Kesha Petition Goes Viral On Social Media
As we recently reported, Kesha is currently trapped in a tough legal battle. However, her fans have been determined to change that by offering endless support through social media channels.
Now, her Animals have even started a petition, which is directed at Sony Music CEO Doug Morris. The Change.org petition, which has collected over 10,000 signatures, further summarizes the ongoing legal matters between Kesha, Sony Music, and Dr. Luke:
Kesha claims Dr. Luke drugged and raped her, persuaded her to take drugs, and made disparaging comments about her weight (comparing her figure to a “fucking refrigerator”). As Kesha has made the bold decision to speak out about her abuser, she has also put her career on hold. Recently, Sony Music has spoken out on the matter and sided with Gottwald, claiming Kesha is “extorting” them to “renegotiate her contract”.
The goal of the petition is to urge the Sony Music CEO “to release Kesha from her contract with Dr. Luke and Kemosabe Records, allowing her to record with another producer or label in a safe, non-abusive environment.” Additionally, the 30-second video below gives a brief explanation of the petition’s goal.
The singer-songwriter noticed the overwhelming support from her fans on social media. Kesha replied to a tweet by Twitter user @KeshaTODAY, whose initial tweet contained the hashtag #KeshaDeservesFreedom.
