Erykah Badu Helped Define ‘Wokeness.’ Now She’s a Target
The R&B star and comic relief of “What Men Want” built her legend on the pursuit of enlightenment. It’s taken her to hostile territory



The singer has recently been accused of spreading compassion in reckless and upsetting directions, pausing a concert last month to announce that she was “putting up a prayer” for R. Kelly, the R&B hitmaker who faces mounting allegations of sexual misconduct, including with underage girls. She went on, amid wails from the audience, to make a blanket call for healing, asserting that “everybody involved has been hurt and victimized in some kind of way.”
