(AllHipHop News) The #MuteRKelly movement continues.

R. Kelly has received much backlash after the "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary was aired on Lifetime, which showcased real-life testimonies of women who have fallen victim to his sexual abuse.

Early Saturday morning (January 12) protesters and supporters of the movement gathered outside the singer’s studio near the West Side of Chicago for the second time this week.

Outside 219 N. Justine St., many shared their own personal stories of survivors and called for an end to the “Ignition” singer’s career, while another group of R. Kelly supporters confronted the protesters.

"This is bigger than R. Kelly. Yes, R. Kelly is in the moment, but we are going to use this moment to educate that this is in our homes, churches, workforces, schools, entertainment industries, politics and overall streets. Our girls are at risk," protester Anthony Clark said.

More protests are slated to take place on Monday.
