Watch Video: Russell Simmons Says He’s Sorry About that Video And That Black Women Pushed Him Around

Watch Video: Russell Simmons Says He’s Sorry About that Video And That Black Women Pushed Him Around

I figured that headline would get your attention, but
that’s what Russell Simmons actually says
in this just released video interview over that infamous Harriet Tubman sex tape comedy bit.

Still on serious damage control, Simmons talks about
the video, what he thought the message of the video was trying to convey and
his reaction to the controversy it caused practically 30 seconds after it came
out.

As you will see, Simmons in his own unique, convoluted way, tries
to explain how he was shocked and had no idea the kind of anger it would
create, and gets in a dis at Spike Lee too.

Enjoy!
