Erykah Badu has released a statement clearing up the comments she made about R. Kelly at a recent show.

 “I’m puttin’ up a prayer right now for R. Kelly. I hope he sees the light of day if he done all those things we seen on t.v. and heard those ladies talk about. I hope he sees the light of day and comes forward.

What’d y’all say? F*ck him? That’s not love. That’s not unconditional love. But what if one of the people who was assaulted by R. Kelly … We gonna crucify them too?”

Some fans took Badu's words as her defending R. Kelly and she trended online as social media were ready to cancel Badu along with the "Ignition" singer.

She responded to the backlash by speaking of unconditional love and claimed that she wants healing for all.
