The program shared interviews with people regarding their experiences with the controversial singer.
Among those interviewed was popular singer John Legend, whom Dash applauded for publicly condemning Kelly. "I feel compelled to do something".

Kelly has gotten away with these crimes for over a decade. Investigators have made contact with the family of Asante McGee and the attorney for the family of Jocelyn Savage, two of the women who were profiled in the film.
"We can not do anything related to these allegations without the cooperation of victims and witnesses and that is why I'm here today, to encourage anyone who has information to please come forward", she said.
"Absolutely not, and I tell people all the time, man", Kelly told The Associated Press in 2012.
