that violates our policies as soon as we’re aware.”
