NEW YORK — Kesha’s fans on Friday called on Sony to cut ties with the producer she has accused of raping her.

About 35 Kesha fans gathered outside Sony’s headquarters to deliver petitions with more than 411,000 signatures demanding that the label release Kesha from her Sony recording contract and drop the producer, Dr. Luke.

Armed with signs that said “Free Kesha Now,” the group chanted “Do the right thing!” and “People over profits!”

The producer, born Lukasz Gottwald, is not charged with any crime. He says Kesha fabricated her story to get out of her contract.
