John Legend is taking a stand against R. Kelly.

Legend — who recently appeared in Lifetime’s docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly — took to Twitter Thursday night to debunk the idea that he’s “courageous” for drawing awareness to R. Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse of underage African-American girls.

The All of Me singer also called R. Kelly a “serial child rapist.”

“To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn’t feel risky at all,” he tweeted. “I believe these women and don’t give a f—k about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision.”

The 40-year-old entertainer then gave a shoutout to Surviving R. Kelly producer Dream Hampton, writing: “We should all thank my friend @dreamhampton for her very necessary work to create #SurvivingRKelly. These survivors deserved to be lifted up and heard. I hope it gets them closer to some kind of justice.”
