(AllHipHop News) The man who has accused Afrika Bambaataa of molesting him as a teenager is calling for an immediate ban KRS-One, whom he labeled “worse than a Catholic priest.”
“He [KRS-One] is a disgrace to every living man, woman and children all over the world. He poses a real threat to every child in this world,” Ronald ‘Bee-Stinger” Savage told AllHipHop.com.
“He is worse than any catholic priest who has molested a child,” Savage continued. “Any DJ, radio station or video show still playing his music SHAME ON YOU.”
The former New York politician has accused Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa of molesting him as a teenager.
And now he’s speaking out against recent statements made by rapper KRS-One.
A firestorm of criticism erupted against Bam and The Zulu Nation for their statements, after Ronald Savage claimed Afrika Bambaataa molested him in his memoir “Impulses Urges and Fantasies.”
Bambaataa and several top leaders were eventually removed from The Zulu Nation for their response to the crisis, but not before several notable Hip-Hop artists and activists weighed in on the matter.
Hip-Hop artists like Talib Kweli, Lord Jamar spoke out against Afrika Bambaataa, but the pioneer found a staunch defender KRS-One, who most recently refused to condemn Bam during a Q&A in Birmingham, England, saying “anyone who has a problem with Afrika Bambaataa should quit Hip-Hop.”
“To turn around and say that an alleged child molester, because it’s Afrika Bambaataa, should be untouchable and pioneers of Hip-Hop should get a pass if they molested a child, is unforgettable,” Ronald Savage told AllHipHop.com.
According to the non-profit child advocacy group Darkness To Light and stats released as recent as 2015, African-American children are twice as likely to be molested more than white children.
It’s something Ronald Savage said was a problem in the community that is being grossly ignored.
“We have young kids out here. Being molested is not something new. This goes on in the black community, but it’s not talked about,” Ronald Savage told AllHipHop.com. “The voice of Hip-Hop is very powerful. For you not to talk about it or make statements like KRS, that’s like a slap in the face to every victim out there like myself.”
As of press time, KRS-One has not replied to the growing criticism about his latest comments surrounding the allegations against Afrika Bambaataa. But the rap legend’s social media accounts are being trolled by people criticizing his most recent comments.
Read Ronald “Bee-Stinger” Savage’s full statement against KRS-One and check out the full interview with AllHipHop.com below the statement:
I Ronald “Bee-Stinger” Savage am going on record worldwide to state: KRS-One is the poster boy for keeping rapists and pedophiles safe.
He is a disgrace to every living man, woman and children all over the world. He poses a real threat to every child in this world.
He is worse than any catholic priest who has molested a child. Any DJ, radio station or video show still playing his music SHAME ON YOU.
KRS-One has offended the many child victims who have come forth after years of dealing with the pain of being molested by the Godfather of Hip-Hop, whom have taken this brave step for everyone who has ever been molested before, then to be slapped in the face by Hip-Hop’s own KRS-One, whom once was homeless and was embraced by the music industry with his testimony about being homeless.
Then to turn around and say that an alleged child molester, because it’s Afrika Bambaataa, should be untouchable and pioneers of Hip-Hop should get a pass if they molested a child is unforgettable.
I Ronald Savage, a child victim of one of the pioneers of Hip-Hop is demanding from the entire music industry, the immediate ban of KRS-One, from the music industry.
