R Kelly documentary premiere evacuated after threats

“The location was evacuated, no shots were fired. No arrests have been made and the investigation is onoging,” New York Police Department told the BBC.

The six-part series focuses on the women who have accused the singer of sexual misconduct, which he denies.

#MeToo founder Tarana Burke was among several panellists at the screening.

She tweeted: “The worst of it isn’t the threat though because it didn’t appear to be credible, but the survivors who had to endure his harassment. #MuteRKelly”

April Reign, who created the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag, was also at the screening and said police were on the scene.
