Russell Simmons has come under fire for a comedic video featuring one of the greatest African-American ancestors to walk the earth—Harriet Tubman. The video was used to launch The Russell Simmons “All Def Digital” You Tube page and features Ms. Tubman in a sex scene while being filmed!

There are a lot of African Americans and organizations that have expressed disappointment with Simmons and see his actions as disgracing our ancestors and selling everyone out! Simmons was contacted early this morning by several people and has since taken the video down from his page!

Here’s what he had to say:

In the whole history of Def Comedy Jam, I’ve never taken down a controversial comedian. When my buddies from the NAACP called and asked me to take down the Harriet Tubman video from All Def Digital YouTube channel and apologized, I agreed.

I’m a very liberal person with thick skin. My first impression of the Harriet Tubman piece was that it was about what one of the actors said in the video, that 162 years later, there’s still tremendous injustice. And 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 those I offended, I am sincerely sorry.
