Russell Simmons Apologizes for Harriet Tubman Sex Tape


Yesterday Russell Simmons caused an uproar online after hosting a comedy skit on his Youtube channel called The Harriet Tubman Sex Tapes...

First Russell Tweeted a link to the video calling it the funniest thing he'd ever seen.


but after an intense dragging Russell was forced to take it down and apologize.

Russell writes,
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.

Nigger, you aint sorry about a mf-ing thing because if you were you would never had done it. I bet you probably have watch these several times with your rich white friends, laughing like this shit is cute. Niggers get a little money, accepted by whites and lose their mf-ing minds.

I'm by surprise, music endeavors aside he has only achieved wealth by catering to the useful idiots.

@9:45 He types how his lisp having, Jiminy Cricket looking ass talks.

Now that he's moved on up in the world things like this wouldn't bother him. Because his bowing to whitey ass probably thinks he's been accepted by them. What a dummy! The coonery in this century is astounding.

how do you start an apology by saying i guess i have a sensitivity chip missing and then follow it by LOL?! that negates the apology. I always thought he was a fraud anyway. face ass activist

If it was soooooo hilarious Russell, why not get your Nieces or Girlfriend(s) to star in this horrible depiction?

What was the meaning of this post, to see how many insensitive blacks would come for Russ. Any depiction of the black races past...is just that the past. Get over yourself black American. The clips were funny. Have some backbone. Sincerely - The African (a real african)

@10:51 you are ignorant at best. Slavery was ONLY 140 years ago; that's the life span of a 70 year old grandmother and her 70 year old daughter. We should never forget and/or 'get over' our past and allow someone to disrespect and dishonor it. Part of the problem with black people in this country is we allow people (even our own) to make a mockery of us and instead of holding those people accountable, we sweep it under the rug, send the message that our history is not valuable and tell people to get over themselves. No other race or demographic is asked to get over themselves or to leave the past in the past when they are regarded with blatant impiety. Think I am lying? Let's see Russell make a video about Holocaust rape victims and see what happens. Further, it's failing frustrating that you would find the rape of ANY woman, especially a black woman (since you found it so important to note that you are "a real african") funny. God help us all.

I've been saying for a while that this Uncle Ruckus bootlicking filth has long been disengaged from ordinary black folk and evidently moreso black women. These are the ones black ppl have to be most vigilant of because these are the traitors in our midst and the enemy within. These white supremacists with black skin have been falling under the radar of most of the black public's gaze for too long and have been causing the most damage of all to the black community by stirring up animosity between us to the point we'd rather kill each other. These are the types that ultimately pulled the trigger on Malcolm X. Now it's done more subtly and perversely through hiphop music that Russell Simmons was behind and that has polluted many a young mind in the black community.

Honestly I wish more black ppl would wake up and turn the trigger on the poisonous vermin like Simmons and all the rest of the coons shucking and jiving for the white man in the name of entertainment, seeking to elevate their wretched status in yt's eyes by denigrating, ridiculing and trivializing great black ppl like Harriet Tubman who put her life on the line freeing other slaves, thus his ancestors. Harriet Tubman stood up for her people and risked her life in doing so, what's he done? Oh I forgot he does the white supremacists dirty work, fucking turd and that goes for his whole family too even his 2 ugly ass brats.

Thank you 11:15 and 11:35!!! I refuse to type anymore words on the subject of Russell Simmons, or his fake ass Bro Rev. Run. That whole family is fake as hell!! After Russell sold out DefJam (Public Enemy and several conscious hip-hop acts) to Island records, I was done! This sold hip-hop upstream right into YT hands. Hip-hop aint' been the same since. We know think it's ok to denigrate the black woman..the very same women who gave life to these self-hating, I don't want to date a black woman or dark woman slaves. Hip-hop is the new slavery in a sense, because it does nothing to uplight our people as Hip-hop once did....thanks to Russell and others who sold their souls to YT music establishment.

Sorry for the typo's this morning...Yall know what I mean! I've been heated, because we all know about Blood Diamond Russell Simmons and it just makes me angry whenever I hear about his wack ass!!!! Going back to work yall!

@11:54, I know trust me when I tell you, Africans don't troll on black blogs, you know when they are really from there because most of them have intelligent, full on, educated discussions about the topic, without being disrespectful. Divide and conquer is the name of the game. 10:51 is a straight poser. RUssell is a poser as well, what a pathetic human.

