Russell Simmons vs André Leon Talley


Russell Simmons fires back after André Leon Talley says he doesn't deserve to sit front row during fashion week because of that disgusting Harriett Tubman sex tape...

Last month Russell Simmons was forced to apologize after posting a comedy skit on Youtube called The Harriet Tubman Sex Tapes [click here if you missed that].

It was apology not accepted for Vogue contributing editor André Leon Talley who told The Grio,
“I don’t think Russell Simmons should be seated on anybody’s front row this week after having done that disgusting Harriet Tubman sex tape. He is a man of great achievement. He is a great philanthropist….why would he think it would be an honorable thing to do? He said he thought it was funny. That is not funny it is outrageously disrespectful to the legacy and history of Harriet Tubman and to the struggle.”
Russell was not amused and lashed out at André on Twitter.

And you’ll wonder why black women are dating and marrying other races of men. Some Black men are more catty then 10 yr. old little rich white girls. This does not get the vulva moist at all. LOL.

Mr. Simmons there are a lot of Black People who are not amused by your actions. A simple apology will not do. This should have never, ever happened. I don't give a damn about the committes you sit on. People like you think you can do what ever the fuck you want because it's you. You ain't that important in any movement. Gays will gets their rights with or without you.

Russell...when you weren't with your boys...you were dating young underage NON-BLACK models...tell the truth...you're only out for yourself, the dollar and apparently you don't like BLACK WOMEN!

13 Andre - 0 Russ. No rules here. So, Andre has the lead.

Wtf has Ruckus Simmons done for blacks in fashion exactly? His manky clothing line never garnered universal respect in the fashion world. He loves to blow his own trumpet about a lot of things but i have yet to see any substantial evidence in his favor to back up his preposterous claims.

Haterade said...

These demonic queens should keep their nonsense amongst each other. Russell Simmons is the definition of a House Nigger. He kisses white folks asses while tearing down his own race. The Harriet Tubman skit was bad enough, but the Rush Card ripoff was even worse and it was targeted to black folks.

I have more respect for Clarence Thomas than I do Russell Coon.

I'm team Andre on this one. Russell has been a vampire in the fashion industry compared to Andre who a walking encyclopedia of black and white fashion history. The only front row Russell should be on is Baby Phat and Phat Farm. Do they still make Phat Farm???

"I have more respect for Clarence Thomas than I do Russell Coon."

Nothing more to be said and I co-sign 100%. That Russell Simmons, what a fuqqing COON!

Anonymous said...

The biggest champion of Russell Simmons is Russell Simmons. His self-delusion demonstrates him believing he makes a worthwhile difference to the lives of black folk when in actuality he uses the very black ppl he thinks are beneath him to boost his profile and bank balance.
He's the pestilence trying to destroy the black community and is rewarded very handsomely indeed by the white establishment for doing such.

Russell just needed to apologize and move on because the rest of those tweets made him look like a butt hurt little girl.

Don't get carried away. Clarence Thomas. Oh hell no.lol.

But you're right both of these coons are totally worthless. That house of sand their lives are built on will come crumbling down one day and they'll have no place to turn.

Andre is CORRECT the tape was/is not funny. Rusty Russell talking about what he did for fashion, gays and mandatory minimunm. Bitch Russell are you serious, some of your shit helped put brothers in prison in the first place trying to live that life that artist you put on rapped about.

Harriet Tubman elevated a people and bitch you don't deserve to even speak her name. Evil ass fraud.

I think Eric Holder was the reasons for the mandatory minimum change, he does run the Justice Department and the Obama Administration does agree with the change in minimum sentencing. Russell Simmons, Leon Tally handed you the truth and you got pissed. You supported Gay Marriage, I don't remember you holding a rally or donating to the cause or volunteering. Like really? Russell Simmons is doing the most, I never liked him. You don't see other raced doing Anne Frank sex tape skits, Sacajawea sex tape skits, Susan B. Anthony sex tape skits -- because people respect the struggle and know everything is not a laughing matter. F#ck Russell Simmons!

