‘I Don’t Understand Why Oprah Is Going After Black Men’ – 50cent


‘I Don’t Understand Why Oprah Is Going After Black Men’ – 50cent

American rapper, 50cent, has backed entertainment mogul Russel Simmons after he was featured in a #MeToo documentary produced by Oprah Winfrey.
Simmons was accused of assault in 2017 but had denied the allegations.

Oprah’s documentary, which is produced in collaboration with Apple TV+, focuses on the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct within the music industry.
“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” 50cent posted on his Instagram page. “No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal Jackson and Russell Simmons this shit is sad. Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal Jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts. These documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”

Meanwhile, Simmons himself has also responded to the documentary.
He said although he used to be “a playboy”, he has “never been violent or forced myself on anyone”.
“I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today “womanizer”) sleeping with and putting myself in more compromising situations than almost any man I know,” Simmons wrote on Instagram.

“Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection of the same experiences. Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand-chosen women. I have refused to get in the mud with any accusers, but let’s acknowledge what I have shared.

“I have taken and passed nine 3-hour lie detector tests (taken for my daughters), that these stories have been passed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS. Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that “hurt people hurt people”. Today I received a call from an old girlfriend from the early 1980s which means that they are using my words/evidence against me and their COMMITMENT/ (all of the claims are 25 to 40 years old) It is impossible to prove what happened 40 years ago, but in my case proof exists of what didn’t happen, mostly signed letters from their own parents, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and in the case of 2 of your 3 accusers,their own words in their books. Shocking how many people have misused this important powerful revolution for relevance and money.

“Maybe you should name your documentary “FLAVOR OF LOVE”!? In closing, I am guilty of exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, but I have never been violent or forced myself on anyone.”
