Russell Simmons Apologizes For The Harriett Tubman Sex Tape
Russell Simmons has successfully pissed off almost every black women in America with one video.
Russell Simmons’ new YouTube Channel, All Def Digital, recently launched, and in an attempt to gain subscribers, the powers that be thought that it would be a great idea to put together a Harriet Tubman sex tape for laughs.
WRONG! This horrible attempt at a skit/ joke that succeeded in disrespecting the very fiber of a black woman’s being now has Russell apologizing and he has since removed the video from All Def Digital.
Simmons apology goes as follows:
In the whole history of Def Comedy Jam, I’ve never taken down a controversial comedian. When my buddies from the NAACP called and asked me to take down the Harriet Tubman video from the All Def Digital YouTube channel and apologize, I agreed.
I’m a very liberal person with thick skin. My first impression of the Harriet Tubman piece was that it was about what one of actors said in the video, that 162 years later, there’s still tremendous injustice. And with Harriet Tubman outwitting the slave master? I thought it was politically correct. Silly me. I can now understand why so many people are upset. I have taken down the video. Lastly, I would never condone violence against women in any form, and for all of those I offended, I am sincerely sorry.
I managed to find the video, and it is posted above. I thought you knew better Russell, now that you do, do better.
