The song's deletion follows Gaga's public apology today for collaborating with the R&B singer in the wake of renewed attention on Kelly's decades of alleged sexual abuse, examined in Lifetime's new documentary series Surviving R. Kelly.

"R. Kelly is an abuse victim, and I don't mean ever to minimize that", she says.

She also said that she would be removing the song from all streaming services.

"As a mother of a young daughter, I can't even tell you how upset I would be if it was my child", protester Melanie Fitch said.

Gaga spoke out against the embattled singer in a lengthy post on Instagram and Twitter early Thursday morning, telling fans that she would remove "Do What You Want (With My Body), her 2013 single with Kelly, as soon as possible".

Gaga, a sexual assault survivor herself, wrote that she recorded the song during a "dark time" in her life. "So I know that he's a pedophile".
