    The six-part Lifetime documentary included testimony from women who accuse Kelly of mental, physical and sexual abuse

    A Facebook page that sought to discredit women who accused R. Kelly of abuse has been pulled for violating the social media network's terms of service.

    The page, "Surviving Lies," used an image of Pinocchio as its profile photo. Facebook removed it Monday after posts on it attacking at least two of Kelly's accusers who took part in a docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" that aired late last week.

    One post read: “Why are these facts regarding #RKellys accusers being ignored? You be the judge!”

    The six-part Lifetime documentary included testimony from women who accuse Kelly of mental, physical and sexual abuse, as well as interviews with associates and relatives of the singer. It aired from Thursday to Sunday.
