Russell Simmons Doc Gets Picked Up


Last month the unauthorized Russell Simmons documentary, On the Record, opened at Sundance to rave reviews after Oprah and Apple TV walked away from the project [click here if you missed that]. 

The film has a new home...

On Monday HBO announced the acquisition of "On the Record" for HBO's new streaming service HBO Max.


The documentary details former Def Jam employee Drew Dixon's claims of being raped by Russell Simmons and other accusations by Sil Lai Abrams, Sheri Hines, Jenny Lumet and Alexia Norton Jones.

The question Russell needs to answer is.... Would you be OK with a man treating your daughters like you treated these women. Be honest Russell. Be honest.

Drew Dixon's claims of being raped by Russell Simmons and other accusations by Sil Lai Abrams, Sheri Hines, Jenny Lumet and Alexia Norton Jones — damn unc. I thought you was a giver...not a taker. Thanks for coming out. Good night. (In a DEF jam comedy voice)

He did take a professional lie detector test and passed but the women seem sincere when they tell their stories so its uncertain what REALLY happened. I think they all really believe their own stories because they perceived what happened differently. Remember, he was actually dating these women. This could be a case where he thought he had friends with benefits but the women feel violated because he was a playboy who used and dispensed of the women he dated. Either way, it is sad! The thing humanity can learn from all of this is . . . men, respect women, even when they are willing participants, if you do not want to be in relationship with them, it is not right for you to use their bodies for your pleasure and discard of them when you are done because it truly damages them! Women, don't give it up so easily, take time to get to know and make sure this man really wants you first. Better yet, return to the old ways, stop all that sexing everybody and wait til marriage - seems prehistoric to some people but it would eliminate ALL this BS going on! IJS

Sexual Deviancy is a sickness that pervades humanity. How much better off would we be if men weren't ruled by their lust for sexual conquests.

. . . and in the meantime, whether this is true or not, they are taking down all the positive black male role models. Ain't seen no documentaries on the yt perpertrators yet!!! Be aware and do better people!

When some of y'all kneegrows start acting like decent human being's, that operate at the highest level of morality, and flee from sexual immorality, you shan't have any scandals attached to your legacy.