I agree with Andre. If Bill O'Reilly or Glenn Beck made the Harriet Tubman sex tape and called it funny, Russell would be leading the charge to remove them from TV. But because Russell did it, he should get a pass?

Coon nigga, please.

Kimora threatened Russell that if he did not shut up and pay the monies during their break-up, that she would tell the world that one of his daughters were not his biological child. Punk paid up and shut up not another word was spoken. Russell Simmons the OC (ORIGINAL COON)

Russell is and always has been wack. I never had any respect for the dude, especially after he started acting like a fake ass swami.

Anonymous said...

@7:47 It's his youngest daughter right?!

Anyhoo, I love Andre Leon Talley's statement. It was very eloquently said.

I'ma need for Russel to have a seat some damn where, preferably in a black history class. His uncle Tom ass has lost his mind thinking the Harriet Tubman skit was funny. Just goes to show how out of touch he is with his own people. Coon.

@ 10:14 Thank you! I'm not dating outside my race for no damn body. I see comments like that pop up every now and again and I have a blank stare on my face. Because hunty somebody is spreading false info that ALL if not the majority of black women are dating outside our race. coons like Uncle Ruckus don't stop no show. There are good and bad seeds in every race. Yet for some reason when one black person does something wrong we're all labeled bad. In this case a black man has showed his ignorant ass so all black men are bad, and black women need to start dating outside their race. That shit is ludicrous. My preference is and always will be black men. Take your rainbow dick loving ass the hell on bitch!

Russell is wrong, but Talley isn't much better. Talley has been discussing racism in the fashion industry, but he's too scared to call out any designers--he's just blowing hot air. Neither one of them gives a damn about black women.

YEP THATS RIGHT!!!

The Bible calls these ugly white race YOUR ENEMIES. They aint getting to heaven, because heaven wasnt created for them. They wasting their time praying to a white christ that don't exist.

According to the Bible Christ is a BLACK MAN!!!!

Get mad now, you coons and caucasians. Yall gonna be put to death anyway.

...and lastly, you stupid black men and black women who think marrying white people is the solution, I got a Great Wall in China to sell to your dumbass!!!!



The Lord COMMANDS in the Bible not to marry white people, because it messes up your inheritance from the Lord. A child whose father is white, but born from a black woman IS STILL A WHITE CHILD, BECAUSE YOU ARE WHO YOUR FATHER IS. THE BIBLE GOES BY THE DNA OF THE MALE NOT THE FEMALE, AND THAT MIXED CHILD HAS ZERO INHERITANCE FROM THE LORD!!!!!

Dirtydianna said...

You need to stop! ^ your ass is not moses, peter, or paul...God dam it....do not get on here talking somebody is not getting into heaven bc they marry somebody of a different race....when was the last time Jesus called you on the hot line.....i love my people to DEATH, but some you all get on my last nerve..#biblethumpers

You best believe that when the Lord says that it aint NO WHITE BLOOD that will inherit HIS kingdom, you best believe that it WILL BE SO, whether you believe it or not, or like it or not.

You better read HEBREWS 12:16-17

'' ...Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.

17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: FOR HE FOUND NO PLACE OF REPENTANCE, though he sought it carefully with tears.


THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS, YOUR BELOVED WHITE MAN AINT GETTING NOTHING FROM THE LORD. THEY ARE JUST A WASTE OF SPACE ON THIS EARTH. PERIOD!!!

@DirtyDianna


NO YOU DON'T LOVE YOUR PEOPLE, YOU LOVE THE WHITE MAN. That white image of christ is imbedded in your subconsciousness, and thats why you reject what the Word of God is about.

The Word ( Bible ) is not a religious book for all races, IT IS A HISTORY BOOK AND CODED MESSAGE FOR THE LORDS PEOPLE ISRAEL ( BLACKS AND NATIVE INDIANS AND LATINOS )----> These are who BLACK MAN CHRIST came to save!!! Period!!

These so-called false sunday churches and pastors don't teach yall nothing, because they don't know nothing. And the ones that do know this TRUTH have been paid by the ENEMY ( the white man ) to keep this TRUTH from HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.

