Tidal Pulls BLM Panel Over Russell Simmons Backlash


Tidal forced to pull Black Lives Matter panel after backlash over the inclusion of Russell Simmons...

It all started after Tidal advertised the Drink Champs podcast panel on Black Lives Matter featuring Noreaga, DJ EFN, Marc Lamont Hill, Talib Kweli, Mysonne, Bun B and Russell Simmons.



After the clip went viral Sil Abrams, one of Russell Simmons' multiple rape accusers [click here if you missed that], blasted Jay Z and Diddy for low key trying to rehab Russell's image using their huge media platforms Tidal and Revolt TV







Later Tidal tried to quietly pull the promo without making a statement but Sil asked her followers if anyone saved it.



Since  nothing ever really gets erased from the internet someone was all too happy to provide Sil with the mysteriously deleted promo video.

Stay on that neck girl! I ain't mad. And why would anyone think Puffy, Jay or 50 really gives a damn about the plight of Black women? Their misogynistic track records speak for itself. Those niggas are only loyal to one thing and one thing only: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I don't get why the public BLM conversations keep featuring celebrities and not intellectuals, educators, and policy makers. At the end of the day, what is Russ really supposed to add to it anyway?

What about the black women that don't believe you Sil? Have these allegations been proven in court? Does she speak for all black women? And Jay Z and Puff and most rappers have their skeletons. They have never been for black women or any type of woman. So what do you expect?

All these type men stick together, I don't know why women continue to support rap music or any music that disrespects women, or industry that promote disrespects of women. Jay Z and Puffy have enough skeletons in their closet to fill a community pool. Nine times out of ten men will stick together, how often do you hear these fools come for other men caught out there, yet still the black women continue to march for them every time one of them in killed by white cops, mind you how many black men we see marching for the black women killed by white cops? or killed by black men in domestic violence? how often do any of these black men come to the rescue of black women, which are the most unprotected in society by our men, next to the Hindu women. These niggas support rape, drugs, murder, mayhem and misogyny in their music on a regular. It's long past the time to cancel the entire lot of them.

This is not funny but it is because ppl want to hear from the celebrity's but not the ones Puff & J selected. You might as well throw T.I. in the mix and let him use big words out of context. I really dont understand how you have a show called Drink Champs w/Noreaga in a serious conversation. All they talk about is their past indiscretions and drink.

No....but seriously you need some affluent ppl that know what they are talking about and have the track record to prove it. We know that Yt media likes to trolls our on line social outlets and quote everything we say. Mostly the ignorant comments. Only M Hill has that intelligence to me. I dont know about Talib Kweli or Mysonne.

Im glad for my education and I can think for myself.

@12:04 Not ONE of them adds to BLM. The head of BLM gave an interview and she was poised, educated and made sense in her positions. First time I had respect for this organization - she needs to get the educated, principled and policymakers on the forefront of this movement (not these jokers).

Ms. lady is trying to squeeze water out of a rock. JayZ and Puff have done the women they're closest to and love most dirty af. As a total stranger they will pay you less than dust. Make ya noise but don't expect a dayum thang from those coons out here sucking up all the good air.

Everybody should know that Russ' name isn't good right now. He isn't in exile for nothing.
