Facebook removes page attacking R. Kelly accusers - NBC News

A Facebook page that sought to discredit women who accused R. Kelly of abuse has been pulled for violating the social media network's terms of service.

  A Facebook page that sought to discredit women who accused R. Kelly of abuse has been pulled for violating the social media network's terms of service.

  Facebook removed it Monday after posts appeared attacking at least two of Kelly's accusers who took part in a docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" that aired late last week.

  The Facebook page had more than 5,000 followers as of early Monday afternoon and had images and screenshots of alleged text messages between Kelly and some of his accusers, according to FastCompany.

  A Facebook representative said the page was removed because it violated the company's community standards.

  Representatives for Kelly declined to comment to NBC News about the docuseries or the "Surviving Lies" Facebook page.
