Dr. Luke wasted no time cleaning up his social media accounts after a judge ruled against Kesha’s plea to be released from her recording contract. In particular, the producer deleted a tweet of Kesha sleeping with the caption, “Damn my artists work hard!”
Kesha alleges that Luke drugged her and raped her, so it’s incredibly suspicious that Luke would pick this tweet to go back and delete. Especially considering it was posted back in 2009. That didn’t stop fans from finding it though.
You can’t deny that this is incredibly suspicious, and definitely proves that without a doubt that he’s got something to hide. Kesha was visibly affected during the court hearing the other day, bursting into tears following the ruling.
That face is not the face of someone who is lying. That is the face of a woman who has experienced extreme trauma, and the fact that Sony and a judge ruled against her plea is indicative of the type of world we live in. And we as the human race should feel collectively ashamed that this has not only happened to Kesha, but so many other women within, and outside, of the music industry.
There is no good reason why Kesha should not be free of her abuser. Sony released Zayn Malik from his recording situation with One Direction on account that he was not happy with the direction the music was taking. He is now an RCA artist, and new single “Pillowtalk” has hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Kesha has written for and worked with so many artists, including Britney Spears, Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus. She has proven her versatility and work ethic many times, but it’s clear that Sony is more concerned with maintaining the brand that Dr. Luke has made at this woman’s expense, than the woman herself.
Sony supports rape. Point. Blank. Period.
This is not the first time Sony has put financial gain in front of an artist’s well being. Mariah Carey and Michael Jackson were on the receiving end of forms of abuse at the hands of Sony’s
Over 100,000 people have now called for a boycott of Sony in response to their denial of Kesha and the court ruling. The petition, “I Stand With Kesha” can be found here. Do your part and sign it.
