Russell Simmons Apologizes For Harriet Tubman Sex Tape Video

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Russell Simmons is apologizing after the "Harriet Tubman Sex Tape" posted on his All Def Digital YouTube channel came under scrutiny this week.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Harriet Tubman Sex Tape Still

The "Harriet Tubman Sex Tape" depicts an actress portraying the famous abolitionist who illegally freed hundreds if not thousands of slaves in the 1800s.

Only here, the fictional Tubman (1820-1913) is seen having sex with her slave "Massa" in order to allow her to run the famed Underground Railroad.

The video has since been taken down.

Simmons issued an apology on Globalgrind (dot) com in which he says he was contacted by his "buddies" at the NAACP asking for removal of the video.

"I'm a very liberal person with thick skin," wrote Simmons.

"My first impression of the Harriet Tubman piece was that it was about what one of actors said in the video, that 162 years later, there's still tremendous injustice."

The 55-year-old entrepreneur continued:

"With Harriet Tubman outwitting the slave master? I thought it was politically correct. Silly me. I can now understand why so many people are upset."

"I have taken down the video. Lastly, I would never condone violence against women in any form, and for all of those I offended, I am sincerely sorry."
