"Drop R. Kelly," protestors chanted as they entered the lobby of Sony headquarters with boxes of petitions.

"I'm here today to call on RCA to drop R. Kelly, to drop sexual abuser R Kelly from their label immediately," Natalie Green, of the women's advocacy group Ultraviolet, said.

Ultraviolet is part of a coalition that's reacted to the docu-series Surviving R. Kelly.

"We stand in solidarity with black women and girls because we believe black women survivors," Sonja said.

Sonja said R Kelly's behavior has been ignored for decades, and that it's time for personal and corporate accountability.
