YouTube deletes Kelly songs a week after he was convicted of sexual abuse

One week after R. Kelly was convicted of sexual abuse and trafficking charges, YouTube deleted two of the R&B star's official channels.

Both channels - RKellyTV and the singer's Vevo account no longer exist.

"We can confirm that we have deleted two channels linked to R. Kelly in accordance with our guidelines," Ivy Choi, a YouTube spokeswoman, said in a statement.

According to YouTube regulations, the platform can close the channels of people accused of very serious crimes if they are convicted or found guilty of crimes, and if the content of these music materials is closely related to these crimes.

However, his music has not been completely banned. As some materials that are published in other fan channels are still public. As YouTube has the right to delete only music channels recorded under the name of the convict.