Heck, I bet you don't even know Why blacks are called His chosen people?

This stems from low opinion of black women & lack of respect. Russell is just a symptom of a larger issue that black women are inferior. We have to stop the b!tches and h@3s nme calling in all forms of media. I don't support it financially

And before a simpleton comes here and says some bull crap about the Bible being a white man's book, I got TWO PYRAMIDS in Egypt for sale too!!!

Yall better get knowledge of who you are according to the Bible.

Why you think they kept slaves from reading????? Because they knew that if the slaves read the Bible, the slaves would find out that everything that the devil white masters told them WAS A BLOODY LIE!!!


THE BIBLE SPEAKS HEAVILY AGAINST THE ENTIRE RACE OF WHITE PEOPLE, so ,NO! the Bible aint a book written by no damn white person.

All they did was twist the scripture into giving you a white christ, and giving you that stupid sunday church shucking and jiving bull crap!!!

Yall better get outta them stupid sunday churches. Because that route is a very dead end. Period.

To the Bible posting commentor. You've said so much on here, i'd love to address it all, but i really don't have that kind of time. But a lot of the things you've said i've been hearing a lot as of late/the last few years. The one about the holidays. Going to church on Sundays and us being God's chosen people. Do elaborate further on why we're called his chosen people? I can't fathom how and why we're the chosen ones, yet we were made to go through 400yrs of slavery.

Yep. Russell, you have done so much for Blacks and the fashion world that Iman, Naomi Campbell and other "supermodels" are screaming racism on the catwalk and threatening to boycott certain designers. Looks like whatever you're doing or have done is setting Black folks back, instead of moving forward...just like that Harriet Tubman video.

http://www.vogue.co.uk/news/2013/08/12/imans-racist-fashion-brand-boycott

I'm personally not bothered by the waning presence of Blacks representing non-Black designers on catwalks, mags, and ads, etc. I prefer to see Blacks representing Black designers on catwalks, mags, and ads, etc., instead of whining about not being able to be seen where they are not welcome. That's too much like Blacks asking to be served at lunch counters and drink from water fountains where Blacks were clearly and widely known not to be welcome, while other races and cultures would establish their own entities and circulate their goods and currency and business contacts amongst themselves times over, instead of worrying about what others are doing, thinking, or saying about them.

@9:51 AM Christ died for all of our sins. What church do you go to?

On topic: Russell Simmons' Jiminey Cricket looking a$$ has no respect for his people. Those three hundred plus slaves(EST)Harriet Tubman rescued and sneaked through the underground railroad, up north, to Canada, New York, et. al. could be related to anyone of us on this blog. If it wasn't for brave women and men like Tubman who paved the way for future generations of black people, slavery would have lingered on longer and there would have never been a Russell Simmons clothing line, a black president, civil rights leaders like Malcolm and MLK or a RWS blog where we can go and exercise our first amendment, Freedom of Speech rights, something our ancestors in slavery NEVER had.

Look, Talley was Creative Director (!) at Conde Nast and Wintour's confidant. If he was unable to make changes from that high perch, then it's unlikely he'll have any impact sitting on the sofa of The View.

Apart from that, yes, there is more than one way to skin a cat and there's more than one way to earn a living.

That is not funny it is outrageously disrespectful to the legacy and history of Harriet Tubman and to the struggle."
--------------------------------------
He didn't take anything away from Russell's accomplishments but also made a point to pretty much say a man of such accomplishments should know better. It's good to see the older generation stand up and call others out when they're disrespecting our culture and teaching ignorance. Russell should know better and do better. Take your chastising like a man and don't try to bring up unrelated digs Russy!

Mr. R. Simmons, don't know what ethnic group you identify with but we as Black people are here and must be acknowledged and respected. Mr. Talley gave you your just do when speaking of your career achievements but we must also call out your shame in your horrendous disrespect of Ms. Harriett Tubman, unfortunately that too will be apart of your legacy. A world platform cannot/will not stand on shallow ground, use it well. We are watching!