What a DESPICABLE being! It wasn't enough to sell your soul for 30 pieces of silver, now you want to sell out our sacred historical heroes, who risked their own lives, to help their brothers and sisters in chains, escape to a better life! Now it is all suppose to be a big joke, a laugh riot, so whitey can feel All's Well That Ends Well. Whitey must be feeling REAL uncomfortable and has amassed the paid sellouts to help them feel better by making a mockery of sacred Blacks in history and the coon wagon is full of those who are willing to coon out, laugh nervously and tell the rest of us how times have changed, it's just a joke, no offense, get over ourselves! No Uncle Ruskas, why don't you just go give aid and comfort to Gwynnie Paltrow, Paula Deen, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly aka Billo Riled-up! Or better yet, why don't you just go do what Judas did...go lynch yourself....just for the laughs....it'll be funny to whitey.....you know, cause your skin is SO thick! Now L O muthafukin L at that!

11:18 BITCH please HOW ABOUT YOU EAT SH-T and DIE?!!!

We all know and have known what type of person SELL OUT simmons is. He has put it in our face for years that he only deals with non black woman. Oh he may smash a black woman, but as far as him actually calling one his lady...I think not. All that he is doing and has done he will have to deal with when his time here on earth comes. The Higher Power will deal with him.

I notice his nephew is also trying to break into the music and entertainment business. We must no longer support any of them in their endeavours. We shouldnt buy into their music or films cos all we ever do is build them up so they can have a great big dump on us from on high. Well I say no more, I support nothin to do with black men.

@BK Chick, So it was Russel's shucking and jiving ass that sold Hip Hop to YT was it...? Thanks for that!

I have been wondering for the longest time why moguls like him and Diddy didn't do all they could to save Hip Hop! They front like they're "down" when in actuality the only thing they're down for is the almighty dollar. Sellouts! Harriet Tubman and the rest of our ancestors are turning in their graves at the blatant disresepect and coonery going on today. It almost seems like they went through their trials, tribulations, pain and suffering for nothing.

This generation of Black people is a joke. A laughable, embarrassing, pitiful joke. Black people hate themselves so much today that we just lost touch with how we got where we are today. We are fucked.

You don't see shit like this about Cesar Chavez, the late Ethiopian president Haile Selassie I, or any other important historical culture figure among other ethnic groups. If this were some important Jewish historical figure, the Jews would be all over this. If this were Haile Salassie screwing some white Italian woman, the Ethiopians would raise hell. If this were Cesar Chavez, the Mexican/Latinos would raise hell. But this is Harriet Tubman, and these Black ass niggas are cosigning the humor?

Fuck Russell's ugly closeted faggot ass. Nigga look like a suntanned fetus with his circumcised boiled shrimp dick looking head! Fuck him and his underaged model hoe/escort.

I guess it is funny that slave masters raped their slaves, so some 162 years later we think it is okay to make faux sex tape of a trailblazing black women reputation being demean for a few laughs. He would not dare do that shit to Susan B. Anthony, maybe he would do it to Sacajawea. We take a lot of mess and especially from other blacks. We need to hold people accountable, but most of all we need need to hold ourselves accountable. FUCK RUSSELL SIMMONS. RUSSELL YOU ARE A BITCH.

@ 1:46pm I don't share your belief that his kids are beyond reproach in the same way he engineered the kind of destructive music that his chosen artists were to specifically target black youth and children alike with when he was at Def Jam. The kind of music that some of the black community has now become so numb to nowadays, that promotes violence, cursing females out their name, materialism at all costs, anti-education and general thuggish behavior which he has time and time again not only promoted but defended to the hilt.

He saw the vice-like grip that rap music had on black youth, almost like a religion and he sought to exploit it by turning something that was formely actually quite beautiful, fun-natured (even though there were rap battles), uplifting and conscious and distorted it into something very ugly and toxic that engulfed the minds of so many black kids in such a negative fashion that its partly been responsible for the deaths of so many as they try to literally live out the lyrics spat by their heroes and the images they see being played out in rap videos. I think he's played a big contributing role to the destruction of black youth so no, I will not leave his kids out of this one.

Malcom X said; "The worst crime the white man committed on us, was to teach us to HATE OURSELVES" Such truer words have never been spoken. Historically, since women generally the world over have been blamed for all that is wrong in the world, I guess Black women are the easiest target to disrespect, blame, mock, ridicule and hate, by weak ass men and simple minds of ignorant people, this kind of thing is to be expected....except that it is MIND BOGGLING HORRIFIC and CRUEL....and we Black women DO NOT expect it to come from so called Black men...not even half ass Black men like Russell Simmons and the Charles Barkleys of the world. REAL Black MEN....y'all need to step up.
