The premiere of the Lifetime movie “Surviving R. Kelly” came to a halt after attendants had to evacuate because of a gun threat.
So…Y’ALL ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS!
Tonight was a private screening of the @lifetimetv documentary #survivingRkelly where his survivors, parents of survivors, and folks featured in the doc were gathered and a BOMB THREAT was called in and the event shut down. #muteRkelly

According to Lifetime, the anonymous call came from Chicago and there were no injuries at the venue as a result of the evacuation.
Some of Kelly’s accusers were in attendance for the premiere as was #MeToo founder Tarana Burke.
The #SurvivingRKelly premiere was just evacuated because we received a threat. The survivors were whisked away. I have the full video on IG and I'm gonna post clips in this thread

Officials at Lifetime will convene later to discuss the possibility of rescheduling the premiere for another date.
Do you think Lifetime should reschedule the premiere? Would you go back if it were rescheduled?
