Civil rights activist Najee Ali is urging a boycott of Russell Simmons in response to his now-infamous Harriet Tubman sex tape comedy skit and "weak" apology.

Ali, director of Project Islamic Hope, wants to boycott all of Simmons‘ business interests over the video, which depicts Tubman having sex with a white slave owner.

Russell Simmons' apology didn't cut it either, she says:

“Russell Simmons’ half hearted, and weak apology is not being accepted ... to portray Tubman an icon and one of the most bravest women in our nations history in this manner is inexcusable."

“Slavery was not a joke."

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.

He says there's no such thing as the Illuminati, a group that supposedly runs the world and counts among its members Oprah, Kanye, Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Asked if he could confirm or deny the alleged members, or even acknowledge the group's existence, he said "Are you kidding me?" and that it's all a myth.

You buying that?!

A day after Frank Ocean admitted to the world that he has shared at least one sexual experience with a man, music mogul Russell Simmons has come out in full support of the R&B star.

In a Global Grind entry, the Def Jam Records founder reached out to Ocean and wrote:

Today is a big day for hip-hop. It is a day that will define who we really are. How compassionate will we be? How loving can we be? How inclusive are we?

I am profoundly moved by the courage and honesty of Frank Ocean. Your decision to go public about your sexual orientation gives hope and light to so many young people still living in fear. These types of secrets should not matter anymore, but we know they do, and because of that I decided to write this short statement of support for one of the greatest new artists we have.

His gifts are undeniable. His talent, enormous. His bravery, incredible. His actions this morning will uplift our consciousness and allow us to become better people. Every single one of us is born with peace and tranquility in our heart. Frank just found his.

Frank, we thank you. We support you. We love you.

That pretty much says it all, doesn't it?

The same day that his estranged wife Kimora Lee Simmons filed for divorce, music mogul Russell Simmons stepped out in New York with his new gal.

That would be the gorgeous model, Porschla Coleman. For those of you who are unaware, Porschla won the model competition on Star Search in 2003.

Kimora Lee who? Russell Simmons and Porschla Coleman appear quite happy.

Divorce never looked so hot to us. What do you think, fans? Is Porschla Coleman a bona fide upgrade over Kimora Lee Simmons, or just a cheap knockoff?
