Kesha’s ongoing legal battles with her former producer Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, have yet to be finalized, but the singer isn’t letting anything stop her from being an advocate for her fans.
Since the proceedings began in 2014, Kesha has remained under the professional control of Dr. Luke and his Kemosabe Records label and has been unable to release new music.
Kesha has made a handful of appearances over the past 12 months, including a duet with Zedd on his song “True Colours” at Coachella and a performance at Dylan Fest, a Nashville event that celebrated the 75th birthday of Bob Dylan.
The singer has been supported by some of the biggest names in pop music, including Taylor Swift and Adele, and now Kesha is once again supporting others.
As an animal rights activist and supporter of the LGBTQ community, Kesha is standing up to online bullying in a new campaign called #HackHarassment, which is a partnership between Intel, Vox Media and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
I am honored to participate in Hack Harassment’s campaign. This issue is near and dear to my heart, as I have been bullied online for many years. I know i’m not alone in that. I know many people experience negative and hateful comments from perfect strangers. The Internet and social media can be so helpful in many ways, but one downside is that some people feel it’s ok to hide behind a screen and be hateful to others. I, for one, believe no one should be subjected to harassment online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nyL5G495_4
The new series of ads show Kesha in front of a black screen as hateful words and messages appear around her.
In another ad, Kesha reads real comments posted by students about their classmates, displaying the harshness of words when said out loud.
