50 Cent and Russell Simmons Blast Oprah For “Going After Black Men”

AppleTV announced that Oprah is producing a new #MeToo documentary that will highlight the story of Drew Dixon, the former Def Jam music executive who is one of several women to make sexual assault allegations against Russell Simons. As suspected the 62-year-old was not excited to hear about the new project. Taking to Instagram, he called out Oprah for singling him out.

In his message the father of ____ admitted to being a “womanizer” in the past and “exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society,” However he continuously denies ever being violent or forceful to anyone.

50 Cent has come to Simmons’ defense also addressing Oprah via social media.

The rapper’s message went a step further accusing the billionaire of “going after black men.” After pointing out the imbalance of justice delt to black men, he went on to call out Gayle King for giving R. Kelly what he calls a “death blow.”

This is not the first time media maven and music mogul have been at odds. Last year she dropped him from her book The Wisdom of Sundays amidst the growing allegations.
