Talk about awkward.
Kelly Rowland had quite the experience Thursday when anti-fur protesters crashed her book signing, chanting phrases all while the singer looked on.
Rowland was hosting a signing for her new book “Whoa, Baby!”, when four people walked to the front of the room.
“This goes out to all the animals that were tortured and murdered so Kelly can wear their fur,” one protester says. “Fur trade, death trade,” they begin chanting. “Kelly Rowland has blood on her hands. Blood, blood, blood on her hands.”
After they repeat the chants a couple times, the awkwardness of the situation settles in as no one steps in to remove the protesters from the room. Most of the people are just standing, watching with blank stares.
“Yes, please get them out of here,” Rowland can be seen saying to her team.
Her team, and what appears to be a few security personnel, then walk over to escort them out.
A slay, even under pressure.
