Mister Cee has questions for Charlamagne.
To many viewers’ surprise, Power 105’s “Breakfast Club” host appeared on an episode of the new Lifetime docu-series, “Surviving R. Kelly.”
On Sunday, DJ Mister Cee posted a statement to his Instagram account that reflected the sentiments of Charlamagne critics. It read, “Somebody please explain to me how Charlamagne who was accused of sexual assault can go on TV & comment about R. Kelly who was accused of sexual assault?”
In the post’s caption, he wrote, “Don’t Y’all Deflect The Question By Talking About My Gay Activities. Just Answer The Question!”
Charlamagne was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting the then-15-year-old Jessica Reid when he was 22. He was arrested and served with a warrant for criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree, but the case was dropped in court and he pleaded guilty to “contributing to the delinquency of a minor,” and received three years’ probation. The radio host had addressed the incident in 2013, denying the rape allegation.

Mister Cee proceeded to engage with Instagram users in the comment of the post.
On Saturday (January 5th), “Surviving R. Kelly” executive producer dream hampton took to Twitter to comment on her inclusion of Charlamagne in the doc, writing “I interviewed him before the story abt him broke but should have cut him altogether, rather than limit his appearance. It was a huge mistake.”
The tweets hampton alluded to were Charlamagne’s insensitive jokes on sexual abuse and R. Kelly from 2010 and 2009.

Mister Cee and Charlamagne reportedly have had a longstanding radio rivalry between New York’s Hot 97 and Power 105.1.
Charlamagne has yet to respond.
